It's late fall, creeping up on Thanksgiving. It's a good day to take a stroll and hit some vintage clothing shops. If I didn't live in an old cape farmhouse and had plenty of closet space, I be in significant trouble. I like clothes; I like junk; I like vintage stuff. Perhaps I might even find a copy of "The Story of Ferdinand" by Munro Leaf and illustrated by Robert Lawson laying around. I wouldn't mind picking up a used copy for my library. Maybe Paul still has his copy. I think I first saw and read his copy one night in high school at his house. I had never seen it before. It never made an appearance in our house growing up. Sheesh! Now how did I ever get here today?

I LOVE the story of Ferdinand! I often used children's illustrated story books in my secondary level creative writing class, and this book is a true classic. Love vintage stores, too.ReplyDelete
:) lovely colours!ReplyDelete
This looks like a great place to browse around and locate some little treasures.ReplyDelete
I checked and your library has the hard copy, the digital and on CD. So many choices.ReplyDelete
Is that the one about the daydreaming bull?ReplyDelete
My days of roaming in places like this are drawing to an end. I don't want any more stuff cluttering my house.
Vintage shopping is such fun, you just never know when you might find that extra special something. I just Googled The story of Ferdinand' as I didn't know it, quite a political history such a simple little story caused!! Hope you're having a good weekend Birdman.ReplyDelete
hmmm. you reminded me of a little plastic ferdinand the bull we had when i was young...ReplyDelete
I like all those things you said, too. That has gotten me into a lot of trouble sometimes, especially when I've lived in a smaller space like a condo.ReplyDelete
Thanks for your nice comment today!
Some unexpected meeting.. reviving old memories again.ReplyDelete
Interesting how most of us as so nostalgic ... I try to indulge when it is not going to clutter my home further...ReplyDelete
I like to browse in vintage shops but rarely purchase anything. I need to give stuff away not collect more. :)ReplyDelete
great light and leaves!ReplyDelete

What a jump you made today!ReplyDelete
I love a good vintage shop!
By a very circuitous route. There's a concept in applied math called The Drunkard's Walk, an illustration of randomness in a geometric setting. I'm not suggesting anything, of course, but is there a store called Isabella down the street?ReplyDelete
