Read Me A Story!

Hello, Dear Ones! Here you'll see I was playing with Charlotte before she met her fate as a TV cabinet! She said she really didn't mind! :) If you'd like to see Charlotte's new zest for life, you can click HERE.

I set up a sweet little olden vignette here on her top.

Lovely olden things.

First I'd like to show you my olden Royal Copley Daffodil Vase. Isn't she pretty? She just makes me smile with the pretty yellow daffs and the stems and leaves are the pretty girly pink. I poked in some summery sunflowers. My little vase didn't mind at all.

Next, I want to show you my little olden wrought iron puppy door stop. Just love little Boston Terriers. But look at that darling little face! No smile...

Oh, poor little darling, I hope she sits very still so she won't get stung! I do have some Benadryl just in case!

Olden books! When I was a little girl, every two weeks when my daddy got his pay check, we would go to the dime store and I would get to pick out a book! Somehow I've lost many of my books but do have some survivors!

Here are my Little Peppers books. Oh, how I loved these. I keep these little books on a shelf above where my sewing machine is and now as I look at this snap I see a blue thread! Oh, well... :)

You can see when the copyright was on these two - 1955. I was born in 1951 and was probably around 8 or 9 when I bought these. Now it was so important to me that my books were signed with my little signature. There it is! :)

Now this is the same book as one of the above that I found a few years ago at an antique store. Look how nice the book cover looks ~ so colorful. I saw it and had to have it. Why, do your most wondering tiny minds wonder?

The copyright is the same year of my infamous birth! 1951!

Here are a couple more of my olden books. Just to think my tiny creamy little girl fingers flipped through every one of these pages! :)

The Bobbsey Twins! Did any of you read these little books when you were younger? I also read other Bobbsey Twins books from the school library too.

Just in case someone should grab my little book ~ I put my sig in the front cover again.

Well, Dear Ones, there you have my most olden vignette. Did I make you want to run and pick up a book and get to reading? :) I've often thought I would reread some of my olden books just to be nostalgic, but alas, I haven't done it yet! Maybe when every project is done I will? I won't hold my breath though! :)

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Forever Young

May God bless and keep you always

May your wishes all come true
May you always do for others
And let others do for you
May you build a ladder to the stars
And climb on every rung
May you stay forever young
Forever young, forever young
May you stay forever young.

May you grow up to be righteous
May you grow up to be true
May you always know the truth
And see the lights surrounding you
May you always be courageous
Stand upright and be strong
May you stay forever young
Forever young, forever young
May you stay forever young.

May your hands always be busy
May your feet always be swift
May you have a strong foundation
When the winds of changes shift
May your heart always be joyful
And may your song always be sung
May you stay forever young
Forever young, forever young
May you stay forever young.
~ sung by Rod Stewart
