Learn A Mid-Century Lesson- 1950’s Children’s Textbook Giveaway!

Hey everyone! I was out thrifting the other day when I picked up a copy of the cute vintage textbook, Macmillan Science Life 2.  Now, most of you have been laughing along with the lessons I have been featuring out of Health, Science, Life 1, so I thought this fun book would be a great giveaway!

And this serves two purposes.  One, I get to treat a lucky reader to a fun book.  Two, we get to have a belated celebration of my one year blogiversary! That’s right, I have been typing away for over a year now, and so far people are still hanging around reading it.  Thanks, guys.  I love all the friends I have made online and all the great support you guys give.

Ok, to make this giveaway easy on everyone, it will be real simple.  Leave a comment, and you will be entered in the giveaway.  If you want to be entered a second time, blog about the giveaway or put it on Facebook or Twitter. Then come back and leave another comment about it with a link or tell us where to find it, and you will be entered again!  The max number of entries per person is three. Next Thursday, March 11th at midnight I will use Random.org to pick a winner. Pretty simple, huh?

Oh, and here is a sneak peek of the book you are trying to win:

I love this book!  It is almost brand new, I go so excited when I found it.  It has excellent illustrations, too, and most of the people even have eyes.  What a bargain!

So, have fun guys, and the winner will be announced next Friday, March 12th!  Good Luck! 

“Oh my God, have you heard about the giveaway at No Pattern Required?”

“A giveaway, shut up! I love that blog!”

“No, you shut up!”


“All you kids shut up! I’ve got to get online and enter!”

    Happy Anniversary!!
    i’m from hong kong and i have been stalking your blog for a while,

    i have tried some of the mid-century recipe you post and i love it very,very much,
    like the chocolate fudge pudding,
    the recipe can leave out the butter for rubbing the pan,
    i try it few times with no butter at all and it still easy to clean.

    please keep on the good work,
    it’s fun reading your blog and i really enjoy it ^^
