Vintage Nursery Rhyme Graphics

Hello friends!
Happy November!

To kick off the month of family & feasting, I'm sharing some beautiful graphics based on the children's nursery rhyme "One Two, Buckle My Shoe."  With images such as a turkey, a place setting, and a guest knocking on the door, these exquisitely detailed illustrations* are just begging to be worked in to your November craft projects.  Enjoy!

 *These illustrations are the work of artists Walter & Naiad Einsel from the 1963 book "Know Your Toes". The images contained in this post may be downloaded for non-commercial purposes only.


If you're a fan of the fun finds, foodie tomfoolery
and crafty shenanigans here at Rook No. 17, would
you take a few seconds to show your support with a
over at Babble?

  1. those are so cute, I'd never heard past 10 version, Years ago I had thought of putting that verse on my stairs...going up to the kids rooms, but alas they are all grown, now. And my husband thinks he wants a traditional house, but when I get something done he usually likes it, hee hee. Thanks for sharing the graphics!

  2. Oh I LOVE them! Thank you so much for sharing!

  3. These would be perfect for a coloring book!

    I've never heard of the rhyme past 10 either...

  4. These are awesome Jenn! So glad you shared them at this week's BFF Open House!
