A Sweet Vintage Illustration

Happy Sunday, everyone!
I hope you are all having a nice weekend.
Today we are sharing another illustration from our vintage children's book.


This little girl's dress and bonnet are just the cutest.  I had a red and white polka dot
dress when I was little. 
May your day bring happy memories!

Could that red and white fabric be dotted swiss. I LOVE dotted swiss and which I there was a resurgence of it somehow today so a 55 year old lady could relive that wonderful feel of that fabric! Wish I could find linen childrens books. I have my eye out at auctions for them but just don't seem to find them. Will let you know if I am lucky enough to get a dotted swiss blouse AND a linen childrens book someday! Have a great Sunday. deb

Looks like play time to me. I like the little guy blowing his whistle. I can almost hear it. Talent show over on the Piccadilly. I hope the two of you come back and join in the give aways I have, you never know what Gnome may end up at your home.

You are definitely the Queen of Vintage. That picture is just way too cute. I love the bonnet and sweet dress. That sailor suit is so funny. I don't know why it makes me laugh but it does.

Enjoy...

Are these not the best books? After I saw your last cute post I went on Ebay and bought two of her books! Number Rhymes and Nursery Rhymes....Florence Salter was an incredible illustrator! Right up our alley, don't you think????
The books were a little pricey, but perfect! And seeing as how they are from 1939 and 1941 it seemed a steal to me!!!!! Love the linen pages! Thanks for sharing and reminding me I had to get these! LOL

Kathleen said...

Adorable. Any tips on how to organize all those little pieces of paper, trims, die cuts, collage pieces etc.? I feel just overwhelmed. Thanks, Hugs, Kathleen

Cheryl said...

Love the little red dress also. My mom made all my clothes when younger and I think I had one just like it.

Now wouldn't I just love a dress and bonnet like that!!

The baby dress in my cedar chest is red and white stripe. That must have been the color back then a long time ago. Thank you for the memories. Have a wonderful week.
