I did my interview this morning, finished the outline for a possible book on dealing with marriage crisis, and was crafty! I'd show pictures, but I can't since the gals I was crafting for haven't had their birthdays yet (yes, you, Heidi! and you, Janna!).
I realize I haven't posted photos in waaaaay too long, so I thought I'd share these lovely illustrations. I love vintage books--especially vintage children's primers. These came from Every Day a Surprise, part of the Wonder-Wonder Series and published in 1956 and illustrated by Elizabeth Rice. Like many of the primers I have, this one came from a school library. Audrey loves to read these, and I think I need to get Emma started on them.
Aren't they lovely? I want to print them out and frame them, but I'm not sure where I'd put them.
On another note, I read A Wrinkle in Time by Madeline L'Engle today. How could I have not read this since again since I first read it in the fourth grade? I think this may be one of my new favorite books. I'll write more about it over on The Newbery Project later (click the link on the left).
