Do you have a weakness for......


vintage children's books? I must admit to being a "junkie" for years! Nothing can beat the colors or the sweetness of the stories
Little Bitty Raindrop is my fave! It's hard to explain how cute this story is...the travels of a baby raindrop...
I love the endpapers in these little books, they're just adorable!
Look at the beautiful face on this raindrop, what a fabulous artist who drew this.
This little book also has charming artwork inside....
Lucky getting in trouble :(
What's your favorite vintage children's book?

Oh yes! I love vintage children's books! The stories and illustrations are so much sweeter and more charming than most are these days.

Yes, yes I do have a weakness for childrens books
my fav is The Fire Cat.
Pickles the fire cat. Every time I find a vintage copy I buy it.
I can't help it, it was my fav as a kid and still is today.

I almost bought the little raindrop book last weekend. Had it in my hand and paged through it and then for some reason didn't get it. Adorable illustrations tho!

They did make the sweetest little children's books! I just wish I had more room in which to store them.
Have a great week-end!

I do, I do, love vintage children's books. Some that I collect are the little prayer books. The children's faces are so sweet.
