Small World

I think I know where these are.

I always read Janet Rudolphs blog " Dying for Chocolate " because chocolate and mysteries...winner winner chicken dinner.

I almost died when I saw this illustration.

I didn't think anyone other than my late mother had these little books, first published in 1954. I always associated them with Mom and Grandma  Engwall because the design is very Swedish in style and just the sort of thing that filled the parsonage in Winthrop, aka all the red , yellow and blue crap you could ever hope to have. I'm not trying to be mean at all. My mother was 100% Swedish , and I grew up with all of it as far as the eye can see.  In all honesty I have a few pieces in the house like the standard wooden plate " No matter where I serve my guest, it seems they like my kitchen best."

Uf Da..I know .

Don't look at me like that , Grandma had one too in her kitchen.

What a vivid memory of my mother .
