I thought I would continue the show offiness around here and share a few other things I found during a recent trip to a local thrift shop.
This book from the late 1960s is all about a little girl and her love of aprons. I can definitely relate with her. The big climax of the story is when she goes to visit her daddy at the printshop where he works and finds out that he wears an apron too. The fact that her dad is a typesetter charmed me to no end.
I simply adore this style! It is all of my favorite things: sixties, folksy, colorful and sweet. On the same trip, same shop I picked up this first ediition Dr. Seuss book.
It is missing its dust jacket, but the guy at the thrift shop gave it to me at no charge, so I really can't complain. Oh, and I also got an assortment of cloth napkins.
We are choosing to use cloth over paper whenever we can. Ok, maybe tomorrow I will post somehting other than my treasures (maybe).
