Myrtle Turtle

I know...I know another Jr. Elf book but I love them so.  

The little broken flower tipped to make an umbrella.

More red and pencil drawings.

Cherub mouse and squirrel friends.

Dump truck rides...whee!

Airplane flights....Whoa!


Friendship dances in flower hats.

The back of the book is extra special. Someone took the time to put the picture of their favorite pet Pomeranian.  

Join me again for another week of Lil Vintage Story Books at Corey's.

Animal stories are always a favorite with me. Such sweet drawings. My favorite vendor saved a vintage time-telling party-themed book for me. I'll be all set for next Friday. Happy weekend!

beautiful doggie!!
Those books are so cute! I understand why you like them so much. I have a Christmas one put up somewhere. I will have to find it soon.
I had to laugh at Myrtle Turtle. That was the nickname of my sister's best friend in school. I never knew why!!Maybe I should call my sister to ask her if she knew! I haven't thought of that in years!

Oh, I always love books about animals doing "people" things-this one looks like no exception!

I still have my Myrtle Turtle! I loved it! And I forgot to tell you the other day that I also collect those Tiny Tale books! They are getting hard to find! And I loved your newest apron also! Sandie

I remember this cute little book. But I am not sure what happened to it. Yours looks great.

Such sweet little illustrations. Turtles have a special place in my heart. I used to have them as pets.

Happy Day Before Valentines, Renee!

I have that very book, and still love it so! My mom bought me several Tiny Tots when I was little, and I still have them. T and J have enjoyed them, too. Thanks for sharing this one...

The apron from the previous post is lovely. I bet you have another magazine feature coming up soon!
