It's a beautiful sunny spring day here in Adelaide and the sunshine inspired me this morning to get out and walk. Of course, a walk is even better if it has a destination, and what better motivation to have to exercise than to be aiming for a local and as yet unexplored op shop!
With my daughter loaded into the pram and many a healthy snack on board, we trundle off and I'm proud to say the round trip was 5.6km's. Wowser! But it gets better.
Look at what we found at the lovely op shop at the half way mark of our trip:
I don't know why I have such an interest and love for vintage children's books, particularly those from the 1950's and 1960's, as I grew up in the 1970's. But these are such fabulous examples. I particularly love 'The Party' which is a Ladybird book which you may remember from your childhood. The 'Bedtime Stories' book has great illustrations that I may frame for my daughter's room. And they were all such very good prices that I gave the lady a little extra out of conscience!
The other thing I'm going to start today is my first block for my new quilt, The Little Bluebirds quilt by Janelle Wind. I received my first pack in the mail yesterday from the very helpful Sarah of Quilt Fabric Delights. Photos tomorrow of my progress. I'm off to sit out in the sunshine and get started. Ah.... spring. Makes me happy.
