Our vintage find...






The little vintage books that we discovered at the fair on Saturday...they have been read and reread by this curious little boy. I found him on the sofa this afternoon as I pottered about the house, he looked like a little old man. Reading and lounging about with little basket filled with books. x

The first section I go for in op shops are the kids books. We have some great classics that way! My little ones do the same thing when coming home from the library - keeps them occupied for hours, even when they can't read. Now the eldest can read - she is raptured for hours. So special
