It was sent to me by Sue of Vintage Rescue Squad.
Look: it was illustrated by Tasha Tudor! Now, I have to be honest with you. Unfortunately, before blog-land, I had never heard of Tasha Tudor or of her her work.
I learned a few interesting facts about her & was simply in awe of her life and her talent.
So, when I read that my blog sister Sue was giving this darling little book away... I couldn't believe it.
Just look at Tudors artwork! I can't image having such wonderful talent. In my search, I read that all of Tudors children are artists.
For my special book, I purchased "special" bookends from Eastside Antiques in Ft. Worth. (Thanks Gary!!)
The Doll's House is to be one of my summer reads. I envision my daughter & I reading this book together.
Sitting out on the back porch after dinner... with the sunset in front of us. The both of us with a cold glass of tea, sitting, reading together as the gentle breeze blows. Wouldn't that be wonderful???
Special thanks to Sue! If you are not familiar with Sue, check out her blog. She is hilarious and she is always posting about her wonderful yard/estate sales treasures. http://www.vintagerescue.typepad.com
