Vintage Thingies Thursday & Tender Graces...
It's time for me to take a break from my Spring cleaning and join in on Vintage Thingies Thursday. VTT is hosted by the ever gracious Suzanne @ Colorado Lady. Be sure to pay her a visit, say "Hi!" and see who else is doing it VINTAGE today.
Books have always been a key part of my life and my enjoyment. I love to escape into lands far away, the adventures and romance drive me to "dream" and give me the "break" I need to make it through anything stressful that may come my way.
Allow me to share my Colliers Junior Classics and my New Junior Classics, Series One and Two (circa 1962-). One is a complete set and the other I'm missing the first volume. I'm actually "watching" an auction on Ebay right now to see if I can "win" volume I :0)
(There is a book on the far right that doesn't belong in the series but it fits perfectly to keep the books "straight & neat". Good for their spines.
One of my all time favorite stories...
Look at the "artwork". I dare not call them simple illustrations because in my honest opinion, they are far more then that.
Here's wishing you a wonderful VTT.
My friend Faye @ Something Nanna Made shared a bit of information about a free conferance on Autism. Many children are afflicted with this illness and I'm happy to share what Faye has written. Please visit Faye and read her posts about Sweet Noah who will touch your heart, about his mom Amy who is amazing and about big brother Luke and how he all ready knows Noah is something special.
God Bless them all.
