Alphabe Thursday W is for lots of things!

October 24, 2013

If only I had come across this little book 2 years ago I could have saved many prayers to the alphabet fairy on Wednesdays when frantically thinking about my post to Alphabe Thursday each week!

So I can use several little engravings for W is for wagon, windmill, whip, watermill, wheel, and more.

Ellenor Fenn (1743–1813) (née Frere) who often used the pseudonym Mrs Lovechild or Mrs Teachwell  was a prolific 18th-century writer of children’s books.

This is book called Mrs Lovechild’s book written in 1924 is designed to teach children the ‘names of things’ … almost 300 years later I am not sure children today would recognize many of them
