This book looks like it would be fantastic to look at and read…
It makes my day to see these old illustrations and its wonderful to conect back to childhood tales. Thankyou Elelphant!
I am glad it makes you happy to see my posts – that makes my day! I appreciate the feedback.
This is beautiful…I want to eventually decorate a nursery with boldly-colored vintage illustrations.
Well, when the time comes it should be easy to decorate with illustrations – lots of beautiful ones are out there. Glad you enjoy them.
