  1. Poor George! He just got some very bad news and Martha is comforting him! What a good wife! And another beautiful illustration, Coralie!

  2. What a neat old scrapbook you must have! I found my mother's life long friend's diary on eBay. I put in a ridiculously high bid just to make sure I got it. Fortunately, not too many other people wanted it. It was her Girl Scout diary and I think some Girl Scout collectors probably bid too. Anyway, she wrote about doing things with my mother like going to the movies.

  6. Thanks for posting this vintage image. George Washington looks like he's got a heavy heart and Martha is comforting him...At least that's what this image makes me think :) Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather :)
