Hereby presenting an excerpt from Rhymes for the Young Folk (1887) by William Allingham. It tells the story of today’s Free Friday Vintage Coloring Page which is an illustration by Helen Allingham.

“Up the airy mountain,
Down the rushy glen,
We daren’t go a-hunting
For fear of little men;
Wee folk, good folk,
Trooping all together;
Green jacket, red cap,
And white owl’s feather!”

Hereby presenting an excerpt from Birds from Moidart and Elsewhere (1895) by Mrs. Hugh Blackburn who also drew all of the illustrations. It tells the story of today’s Free Friday Vintage Coloring Page.

“One summer (at Doonholm, in Ayrshire) a Robin built its nest in one of the drawing-room curtains, inside where it is looped up. The curtains had to be pushed back every evening to allow the shutters to be shut, but it did not mind that. It reared and took away, I think, six young ones. The next year it built its nest in the footman’s hat in the pantry, but, unfortunately, the pantry had to be painted, and the hat was hung outside the window, and it deserted. Several Robins used to live in the house in winter; they were very tame, and used to sit on the clock on the drawing-room chimneypiece and sing. One of them used always to put itself to bed on the top of the canopy of the bed in one of the spare rooms.”
