You really need to send me the list of your Jr Elf books. I have a stash that are yours for the asking! I'm a Little Golden Book collector and I'm trying to hold myself in check, only one book obsession!

What sweet illustrations. I am curious, how do you display your collection? It seems like you must have dozens (hundreds??).

I think I have this book in my collection...look how cute those kids are and that little chubby pig knitting. :) I've always adored the vintage illustrations/graphics...rarely do I find a modern children's book today with the same sweet charm.

Something Special said...

I am so happy to have found your darling blog here. I love this era. I was happy to see all the iron on transfer sheets and happy to know that you can still get those. I have a few old ones, but this is great. I love to sew too!

The illustrations in this book are so adorable! Where do you find your books? I have looked in area thrift stores but to no avail. I guess I need to spend more time looking at each book instead of just scanning the shelf! :)
I'd love to have a collection of vintage books like yours...I'm envious.
Oh, I checked out the Spring Needlebook Swap and have joined the group! This sounds like so much fun :)
