I have been searching and searching for these for over a year. I had to find just the right one! And to find BOTH of them on my trip was OUTSTANDING! Coralie from A Vintage Cottage Home (LOVE her blog! Go visit her. It is just wonderful!) had posted an old picture of her siblings reading this book and I just had to dig mine out of where I have them safely packed away for the trip home to share them with all of you!
The few pictures that are in it are outstanding!
I found them at two different antique stores. When I found the Little Men,
I swear the entire store must've thought I found a gold mine! I was so excited.
When I took it up to the counter, the gal looked at it
and said "What's Little Men?"
"You've never read Little Men?"
"Never heard of it."
(And this woman works in an Antique Store???? HELLO!!!!!!)
"It's a continuation of Little Women. It's all about Jo's boys."
Sooooo happy to have found those.
Then I found my NUMBER ONE SEARCH FOR book. WHOOHOOOO!!!!
It is gorgeous. Of course I no more found this when Joy called
me from a podunk antique store in Montana and says,
"I found your Heidi and your Five Little Peppers!"
She'll give them tome when we get home.
Doesn't this look fun? Full of all kinds of Hospitality tricks
and good old-fashioned recipes!
I can't wait to read this one!
Found these two cute doll books
And some wonderful old post cards. I would buy them all
if I could afford to. I just love the vintage cards!
I must've bought 2 dozen of them on this trip. YAY!
I couldn't resist this little girl. Doesn't she look just happy as can be?
Well that's it for now. Today is our last day of vacation. We are taking the boys into Durango to go plane-gliding (very fun! We did it last summer when we were here) and to roam the streets and shops. Then early tomorrow we are on the road for home. We'll get home Sunday night. I'm ready. The walls are just starting to close in on me in this coach. I'm ready to sleep in a king size bed again, and have my own washer and dryer at my disposal. :)
Have a great weekend everyone!
