Old books

Every now and then my grandfather gives me one of the old books he got from an uncle who had an extensive library a long time ago. All those books are so well kept they almost seem to be new. I like this one which is a 1931 Macmillan edition, "Thy Servant a Dog" by Rudyard Kipling. The illustrations by G. L. Stampa are just great. And this book smells so good. I'll think I'll get some copies of the pictures and get them framed.  


  1. It may be a 'teeny weeny baby blog' but I can already tell I'm going to love it. :) Very peaceful, simple, and beautiful. Keep it up!

  2. Oh, and I love the name Annika! It was on our short list of girl names, but I had three boys!!
