Vintage Books

Books seem to of always been important to my family. In my 4th Great Grandfathers Will from 1809, a list of books is included, one of which was The History of Scotland.

I have my Grandparents and parents books they had as children, love reading the inscriptions from their parents or Grandparents. I still have all my little golden books too!

I still love holding a book in my hand and flipping through the pages, nothing can equal that for me for reading.

So how about a look at some of my Mom's books?
These are all so colorful and I love the graphics

As a child those guys peering out of the window scared me!

They would of been living in Detroit MI when she got this book. They moved back to Charleston in 1939 when Mom was 14, they could of easily left the books in Detroit...but they did not.

This would be a great picture to hang up in my Cottage, but I could never take the pages out, I am too much a purest!

This was my favorite one of my Mom's growing up...I thought Poppy was so cute.


She was found in a shoe






Thanks for looking through these books with me...hard to believe they are almost 80 years old!

Happy VTT

Your grandparents obviously had a love for reading, for books, and for their daughter... how lucky you are to have inherited all that. Thanks for sharing the beautiful books and a lovely story of family.

You are blessed! This is a great set of books your mother gave you. (Yes, I have a knack for stating the obvious - scary huh?). Enjoy your books.
