I promised to show you the game board to the Pollyanna game...
Pollyanna...The Glad Game was made by Parker Brothers, Inc. and patented in 1915.
Pollyanna was a novel written in 1913 by Eleanor Porter. The gist of the story is that a young girl named Pollyanna lived her life optimistically....always looking for the good side of things no matter what trouble came her way.
I love the colorful graphics of old board games...
This old Parcheesi game board was made in 1938.
And this? Well, this is just something I found on the ground. I do not know what it is from... Maybe you know?
I love old iron and have a few ideas on how to use it floating around in my head... What would you do with it?
This week is flying by... ...it is almost the weekend again!
My Mom and Dad will be arriving on Saturday and I am so happy to be able to spend Father's Day with them! How do you plan to celebrate?
To live content with small means.... To seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion.... To be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich.... To study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly.... To listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart.... To bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never.... In a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common.... ...........this is to be my symphony.
Thank you to all the kindred spirits and kind souls who take the time to leave a comment......Your support and encouragement are deeply appreciated.....I read each and every message and as time allows, do my best to reply.
