Happy Monday Everyone!!

Well, if you read my previous post, then you would know I was um.... slightly stressed out over something last week, but I am happy to is over!! Yay! I can rest easy now and focus on more important things, like YOU, of course!

The Penny Saver sent me a lovely little 20% off coupon for my favorite thrift store last week, so of course I had to go before it expired! 

So there I was... wandering around... all bummed out... because I couldn't find anything worthwhile (wah!!), I mean, even my husband had something in the cart, and that rarely happens! 

Then, I saw them! Little vintage children's books! Yes!! They were in a bag, so it was kinda hard to see, but I knew 2 were Little Golden Books, one was a nothing book (poor little's not it's fault), and I could not see the little one in the I was very excited when I got it home and it turned out to be a Junior Elf book!! It's very little (4x6") and very sweet and I love it! 
I hope you do too.....

Children always scribble on the faces! Personally, I think it's sweet...Oh look Mummy, a baby kangaroo...I shall color on his wee little face!.. That's my English accent in case you were wondering...don't ask me to do it in real life!

I love this little favorite toy as a child was Dumbo, my great-gramma knitted (knit?) him for me when I was 4 years daughter has him now, but he will always be my Dumbo!

Here is the whole sweet gang together:

Hope you have a Marvelous Monday!!
