Vintage inspiration...

I found this wonderful vintage paint book from 1930 at an estate sale this weekend. I wanted to share with you the charming illustrations. Not all the pages are photographed, so the story is choppy. It's about a little girl going on a hunt for her missing puppy. I thought you'd enjoy the vintage beauty.

Oh, my gosh, Kari,
Those are the kind of illustrations I just love. This is the second weekend I have missed Estate Sales and again you made a major score! So very cute!

Hi Kari, Very cute post!!! Anyways, I’m emailing from Duluth, looking for a bit of info on Silver Bella. Teresa MacFayden sent me your way!!! I previously sent an email but I’m thinking it didn’t go through. If possible can you send me one back so you can fill me in on your fun experience? I’d like to consider going next year. I’m at Tjohnson7@smdc.org
Thanks kindly Kari, and I hope you have a great day, Tricia

That is beautiful! I've been doing some drawings lately that are similar. Thank you for the inspiration. I'll have to look for the book myself!
