no. but i think i’ve seen ones that are just plain black stripes. that white part sounds too fancy.

Too fancy would be pink trim around the top.

I’m leaving this link in an old post (not a naked ladies link).If you have a collection of those children’s Find-The-Hidden-Pictures-type picture puzzles (like from Highlights Magazine), you can add to it. Many are now downloadable from the Internet (without any scraggly crayon circles around the hidden pictures).Highlights Magazine for Teachers has a page of their PDFs here:http://www.highlightsteachers.com/teachers-toolbox/hidden-picturesAnd I got a bunch of JPGs that people had scanned, cleaned-up, and saved (from vintage sources) through the freebie lady at About.com. She periodically posts links and links of sources, and usually posts them on holidays when she knows families will be getting together and kids will need to be kept busy.[BTW, I don’t usually teach kids; I’m an ESL teacher with a range of foreign students and adults. Giving these out in class on a special occasion (like International Children’s Day) is always a big hit. It seems they never lose their appeal after we grow up.]I hope this is a good addition to your resources.

Oh, I forgot — An extremely resourceful person like you can turn these into placemats when you have guests (everyone gets a different picture). Just put a glass full of old crayons in the middle of the table and they’ll keep busy while you get the food ready.There was a bar in the East Village that went one step further: the tablecloths were actually white butcher paper, and every table got a couple of glasses full of (broken) crayons. People drew on the “tablecloth” while waiting for food, and (afterward) the best tablecloths got hung up and exhibited.

The freebie lady at About.com is Stacy Fisher:http://freebies.about.com/bio/Stacy-Fisher-60813.htm?nl=1She usually puts the puzzles under holidays.

I am in love with your keen eye and attention to detail – and am left thinking I am suffering from some partial form of alopecia after seeing these masses!
