As far as inspiration goes this is a fairly simple source but I love vintage children's books. Children's books in general are fantastic and a huge part of my life. I take my kids to the library often and reading in general is a big deal in our home. The illustrations found in the old ones are an endless source of ideas for me. Here are a few of my favorites. Today sounds like a good day to cuddle up and read about fairies in the woods but I have promised the boy a bundled-up trip to the zoo.
