I purchased a couple of cool, vintage sewing books from Folksy recently. One is from the 1950's and the other from the early 1970's.
I've also rediscovered some of my old childhood books...
... an Esmeralda annual (from before I was born so must be a hand-me-down) & a couple of Twinkle annuals - I used to LOVE those as a little girl
I don't know if you've every seen Camberwick Green or Trumpton (or even Chigley), but they were stop-animation from the 70's which we all LOVED - in fact I have them all on DVD :)
and of course the requisite Ladybird books (I have some more somewhere in the loft)
It's been so much fun re-reading these, they may all be for children, but they're still enjoyable. I have so many favourite childhood books in the loft, I really must try to get them out sometime. I remember a wonderfully illustrated fairytale book, a book about a Boggitt (?) and many more.
Do you have any favourite childhood books? x
