Vintage Illustrations!

I WANT this amazing tray from Kitsch Café!! We had workbooks in Kindergarten with this style of illustration and I LOVE it. I remember the illustrations so vividly! I really wish I could find some of those workbooks and I really wish I could buy this tray (trying to do better on spending, boo!) Oh well, at least I can admire, right?

I LOOOOOOVE the illustrations in this book. Any time anyone asks me my favorite book, it's always this one :) I used to read it all the time when I was a child and I am going to get a copy of it soon so I can read it over and over lol. I'm not sure what happened to my copy but I wish I could find it! I heart Maurice Sendak :)

These prints by Pie For Blackbirds are not technically vintage, but don't they give you that whimsical vintage feel? Leslie Dallion has been a MAJOR inspiration for me over the past few years. (She's the reason I got into making miniature food!) Even though she no longer makes/sells miniature food, I love what she's doing with her illustrations!

do you have any favorite vintage illustrations? share!

I have a little set of Maurice Sendak books that includes the Chicken Soup With Rice. I love his illustrations! I might blow some up and frame them for my nephew's bedroom.
