Vintage picture dominoes and Jane Foster's Birthday






I'm obsessed with vintage children's picture dominoes as I love the designs and colours. I've at least 6 different boxes and here are some I framed for my wall. Am I the only one out there who will buy a really boring Penguin paperback just for it's cover with absolutely no intention of ever reading it? I had a Birthday this week and here are two fab apple presents I received from two different people.

Happy belated Birds day!
You are not the only one:) I not only buy books for the covers... but cds and magazines. May be that's not entirely healthy for some - but is perfectly logical with me:)
You can never get enough apple patterned objects:)

I love how you've framed the dominos, I have some lovely picture lotto cards from when I was a kid - I might steal your idea! Thanks! x

Love to read your blog, I have some Pelican/Penguins "just because" too, that cover is very good, isn't it?
