1000 Hearts, 1000 Thank You's
YAY! I received my 1000th heart yesterday for my Etsy shop The Silly BooDilly! I am delighted and just want to shout out a great big THANK YOU! to everyone who has been so lovely and kind to take the time to look at my work, and leave me this positive feedback. I sincerely appreciate it! Being an artist can be such a solitary pursuit, the positive affirmation of hearts and blog comments and such, helps keep me feeling connected, and gives me good fuel to keep pursuing my dreams. Thanks!
And here is today's "BooDilly's Daily Dilly":
Vintage Children's Activity Book with 103 Illustrations!
The only reason that I am offering up this children's activity book for sale is because I have two copies! I adore all of the illustrations found in this book! The cardboard cover of this "The New Book of FUN for Children" is a bit faded, and rather blah, That's why I am not bothering to show it) but inside, this book is chock full of wonderful illustrations! 47 pages with a total of 103 black and white illustrations!!! (Click on the photo's to see the images larger, they are super cute!)
Among the illustrations that were signed, I counted 16 illustrations done by the very famous Cobb Shinn including some that would fall into the "Black Americana" collectable arena. Several more were done by the 1940's comic book illustrator Harvey Fuller and some more by the illustrator Nelson White, who also did some comic book illustrations, among other types.
