Yesterday old, Today brand new


This morning I had some time by myself
I drove to my parents local charity shop
hoping on some good bargains.

yesterday's old stuff is
today's lucky find!






I am slowly becoming obsessed by old children's books
I miss 'on every corner a book stall England'.
If I knew that they were so hard to find today in The Netherlands
I would have bought many many more in the past.....
Don't we all just love the drawings of Freddie Langeler?





It's about time
to know about the clock
for Kiefer.





Simply could not resist....





Being Dutch equals eating Ontbijtkoek
This suits my bread tin and cookie jar!
(I think we can talk about a little collection now :-)






Boy o Boy
I wish you could see these big vases in real life.
They are stunning!
Perfect orange,
perfect mustard,
lovely design


I am lucky
thank you
for recycling!

These are treasures. 10 years ago, I bought an old book, a book I had in school, to learn French. I'ld keep it in a safe if I could ;)

Treaures is right!! Love the books and the bread tin especially!! I really miss bookstores too, Madison had so many and every turn in the U.K too, not many at all here!!

echt maf!
ik kocht vandaag het boek "jantje in bloembollenland", eveneens geïllustreerd door Freddie Langeler, in onze kringloopwinkel!
het boekje valt bijna uiteen, maar de prenten zijn nog steeds fantastisch*
veel plezier met jouw vondsten!

Guusje zei

I'm so lucky that my mum saved all of my best-loved children's books in the attic. Most of them are from a bit older, so we haven't brought them out yet for Q, but oh will I be happy to see them again in the original editions!! You have some wonderful pieces here!
