Very cute. I wonder - did boys actually wear those hats with pointy spikes that look like a king's crown?!

Hey Harriet said...

Fun illustrations! That's the oddest looking turkey I've ever seen! I don't celebrate Thanksgiving where I am, but I'll still try & take your advice & relax a bit ;)

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family. I'm not sure when it is. I thought it was today but my calendar says it's tomorrow. Whenever it is, hope you have a wonderful day!

I look just like that if you can get past the headscarf and tattered yoga pants! Have a peaceful bliss-filled holiday.

I just love the illustrations. I remember one of my friends had older parents and her mother gave her the "Ladies Handbook to Car Repairs" when she got her driver's license...it was her Mother's copy from when she learned to drive!!! We were histerical as we paged through it and it had the same illustrations.

There's a certain dynamic quality to this style- I love the way everything seems to be done with a flourish. Thanks for sharing such a great find. Hope your holiday weekend is relaxing and filled with family.
