Thank you all who stopped by! I hope you found a new book or two to read or maybe even rediscovered an old favorite. Picture Books have the ability to transport and build iomagination. I encourage you all to invest in a quality book every now and then. I have often found many wonderful titles from my local thrift stores, library sales and BookCloseOuts. If you have access to a public library, make sure to sign up for a card! To rifle through the titles and projects, you can visit my flickr set here. Happy reading!
Picture Book Month: The Little French Whistle
The Little French Whistle Written by Carole Lexa Schaefer Illustrated by Emilie Chollat Published by Knopf Books for Young Readers, 2002 This is a story of a boy and his french whistle. Louie plays too loud and without a care for others and will not share with his cousin. What will the fate of the whistle be? You can make your own candy box whistle to play just as loud as Louie does. All you really need is a small, flattish candy or gum box. This chiclet box is perfect...oh and small raisin boxes work perfectly. All you have to do is enjoy your sweets. Once empty, flip top flaps open and over outside edges of box. Place mouth over opening and....B L O W ! ! ! What do you hear? Is it loud? Is it funny? You can try painting your box and letting it dry thoroughly before playing, or draw on a small piece of paper trimmed to fit around your box, wrap and attach with glue stick or double stick tape. Have fun!
The Wowee Whistle. These came out around Halloween each year. They were made of wax, similar to the wax candy lips that you can still get. You blew on the whistle until you got tired (a skilled musician could actually produce songs), then you chewed up the wax. The wax was infused with a flavor similar to Beeman's gum, and was quite tasty.

carnet de santé de mes enfants
Memories Memories, Carnet De, That Of, Memories, The Mes, Health, My Memories
La généralisation du carnet de santé fut imposée par le ministère de la Santé Publique. Il a été créé en 1938 par Louise Hervieu et mis en place par un arrêté ministériel le 1er juin 1939. Chaque nouveau-né en fut pourvu gratuitement. D’un aspect austère, il resta en usage jusques en 1960 avant de subir de multiples transformations....☫..re pinned by Maurie Daboux..✿

Remember these powdered candies...plastic candy-filled fruits - 1970's
Mmmm sugar glorious sugar.. lol = Childhood memories
Anyone over the age of 30 probably remembers these fruit-shaped plastic candy containers. Heck, they might even still be around today, though I can't recall the last time I've seen them. For those that don't remember them, each one contained a Pixy-Stix like candy powder, the same flavor of whatever the fruit-shape was. I suspect these were distributed by many companies over the years, but these examples were put out by Tom's Foods - a company that did a number of candy bars and packaged snack food items over the years. I really like the variety presented here. These eight containers might represent one of each flavor that was available at the time, though I cannot be certain. This comes from the "Munktiki Collection", a large lot of consumer goods packaging saved and stored by Californian Paul Nielsen during the 1970's. A collection I recently acquired and will be documenting here. For more on Paul's current activities, check out www.munktiki.com.
