Lovely shops and books

One of the shops I love and find so inspirational is The Cherry Tree it is truly beautiful and well worth a look around.

Thankyou so much to Sara who kindly agreed for me to take some photographs in her delightful shop

Like so many of you I love Ladybird books, I love their charm and wonderful stories.
I purchased these little beauties a couple of days ago from the most delightful Charity shop. I am so excited and can't wait to get decorating the children's new bedrooms, I am sure they shall look so sweet what with their little round windows and sloping eaves. I love seeing all their beautiful old books up on the shelves and sometimes when I need a pick me up, often go into their bedroom and read one of their delightful books to cheer me up, I love them.
