Just being ME

Please say hello ... I love comments!


cowboys but no custard ...

This post is for Michele at Cowboys & Custard, as she loves childhood nostalgia. I love this little pop up Tuck Book of Annie Get Your Gun, seen through the eyes of a child, adapted from the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Technicolour Production, published by Raphael Tuck & Sons Ltd. I was lucky enough to find this at a jumble sale many moons ago.

Recently I discovered Michele is expertly trained as a bookbinder, a strange coincidence that this binding is coming apart Michele!

The musical film in 1950, played Betty Hutton and Howard Keel in the starring roles. The screen play was by Sidney Sheldon based on the musical play, with music and lyrics by Irving Berlin.

Oh Louise what a treat... I have just come home to catch up with my blog friends and this is such a gorgeous vision of nostalgia...
If you want me to repair it I will do so happily...
I haven't completely forgotten my bookbinding skills.. maybe best left alone though..
Thanks for this... made my day!!!
