Tickled Pink

I found the cutest children's book this week on Etsy. (At Scrappy Jessi's shop to be exact) I've told you I have a weakness for children's books. Oh yeah, and a weakness for glass jars, craft supplies, and purses, but I digress...
I fell in love with the cover, but there was an even better surprise on the inside.
Dogs!
And more dogs! Heaven.
Who knew a few little 1960's illustrations, a smattering of pink, and a few furry canines could bring such joy?

For a list of other pink delights please visit the blog of our delightful hostess Beverly.
Happy Day!

So sweet! I'm a sucker for vintage! You might want to visit my Freebies page some time, as I have a few children's books on there. The illustrations are always so charming. Off to look at that Etsy shop right now...

Happy Pink Saturday!
