Old Books and Sweet Memories

I was fortunate enough to find a copy of one of my favorite childhood books, The Little Red Hen, at a flea market a few weeks ago. After blogging about my treasure, I was showered with overwhelmingly sweet and nostalgic comments on my various sites. Those kind words inspired me to start searching for another childhood favorite, Too Many Kittens.

Grandma P. used to read Too Many Kittens to me when I was quite young. Cuddling up with her in her chair to listen to her read a story is among my most cherished memories. We spent many joyful hours in that old armchair of hers.

I logged onto a few different sites to see if anyone was selling a copy. I was amazed by how many people were selling the book I sought. I chose a seller from the myriad of vendors and made my purchase. I received my package yesterday. Too Many Kittens was bundled with Patsy the Pussycat and Donald Duck and the New Birdhouse. I read all three as soon as I opened the package.

The books are not in pristine condition. In fact, Too Many Kittens has several loose pages, but they’re all there. The seller was straightforward about the condition, so it didn’t come as a surprise. I actually like the fact these books were well loved by some lucky boy or girl. I’m going to display them on a shelf in my study with Animal Daddies and My Daddy, The Little Red Hen, and a nice collection of Wonder Woman books I’ve acquired over the years.

I enjoy surrounding myself with things that remind me of loved ones and happy memories. My study is an eclectic conglomeration of keepsakes, mementos, and treasures that inspire me.
