This is a little corner of my home...
This shelving unit was a present, made by my lovely husband many years ago. I have been storing my children's vintage books collection here, but now it looks like this...
The bottom shelf now is home to Daisy's paints and painting equipment. Underneath you will see the boxes containing her other craft materials. The top of the shelving unit is home to Great Uncle Bulgaria...he's a Womble that I picked up at the Carboot sale a couple of years ago. The ladybird book collection are staying because we actually read these to Daisy. I intend to do a separate blog post about these. The other books are being packed away into the loft, but I thought I'd share them with you first...
This is my Famous Five collection. I have all of them but three. Some of them are really old and some are the more modern versions (1990s). My favourites are the ones to accompany the tv series that I absolutely loved! I have the DVD too. If you don't know of the famous five, they (Julian, Dick and Anne, George and Timmy the dog) go on lots of adventures eating potted meat sandwiches washed down with lashings of ginger beer! They were created by Enid Blyton, my favourite author as a child.
Once again, Enid Blyton...with Noddy, The Three Gollys and naughty Amelia Jane. I didn't want to offend anyone with the correct title of the middle book so I hid it...Enid Blyton was not very PC !
Sally Stawberry is from the Munch Bunch. Does anyone remember these? This was actually my husband's book.
These Beatrix Potter books are old but I'm not sure how old because I couldn't find a date of print on them. They were childhood books and sadly I don't know what happened to the rest. Daisy has a huge collection box of Beatrix potter books so these can be put away.
The wonderful Mr Men! These vary in age and price given on the back. I loved these as a child and still do! Daisy has a big box collection of all these too and we have read them all! Most of these were mine from the 1970s, but some belong to my husband too.
I love children's books!
