Lil' Vintage Story Books Link Party

One of my favorite Etsy artists is Elizabeth Holcombe. Not only do I love her amazing one-of-a-kind pin cushions, but she has several etsy stores.

Lately, I'm addicted to her Dime Store Chic for vintage goodies. Recently, I purchased this 1955 children' s cookbook from her.

The illustrations throughout the cookbook are just darling.

Even the graphics on the inside book jacket are lovely.

Have a lovely weekend.
Happy Thrifting!
Happy Crafting!
I'll be busy packing up Halloween decor.

XOXO

I love Elizabeth's pincushions too! She always seems to find the cutest little figurines in her creations. Love that sweet cookbook too. It looks like it would be a fun way to teach kids how to cook!

The cookbook is very sweet. We used to have a children's cookbook ... I wonder which one of my sisters has that now?

What a darling cookbook. I remember making cinnamon toast on winter afternoons after school. I haven't had it for years, but it was so delicious - I want some now!
