Ode to my favorite old books

Rummaging thru my old children's books the other day I found this old Love of mine. This book was given to me when I was 6 years old. I have always been enchanted by this book! I remember when I first got it, I wanted so badly to read all the words, but it was hard when my knowledge extended to only reading e.g="the-at-on-it-to-with-go"...words. So the pictures would keep me busy. And OH how they are BEAUTIFUL! I just Have to share this gorgeous book with you all! The illustrations are taken from old vintage paintings and sketches. LOVE it!

Goldie Locks and the 3 Bears
This page is part of the intro of the book.

Little Red Ridinghood

Puss In Boots
One of my favorites in this book

I just LOVE these silhouettes!
 Wouldn't it be cute to put these in a little girls room?

I love "Princess on the Pea"

The Golden Goose is always a favorite!

Sleeping Beauty

Jack the Giant Killer!

This Fairy Tale always captivated me!
The Twelve Dancing Princesses:-)

{if you hav'nt heard of it, it is written by the Danish fairy tale writer H.C. Andersen}

Beautiful Snow White
