Antique French Children's Book, New Bottle and Ribbon

 In the past two weeks, I found these antique and new French-themed items.   The French book is a treasure, copyright 1922, and in wonderful condition.  I was thrilled to find the fleur-de-lis ribbon in Michaels and the additional bottle in Tuesday Morning, both on sale.

The book has the loveliest illustrations, circa 1920's.   Each page has just a touch of natural aging.

Isn't this sweet?  The little girl's clothing and dolly are styles from the 1920's. 

There are even songs.  I can remember one of my Cajun French aunts telling us to "fais dodo," when we were visiting and it was bedtime.  I'm not sure if it has the same meaning with true French.

A perfect time capsule, although children are the same today. 

~~~~Thank You for visiting~~~~~
