Sunday carbooting finds...

I was happy to find these lovely lot on one of the last stalls I got to, after feeling a bit hard done by that I hadn't found anything too interesting, apart from the usual kids toys (..more dinosoaurs) and books..
 and this one
So many gorgeous iillustrations, here are a few...

 and my favourite story is from the 1960's book 'John and the Rocket'. Its a story of a boy who sneaks out with a firework rocket looking for someone to light it and when his dad finds him, rather than freak the hell out because his son has been walking about with an explosive, just picks him up takes him home and then lights it (about a foot away from where they are standing). Hmm childhood in the!

and finally, on a random note! These 20 odd jars of chutney and pickled beans were finally finished at 1am yesterday morning...all for the love of chutney!
Thats all folks, you can join in with thrifting adventures and check out other car boot loot on the blog  Her Library Adventures.
