Et Encore

I love old dictionaries, especially French ones.

I buy them to cut up for mailart and collage but often I can't bring myself to do it.

Cursive writing chart.
The French take their penmanship very seriously.

The illustrations are wonderful.

More Words
These are in French
Mais oui


  1. I would have trouble cutting these up too, but at the same time, people get to see the images then.

  2. Christine, I have managed to find quite a few of them so I have cut one up and had fun using the pages for various projects.

  3. I just reponded the postcard you sent me. I used a brown card, so I hope that work for the post office with all their marking they put on stuff.

  4. I had six years of French, and two exams, and the only thing I remember is how to say "The sink is broken, please fix it." Ha!

  5. I can say "There is parking in back" and "It doesn't work".....very helpful when traveling....also oui and oohlala....that gets me further....

  6. I totally agree. I have an older Petit Larousse and Bon Usage. It is tough to cut one but I know I "must."

  7. This makes me want to go to France & rummage around in search of goodies like this...

  8. Love the dictionaries, thanks for sharing.
