Once upon a windy day

(Please visit Sue at It's A Very Cherry World for more Rednesday fun!)

I thought this title was a fitting choice for this blustery Los Angeles Rednesday, "Once Upon A Windy Day". I found quite a few "dearly loved" childrens books at my parents house - I think almost all of them were my brothers first and then became mine. They're bringing lots of smiles of remembrance.

Here's the beginning pages of this darling story for you, from 1947, written and illustrated by Jane Flory.


  1. Sally,
    I missed you too!. I was so sorry about your Dad, and as I was going through alot of the same stuff, I couldn't get going on blogging for a long time. I have been reading yours all along, just haven't commented. Anyway, I'm glad to be back. Your book is too cute! Happy Rednesday!

  2. Delightful little book! It's been blustery here for two days and nights. Thankfully, the winds vanished last night. Heavenly peace!

  3. Would you please consider using only comment moderation and forgetting about Blogger's new, and very-difficult-to-read word verification? My eyes will thank you, and, honestly, you really don't need both. It's overkill. Thanks so much!

    1. I had no idea I had word verification, I never chose it. :( thanks for letting me know - have deleted it now.

  4. That book is so cute! I love the colors. It looks very fresh and current, doesn't it? Happy Thursday (I'm a little late. :) xox

  5. I love vintage story books ! This one is fantastic ! 8~)
