Feel like a child

Today I want to show you some very cute pop up books that I bought. I feel like a little child when I look at them. I think any child would really enjoy these books. Here are some pages from the books. They have so many pockets of tiny pop ups which is a joy to open and look.




This cute little nursery rhyme book I found in a charity shop. I love the illustrations in it.  A lot of inspirations for dolls I think 😀

  2. Hi Shashi, they are truly lovely. I’ve got the wonderful Wizard of Oz (same version as you). I like the look of the Alice one, so I'm going to keep a look out for that.
    Does it say who illustrated the nursery rhyme book? The front cover and the last image look like they could have been done by Janet & Anne Grahame Johnstone, not sure about the soldiers it looks very different to me.

  4. wow, enjoyed seeing these. It reminds of about six to seven years ago i would buy childrens books at thrift stores because i loved the illustrations. My book collection of those filled four shelves on a bookcase about 7 feet tall and at least 4 feet wide. When we sold our house I sadly carted them all off to a thrift store because "in the moment" I wanted to start new - declutter everything ...i gave away all my other books too except for my self help and metaphysical type books. Could kick myself once in awhile when I want some inspiration from kids books. Really enjoyed this post.

    1. I can understand about collecting kids books for inspiration. I wish I had mine too which I had to leave back home when I got married. Mum gave them all away. I was so sad. I don't have many books here as in the UK the houses are pretty small compared to the US . So there isn't much storing space. I have de cluttered my doll magazines which I collected when I was learning to make them. I do buy children's books every now and then especially the ones that remind me of my old books and the ones that give inspiration but not many.
