I made this little sketch yesterday afternoon. It was prompted by a purchase I made on Friday at a local flea market. I found a very old edition of a Nancy Drew book.
Nancy Drew and I were great friends when I was young. I remember checking out three Nancy Drew books at a time from our local library. I would read these books over and over until it was time to go back for more!
Reading the older versions required me looking up words occasionally. Words like “frock” and “roadster” and “pocketbook” and “veranda” were not in my daily vocabulary!!
But I will admit thinking I couldn’t wait to be 18 years old and get my own roadster and asking my dad for money to go buy new frocks!!
Today it’s chilly here so I’ll be hibernating in my studio. I’m not a fan of winter but I will admit I like hibernating ☺
