I adore making new book bloggy friends. Recently, I made the acquaintance of Silvia, from Books Complicity. In addition to her website, Silvia has an Etsy shop filled with some VERY COOL vintage treasures, that I must share with you!
'Betsy-Tacy' with the original Lois Lenski illustrations. !!!!!!!!!!!!!
'Herbert Binns & The Flying Tricycle' looks A-MAY-ZING. $6!
'Sloth's Birthday Party', has other books available! Don't bother buying 'The Thief in the Botanical Gardens', my friendsies, because I'm going to get it.
'I'm Terrific' by Marjorie Weinman Sharmat (author of 'Nate the Great') looks adorable and the title? I pretty much strive to live by that motto, and repeat it to myself EVERY DAY.
'It's Always Breakfast Time Somewhere' is a paperback booklet, with a good amount of text and fabulous rero-y pictures that detail the breakfast routines and foods from around the world. I want this one too!
I love love love that there are such vintage book treasures to be found! Julia and I were in a used book shop the other day and I was worried that she would be bored, but she loved hanging out in this dusty, not very well organized, crammed with books in every nook and cranny space. She told me she loves "old book smell". I love old book smell! (NOT the same thing as mold smell, thank-you-very-much.)
