Vintage finds...

10 May 2013
















Hello! These are a few of our finds from the charity shops yesterday. I just loved the pretty covers on the little 'first' books and such sweet pictures inside too. The little blue feather book just had to come home for the same reason! Also a couple of vintage sheets and a duvet cover and I just couldn't resist the little picnic set - it has just two of everything inside so I thought it would be perfect for the kids to have picnics in the garden with.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend. x

  13. I just adore those images from the books, I really have a thing for vintage children's books and have an ever increasing collection of them, despite not have any kiddos to read them to! The pics in the bird book are right up my alley. The picnic set is adorable too. You did well on your shopping trip! x
