A new Make and Do book, this time not from my childhood. But it would have been right up my alley when I was about 9.
I think this caterpillar pencil case looks like a great idea. Just a little inanimate (for an inanimate object!). Could do with some perking up.
I've never come across a coal glove before. Is it as traditional as a stocking?
But I'm stumped by the reins for a baby doll!
Yeah because those baby dolls are notorious for crawling away when you aren't looking! Best to put reins on them and attach them to a chair or something. :)
I love those retro craft up books - I find them very inspiring.I know that in Germany St.Nicks side kick "Black Peter" would bring coal for the naughty children...this must be what the coal mitten is for.
What a lovely book. I love old craft books too. What's not to love.
I had craft books like that when I was young. I loved them. I still have them. Can't bear to part with them!
Reins! you know, for when you are either riding a bucking baby doll or else hitching one to your wagon. how funny!I've never heard of a coal glove, but I imagine that bird bath is right and that you might want one for naughty children. I was spoiled, so even though I probably deserved one, I always had a stocking instead.Happy Blogtoberfest!
fabulous looking book - i remember books like them from my childhood. i also remember being a teenager and being 'so over them' - isn't it amazing how it all turns around and it's cool again.lx
