I’ve posted before about how I love to decorate with old books. I have a special place in my heart though for old children’s books especially. I love the bright, but muted with time, colors and old-timey pictures. Over the weekend I stopped in at an estate sale that had tons of old children’s books for sale. I picked through the box and pulled out a few of my favorites.
Adding those to two bedtime storybooks I already had, I now have a nice little collection for sale in my space. I think The Shoe Book may be my favorite. I wonder if it originally had laces?
I love the Paper Doll book too. I remember playing with paper dolls when I was a little girl.
And lastly, I was excited to find a Mother Goose book in the pile. Check out the laced-up binding.
These would be great displayed on a shelf in a child’s nursery or even bigger kid room. Or, you could easily take out single pages and frame several of them in a row. And of course you can use them for their original purpose and read them to your children too!
A simple, low-cost way to add a unique touch to your child’s space.
