Vintage Finds: Strawberry Shortcake

Strawberry Back

I found this cute Strawberry Shortcake book at a Goodwill.  We’ve had a pretty mild winter so far compared to some of the others we’ve had in recent years… but there is just enough snow on the ground right now to make this title seem appropriate.  Strawberry Shortcake and the Winter That Would Not End was written by Alexandra Wallner and illustrated by Mercedes Llimona.  It was published by Scholastic in 1982.

Vintage Finds: Holly Hobbie

I loved going to the library book sales when I was a kid (I still do!).  I was usually on the lookout for The Baby-Sitters Club books but I found a lot of other great books too!  One year I picked up The Adventures Of Holly Hobbie by Richard Dubelman and I have loved the character ever since then!

I found this vintage wrapping paper from American Greetings at one of my favorite antique stores.  I just love the pattern and colors on it!  There are two sheets in the package and it originally cost 25 cents.
