Madeline Would Recommend . . .

Back in August I posted an entry about Madeline's grandmother Annie's school autograph book.  (You can revisit it here.)  Recently my friend Susan from "A Sip of Sarsaparilla" posted an entry on her blog about a similar old school autograph book.  Go over to her blog right now and check it out!  And while you're there take some time to enjoy all the vintage goodies that she discovers.  Madeline would approve.


  1. I checked the entry of Lady Sarsaparilla and thought it was a shame to get rid of that block for autographs. I just found your blog and love it.

  2. Oh Ann, you're such a sweetie! As Rosy said, it was probably silly of me to sell such a lovely book - but I had it for months, and got my enjoyment out of it. The new owner wrote me to tell me she loves the book - so I'm happy about that!
