The Happy Family

Kim asked if I would share some of the pictures from the book that I talked about in my last post so here they are!! The book was written by Nicole (no last name) and pictures are by Corrine Malvern.

When Miss Bonnie finished reading the book she said, "the Mom wore the prettiest outfits." lol I agree, Miss Bonnie. Don't you just love the sweet and simple depiction of everyday family life back then?

So sweet! I agree with Chaos ... these pictures remind me so much of Dick and Jane. My children love to read those stories.

Love you fall decorating! Lovely!

I adore illustrations of that period; the intense color, the simplicity. And you're right, seems to be such a 'charming' era, doesn't it?
