You sweet little book. Can I take you home?

At a weekend antique show, 
I spotted this charming vintage child's book.
My heart went pitter patter.  It was aqua and it was old.
I became quite smitten.

But, I couldn't find the price. 
Sometimes at shows, items that seem quite ordinary are priced quite high.
I figured this was the case with this delightful find.

 I picked it up anyway.  I didn't want to go back and find it gone.
The illustrations were just so sweet.



 I took it up the check out counter and asked it's price.
And it turns out that the surprise was twice as nice. 
{five dollars.}

 Sold!  To the lady who loves old stuff.
It's a collection of stories from Child Life magazine.

How darling will this be in a mantel motif?
Or tucked into a vintage baby gift basket?
Or scrapbooking.

(the teacher with the bat cracks me up.)

xo jeanne.
