Last week while buying a Baptismal gift in our lovely local bookshop/cafe, I came across a beautifully illustrated edition of The Snow Queen by Hans Christian Andersen. It made me feel nostalgic, because I just loved that story as a child, and remember well some of the pictures in my childhood copy.
Imagine my delight last night, while looking for a new bedtime story for Emily on our rather extensive bookshelves, to find my old storybook still there. I had forgotten I still had it! The story is "In seven parts", so I am hoping that by the end of the week, Emily will also come to love it. And if she does, I will go back to the bookshop and buy that new one for her!
And perhaps one for myself, too!

If it the book we sell in our shop it is indeed a beautiful edition as well as a beautiful addition to anyone's shelves... The children's section of the shop hold more peril for me than the craft section does...:)) There is always a new something to ooohhh and ahhh over... But then again I am completely hoplesss and a slave to my obsession...
