vintage fun

paint by number

In 1950 the owner of the Palmer Paint Company asked employees for an idea for how to sell more paint and the paint-by-number kit was born.

Just one of the fun things (like playing cards, pick-up sticks, and dominoes) we used to do way back in the time before video games, computers, ipods, cell phones, you get the picture.

Speaking of the picture, I just finished my teddy bears and quilts paint-by-number I received for Christmas. It is still fun!

I remember those. However, I cannot remember actually doing one. Yours is lovely. And it even has a quilt in it!
