Vintage Slumber Party

Today is the Vintage Slumber Party being hosted by Phyllis over at "For the Love of Vintage"

What fun to be invited to a Slumber Party, I haven't been to one in years...many years. I'm sure there will be lots of delightful surprises in store.

I decide a nice bottle of Sparkling Pink Lemonade would be perfect and a Salmon Pate with some crackers. I also tore the recipe page out of my book and brought that along as well.

As I was leaving for the party, one of my dolls, little baby Stella wanted to come with me. As it was well past her bedtime I had to say no. She just couldn't stop yawning.Sleepy Doll

Last, but not least I have some party favours for everyone. If you would like any of these pictures just click and you can download a larger file on flickr.


I have this wonderful book published in 1944 called a Child's Prayer. Here is the prayer and two of the illustrations.

From another little book call "Prayers and Graces for a Small Child" this one is called Off to Sleep Off to Sleep

I hope you will be able to use some of these pictures and have enjoyed your stay. Please go to "For the love of Vintage" to visit with more of the guests.
