Pretty Old Books

This weekend, I took some time to go through boxes of old childhood belongings. Of course there were toys and clothes and other keepsakes, but some of my favorite finds were my old books. I just loved looking through them at the pictures and appreciating the unique art in each of them.

  1. Eeee, love this!!! My MIL has a blog and recently interviewed a woman in England who collects and sells old children's books and series'. It's amazing. So many of them are vintage!!! She travels ALL over to find them. :D

  5. Wow, you have Star Wars ones? I didn't start reading Sci-Fi until I was in high school, but I wish I would have started much younger. Cool!

  6. We've always teased my mom about hanging onto every single book of ours, but now I'm glad she did because it makes me so happy to be able to pass them on to my daughter. I had a bunch of Madeline videos on VHS; she and that douchebag Pepito were awesooooome.
