Presenting an excerpt from the story “Mother Holle” from Grimm’s Household Tales (1912) which tells the story of today’s Free Friday Vintage Coloring Page, an illustration by R. Anning Bell.

“She took care to do everything according to the old woman’s bidding, and every time she made the bed she shook it with all her might, so that the feathers flew about like so many snowflakes. The old woman was as good as her word; she never spoke angrily to her, and gave her roast and boiled meats every day.”

Presenting an excerpt from Book of Cats and Dogs, and Other Friends, for Little Folks (1894) by James Johnnot which tells the story of today’s Free Friday Vintage Coloring Page.

“Hey, diddle, diddle,
The cat and the fiddle,
The cow jumped over the moon;
The little dog laughed
To see the witch-craft,
the dish ran away with the spoon.”
