Wordless Wednesdays; Children's Party Book 1935

Marion is feeling much better. That 93 year young "kid" LOVES my Chocolate Marshmallow Cupcake Ice Cream Cones!!!

Barbara said...

So cute, Louise. Love the games!
Good for Marion! She sure doesn't look her age!

Mae Travels said...

It's great to see Marion!

Pam said...

I hope I look that good at 93!! I love vintage children's books. I have a whole box of them somewhere!

I Wilkerson said...

No way does Marion look 93! But we're all kids at heart, aren't we!

Geraldine Saucier said...

Glad to see Marion is doing better. She looks like she is really enjoying her cupcake ice cream cone.

lena said...

oh, that's marion! great to see her pic here and she looks good. How about your pic?

Alida said...

Lovely post! I need to show it to my children. Very interesting Louise.
Marion looks fab at the age of 93! She has an amazing skin! And I bet she never used any special creams through her life!

Dottie said...

Dear Louise,
Love the pictures of the retro childrens party cookbook! Such a simpler time that was. That book must have really fun, foods, and games to play. You have a gem there. I have never seen Marion before, but you can't tell me she is 93! OH MY Goodness, bless her for sure. She looks so young. That must be because she is living with you...Thanks for sharing, and tell marion it was nice to meet her. Blessings, Dottie :)

My dad is going to be a 93 year old kid later this week! Like Marion, he doesn't look 93. Fun post - thanks.

Savannah Granny said...

Marion is beautiful! She DOES seem to be enjoying those cupcakes, I don't blame her! That was a fun recipe.
Blessings, Ginger

Marjie said...

She looks happy! That's what counts, isn't it?

Great cookbook/party planner. You have some amazing books in your collection.

grace said...

I couldn't help noticing how beautiful her eyes is and her great-grandson has eyes just like her > I agree with Zoe 150% , your 93 y-o kid is happy so buy the gadget :D give Marion a (((hug))) and tell her to eat one for me . Thanks for sharing :)

Good to know Marion is better, Louise. Wishing you a very blessed Christmas!

Lynn said...

Those cones look yummy, Louise. No wonder Marion loves them!

Janet Rudolph said...

Good to see Marion so chipper! Those cones are a must make/bake this season... And, of course I NEED the party book.. Adorable.

Thanks Barbara, I'm so glad you enjoyed it. Marion sure is a gem:)

~~louise~~ said...

Oh she is definitely back to her "robust" self, lol, Mae...

~~louise~~ said...

That makes two of us, Pam. If only I could get her to reveal her secret:) You really should dig out those books. I know I'd love to see them.

~~louise~~ said...

Indeed we are, Inger!!!

~~louise~~ said...

Marion is doing GREAT, Geraldine and she LOVES those cones!

~~louise~~ said...

I didn't realize you haven't seen Marion before, Lena. She is rather camera shy, like me, but I surprised her in the first picture and in the second she actually posed, lol...

~~louise~~ said...

This book is so adorable, Alida. I just had to share it:) I hope your children like it too:)

I think Marion has wonderful skin too. It looks just as amazing in real life:) As far as I know, she has never used special creams. She does however, drink lots and lots of water and the only moisturizer she uses is Vaseline on her face! (uh oh, I may be giving away her secrets:)

~~louise~~ said...

I love children's cookbooks, Dottie. They are so difficult to find these days though:) Marion sure does look terrific for her age. She has such a positive attitude. I think that's what keeps her looking so young:)

kitchen flavours said...

Hi Louise,
I wish sometimes I am a kid! Being a kid is so much more fun than an adult! LOL!
And Marion is looking wonderful, she looks so happy with that delicious ice cream cone!
She looks much younger than her 93 years! :)

bizzybakesb said...

Marion is a kid like me although I have a while to get to 93. She looks lovely and full of life. The children't books are reminders of days gone by.

Cakelaw said...

The book images are gorgeous, and so is Marion!

Pattie T. said...

This was the kind of book I loved as a kid. One with colorful pictures, a holiday theme, and all sorts of tips and project ideas. Glad to see Marion looking so well.

93?! Marion doesn't look it! And she has such great skin! I should start using vaseline on my face so I can look that good when I'm 93... if I ever live that long. Have a great weekend Louise!

Tina said...

Great photos and Marion looks well...and I agree with other comments, she has absolutely gorgeous skin!

Liz Berg said...

Who wouldn't love your ice cream cone cupcakes??? Glad Marion is feeling better!

kumars kitchen said...

Hi Louise, we have a loving 93 yr old child who loves ice cream cones too....it is a blessing to make treats for him so we can feel the pleasure you feel when Marion enjoys your cupcakes...Have A Beautiful Day!!! :-)
