My blog is nearing it's two year mark - and all of a sudden I've got 200 followers - as I did last year, I plan to have a draw for my blogiversary, but first I'm having a mini pre-blogiversary draw to celebrate the milestone 200 followers. It pays to enter, I just won two draws in the past 24 hours!! Just comment either here or on my Facebook page - you can "like" me and comment there as well - if you're lucky, these vintage cookbooks could be arriving in your mailbox. The draw will be made on Wednesday night at 9 pm. Keep watching - my two year draw will be coming up soon....
The prizes are - Betty Crocker's Cookbook for Boys & Girls, it is a hardcover book, copyright 1975 and two soft cover books - 250 Ways to Serve Fresh Vegetables, copyright 1949, the other book is Good Housekeeping's Book of Salads, copyright 1958. I found all of these books last week at the same shop.

A bounty of vegetables
I was happy to find an old Golden Book for my collection and a Christmas one is even better - I got out my trusty Little Golden Book Identification Guide - it's a first edition.. Howdy Doody and Santa Claus...
Golden Book #237 - copyright 1955, the spine is in rough shape, but the pages are not torn and have no markings at all. I paid 50 cents.

The book belonged to Lisa Hammond
I don't remember much about Howdy Doody but I did have a pack of cards with the Howdy Doody gang on them.
This is a cute one too, it was printed in 1973 and sold for 39 cents
