Cheer Up! and an Oz Tangent

I am not a morning person. But I MAY become one if I had this adorable carafe from NYC boutique Fishs Eddy:

I am also loving these vintage illustration Wizard of Oz cups. My mom would love them.

That reminds me. Did anyone else read the old Oz books? I was mesmerized by them as a child. The illustrations are fantastic. They don’t make books like this anymore.

I remember my FAVORITE was the Patchwork Girl. Looking back now, I’m not sure why. I’m surprised she didn’t scare me (she’s a little creepy looking, isn’t she?)

I LOVE books. I love to read them and I love beautiful bindings. I suppose it made perfect sense that I studied writing and design in school.

Does anyone else love going into used bookstores and looking for hours? My husband is quite patient with me. I could hide in a corner and peruse through books like this every weekend.

One thought on “Cheer Up! and an Oz Tangent

  1. I know what you mean, I personally cannot bring myself to read Alice in Wonderland or Through the Looking Glass unless they have the Tenniel illustrations. That was how I first read the books and first fell in love with them, and now I can’t read them any other way.
