PRESENT FOR MY DEAR BOY'S FIRST BIRTHDAY!

Child's 2.5 inch mug For My Dear Boy, ca. 1820/What is the dog doing to the preacher?

Liam is one today.  I wrote about his birth in Present For My Dear Boy, where I showed some children's patterns intended as gifts for loved boys (Christening, doing well in school, good behavior and just because).   Here are some more patterns.  All are from the first half of the 19th century.

Child's 2 inch mug Present For My Dear Boy/A fox carrying off a goose by its neck is to me an inappropriate pattern for children!

  1. Oh, how we love our boys! I was lucky enough to find another "Francis" recently.

  2. I would love to find a "Liam". I shall have to make do with "William," but it is not the same thing. Oh well.
