Mini Memory Books

Remember the recent post about the thrifted Memory game? I did use some of the cards on small blank books I made. What do you think?

My first thought was to use the cards as the covers, but the way the books are constructed, the spine would have covered too much of the design. So I made the books as I normally do then attached a card to the front cover. Worked out pretty well.

Thanks for looking today!

Flower Pics

Since it is so nice to see blooms this time of year, after what always seems like a long winter, I just wanted to post some pretty shots.  Enjoy!

Have a wonderful day!

Wacky Pack Wednesday

Another Wacky Pack representing good ol' 1973 this week. Everyone knows Ragu pasta sauce, right? I admit, I'm a spaghetti sauce snob and prefer my own sauce, but there is something to be said for opening a jar and heating.

Have a nice day!

Thrifted Memories

The latest finds include two old games. This some what beat up Memory game does hold a lot of memories for me. We played it a lot when I was a kid. I have another set that I also found second-hand. This one I intended to sell (it's incomplete) but see they're not going for as much as I thought, or as much as they used to. So I think I see some craft projects in its future instead.

I also found a very loved Spill and Spell game. Will be selling the dice.

I picked up three old books- a Gregg shorthand, a Dana Girls mystery, and The Egg and I (ever se the movie?). The vase is hand blown crackle glass. My sister has one like it in blue that belonged to our mother. Must be from the early 60s.

 And a pretty neat old tea towel. 
Thanks for stopping by!

The Nest Book

Here is another of my children's books that I thought appropriate for this time of year. The Nest Book which is a Golden Shape Book and was published in 1968.

It illustrates where different animals live-- in a rhyming verse that is not apparent here since I'm not showing all the pages; sorry.

This was my favorite picture in the book.

29 cents, eh? Can't even buy a postage stamp for that today!

Have a good day in your nest!

Do You See It?

My daughter spied this one sunny afternoon. The shadows on this rock seem to spell out "LIFE." Rather cryptic...
