I truly adore the 40's and 50's for so many reasons, but the children's books during those eras bring such a happiness and warmth to my heart. Well, last week at a thrift store I came across this adorable 1946 Our Baby, The First Five Years book by The Whitman Publishing Company.
The graphics and colors are the sweetest! I love all the pretty flowers, especially the pink roses. How precious is that baby's face with those rosy cheeks and those cute baby fairies!
The book is in really good condition with only a few pages filled out.
A sweet baby born on February 13, 1952 with...
the most adorable little footprints.
So many cute pages are left to be filled with memories, first words, birthdays, holidays, and more.
These graphics would be sweet made into cards or other crafty goodness, too.
I have a dear friend who is expecting a baby in May, so I will have to see what I can create using some of these pages!
Do you have a special baby book that you have found treasure hunting or one of your own from childhood?
The pretty pink rose pot holder is finished! I love how it came out and can't wait to hang it up in my kitchen. I actually even have some hanging in my living room, because they are so pretty.
The next one I am set out to make is a yellow rose one, and I even bought some variegated yarn in pink, green, and yellow that I look forward to trying. I was thinking of having samples of different colors in my shoppe,(and eventually different patterns), and making them as custom orders, so that they could be customized to the colors in your kitchen or as a gift. So, I'll let you know once I get that up and figured out. ;)
Over the weekend I crocheted some mint and cream coasters using this lovely pattern. I had made some for gifts this Christmas, and wanted to make some for myself. They are simple and quick to make, and look adorable on the table.
Wishing you all a lovely and creative week!!
