I received the most delicious parcel in the post the other day.
A parcel from a long time blog reader, Karen.
A lovely Lucie Attwell book with two doileys slipped under the cover and all wrapped in the most perfect supper cloth held in place by three button pins.
What a treasure of a parcel to open, it made me so happy.
It seems I now have four Lucie Attwell books though I know there is another one or maybe two in hiding but despite my best efforts they refuse to show themselves.
Maybe I only ever imagined them.
Anyway, more than two is a collection and that makes me very happy.
The oldest book in this stack, the one at the bottom is my brother's Lucie Attwell annual, from 1957 I think when he was just one year old.
The next two I bought on ebay and of course the top book is my lovely gift.
Thank you so much Karen.
You are a very generous soul.
