At the weekend I climbed into the attic on the hunt for some Miss Read books - I had read about them on someones post (can't remember who - sorry!). It inspired me to get mine out and read them again. Unfortunately I didn't unearth any amongst all the clutter - however I did discover some treasures which quite frankly I had forgotten about!
The first is a sweet vintage sewing machine called Little Betty, in it's original box with all the tools - and it works! One to have out on display I think.
The second were some Enid Blyton books, I thought all of mine had disappeared over the years so to find some bought squeals of delight. Goodness knows what the rest of the family were thinking! I have recently been trying to build up another collection of Enid Blyton books so these can be added into the mix.
The other set of books I found were these sweet children's stories. I can't remember who or when they were bought, but nevertheless a true delight. The pictures are just fab.
It just goes to show what 10 minutes in an attic can unearth. Who needs car boot sales (well some of the time!). Hopefully the next time I go up there I might find some Fisher Price goodies - I doubt it, but I can live in hope!
