in her room . . .



we picked up an old
ladybird reader
from the chuck out pile
at our local library,
chopped it up
and blu-tacked it to the wall

: :

i'm half tempted
to move it to my own room...

  8. So cute but it's sad that I remember reading these when I was young. Does that make me vintage too?

  12. I love this! So bright and cheerful and vintage. I knew those darn borning readers would come in handy one day;) I think I might need to copy your idea if I find myself a ladybird reader. They'll probably be snapped up now, after seeing your post:)

  17. This is absolutely Brillant!!! I love vintage (esp. '50's & '60's) prints. I have a few in the form of little golden books - but a few of those I was given as a child and CAN'T chop up. You make me want to take a trip to my local thrifty. :)
