Christmas Memories

 

This is a quickie today because I am headed to the Sedgwick County Historical Museum, as part of the Smithsonian Museum Day celebration.  Quickly, it's time to join Wendy, our host this month at Art Journal Journey, with her Vintage theme.

In the late 1930s, Radio Flyer came out with a new wagon called the Radio Super.  

I'm sure these little girls who received this iconic cart would agree

that Christmas does hold many memories.

For this page, I started with an image from a Reminisce magazine to which I sewed (in red thread) the compute generated and colored sentiment.  As I said in the beginning, this is a real quickie.

Thank you beyond belief for visiting on this Saturday.  Bleubeard and I are delighted you dropped by and hope to see you soon at Art Journal Journey with your own take on Vintage.   If you live in the states, are you taking advantage of Smithsonian Museum Day in your area?  I realize the museum I'm visiting only charges $5.00 (USD) for adults, but free is even better!

I was 10 yrs old when we had a Christmas like that. No snow. I got a blue Raleigh bicycle with hand brakes! Have fun at the museum

That is a great vintage photo. I love the coats. I think I had something similar to the little girl in the wagon only in light blue when I was that age. And did you have a red radio flyer wagon. My brother and I got to share one, but he didn't like me pulling my stuffed toys and girl things in it. Smile. Hope you have fun at the museum and your new camera takes some great photos for us to see. Hugs-Erika

My sister and I were just talking about some clothes we had at that age, so it's fun to see your photo. Do you ever use your own family pics? That would be fun too.

You know I always love it when you create a tag with some sewing on it! Love the stitched caption.

Now that is something I have never seen in the UK but I once went to a fleamarket (cannot remember what the name was in the `USA) and I saw children sitting in one of these wagons being taken around with parents. The only other time I have seen them was at a German Christmas Market. What a fab idea - how I wish I had had one.
Thanks for bringing two pictures to my mind this evening elizabeth - and what a super page this is with its red stitching for AJJ and the vintage theme.
Hugs, Neet xxx

I remember when we wore scarves, girls and women alike. I wonder why that stopped being a thing.

It may be a real quickie, but it looks terrific and I love the words with that photo.

I hope you enjoyed your museum visit.
This is a fantastic vintage/retro style page the images do bring back memories. Those woollen scarves were so cosy to wear.
