Bobsey Twins & Amish

Home today as it is "Mechanic's Picnic Day"... ok, ok, I'm not a mechanic, but I am the secretary at a mechanical workshop!
So, I slept in, then did the washing of the linen, cooked a vegetable & bacon quiche and cut out 2 pairs of size 2 pyjamas for a birthday present in a few weeks, plus.......
 I have started cleaning out my cupboards for my big move and I came across this set of books I bought from an Antique Shop while I was in the States last year.

It is the first 12 books in the "Bobbsey Twins" series by Laura Lee Hope.  I don't think they were read that much here in Australia, but I could be wrong, as I was not a reader when I was young, only started reading later in life.   Has anyone read these books?

...... talking of my trip to the States, I bought the 2 Amish dolls a couple of visits ago, and the last time I found this "Nancy Noel" print of an Amish girl against a quilt.  They are on permanent display in my dining room.

Must go and sew up the pyjamas.

Until next post...




  1. No have never read those books...
    Your amish dolls are cute.
    Hope you got to stitch up your PJ's.

  2. I LOVED those books when I was little! My Mom read them when she was a girl, passed her collection on to me when I started to read, and I added on to it- I must have about 50 Bobsey twin books- they were the greatest! I would read a book a day at times- just couldn't put them down :-) ( sadly my kids won't read them though.... I guess we've hit the Harry Potter era)
