June 7…… my favorite book as a child

I decided to lay all the sewing aside for a bit , although I will say I see light at the end of the tunnel. I just have things like buttons to put on, pants to hem up and zipper tabs to sew down. Then all wedding attire will be done.๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜„

I love the book of Misty written by Marguerite Henry.  I did as a child and still do. It has lovely illustrations that help fuel imagation for young and old, also heartwarming pictures that tell a story all its own. Let’s take a peek at this old book that was printed in 1972 ,given to me as a Christmas gift .


Pictures to fuel the imagination..

   


Heartwarming illustrations…

  
 I grew up not far from Chintcoteague, visited there occasionally ( Chincoteague has the best fried oyster ever!!!) but loved going to Assateague to see the wild ponies,playing in the sand and enjoying the ocean.

My children have had this book read to them, now it’s time for some grand children to hear it!!

    I loved that book too, though it was my sis who was horse crazy. We also had Stormy, Misty’s foal. I remember struggling to understand that there could be such difference in America! It sounded so foreign!

      Stormy,Misty’s foal is good ,too. ๐Ÿ™‚ Sometimes I still have a hard time wrapping it around my brain that while we here in the south are wearing flip flops the northerners are shoveling snow .

    I loved reading some of the pages and ‘clothespin bag’ which we would call a ‘peg bag or basket’ Glad you are nearly at the end of the tunnel ๐Ÿ™‚ Lovely day lily, just waiting for some of mine to start flowering ๐Ÿ™‚

      Good to know what a peg bag is,other wise if someone would tell me to go get the peg bag ,I would look at them with a blank look.๐Ÿ™‚ the day lilies are really blooming right now, the blooming time is way to short.

    Misty was one of my favorites, along with any horse book I could find. I looked at the date on your book and knew I read it long before that, as I was a teen in the 70’s. It was first published in 1947 and really makes one think about all the kids that have read it. It is a classic that has lasted many years.
