For the ninth day of #ABookishHoliday, I’m going a little retro. This is a book that my mom had when I was growing up. I remember paging through it and picking out ideas for my birthday parties as a kid. It’s a classic, as is the retro linoleum floor in our apartment’s kitchen. Even though they end result is an incredibly “busy” composition, I couldn’t resist the opportunity to showcase both of these, together. The “candy” here are actually cough drops. We don’t usually have any candy around the house, so I had to improvise.
