As promised, I started scanning the pages in my "new" vintage childrens books and since it is REDnesday, I thought I would share two that have quite a bit of red in them. I had a teensy tiny problem though, the entire page would not fit on my scanner bed so I had to make two scans for each page. I'm also thinking I might need to reduce the resolution the next time I scan this book because the paper has a little bit of a texture and it distorts the pictures just a little. Anyway, here are two of the pages, I hope you enjoy them! xxoo Nan

  You can right click on any of the images to bring up a larger image,
then right click and save!


 And don't forget to visit Sue at A Very Cherry World 
for more REDnesday fun!


  1. Thank you for some good memories. I have not read the books, but as a child we played these games. Nice blog and post.

  2. thanks for the images, I'm saving them.

  3. These images are gorgeous! I remember that I had books with sweet images like that...I must see if my mum still has them.

    Glad you had a good break-welcome back!

    Best wishes,

  4. Hi NanE Sweetie...
    Oh my gosh, I love this children's book and these pages are so devine. I love the little faces, and oh my gosh look at the bonnet. Is that not priceless? The little sailor outfit is so darn cute, and even look at the whistle in the other little boy's mouth.

    And the little boy with the puppy, releasing the fish into the pond, and look at those little cheeks, oh my are they ever precious.

    Oh thank you for sharing with me. I so love it when you do.

    Have a gorgeous Wednesday sweetie.

    Many hugs and much love, Sherry
