Another Print By "Pati"

I came across another charming print from 1967, with artwork by "Pati":
 "How To Preserve Children" - it's really the sweetest thing.....
 So cute!
(I showed you the other print I found, "Garnishes" back in July.)
 Somebody took very good care of this vintage framed print.
To preserve children, you must:
"Take one large grassy field, one-half dozen children, three small dogs, on a long narrow strip of brook, pebbly if possible.
Mix children with dogs and empty into the field, stirring constantly.
Sprinkle with daisies and buttercups.
 Cover all with a deep blue sky
and bake in warm sun for several hours.
When the children are thoroughly browned they may be removed.
They will then be found right and tender enough for setting away
to cool in a bath tub full of bubbles."

Ah, if only it were that simple.........
Pati, you do beautiful work.

The thing is, it really is that simple, I think it is a case of "too many cooks spoil the broth"... and also I don't think you need to "stir constantly", it is kind of like yeast, it bubbles and mixes and rises on its own, just massage it a bit when you "knead" to. LOL. Love T
