I recently went to an estate sale that had thousands of Raggedy Ann and Andy stuff. It was crazy. I refrained from taking pictures mostly because the guy that did this particular estate sale really gets on my nerves. Every time I go to one of his I tell myself I won’t go back to another. But I do. By the way I only bought one raggedy thing: a golden book. But I’m not having regrets as it was interesting to me to see this massive collection. I couldn’t stop looking at everything. I myself do love Raggedy Ann and Andy but not enough to have everything in the whole wide world with their faces on it.
Luckily there were more sales and a few treasures to be found.
I love this mother silhouette, I found several but this is the only one I’ve cleaned up.
I was having such a burst of energy last week with decorating and cleaning and baking. It was so cheery! But I should have known it was a pre-gross-virus burst of energy b/c all too soon I was having some really bad thoughts about everything I have ever had to eat in my whole life. The little guys bounced back rather quickly and entertained me with questions like You sick, mom? Why you sick, mom? You feel better, mom? Why you still sick, mom?
Henry drew a portrait of me as I dozed in and out while watching lots of movies, it’s pretty accurate.
My mother must have had some motherly tlc intuition as she sent me an envelope out of the blue with lovely things to look through. Thank you, Mom! I love the old magazines, especially this one.
The articles are still relevant:
And there are many words that should still be used in our everyday speech like cookery:
Julia Child used the word cookery often. I like it.
And how about toggery?
Especially Toggery for Tiny Tots. I want some Toggery, don’t you?
Our local news said there is a lot of flu going around, I hope it isn’t where you are. But if it is try not to think about enchiladas or eating baked beans or the way hard boiled eggs taste when you burp them up.
I always like to be of any help I can….
