Wouldn't ya like to wear these in the summer?  A new/old age equivalent to the sundress?


travelin' case

I ventured to the Wychwood Barns vintage market yesterday afternoon and accumulated a few lovely little treasures - this amazing old leather traveling case in mint condition with decal and keys to fit.  Also copious amounts of lace and ribbon on offer so I thought I'd show you some of the other little gems I picked up in a grab bag.


My Bookhouse

Thursday, April 7, 2011

Growing up we had a full collection of these My Bookhouse children's story books.  My mom and her sisters and brother grew up with them and they have been transferred down to all the cousins at various points over the past 20 years.  I think the collections lives in Ottawa now.   I stumbled upon Number 5 "From The Tower Window" in my ramblings and thought I'd pick it up for old time's sake.  This particular edition is  copywritten 1921.  I had forgotten how stunning the illustrations are.
