Hansel & Gretel

My husband Rodney and I went to the used book store on lunch one day last week. He reads books at the speed of light and I'm always looking for interesting old books. He found three books that I'm thinking will last him all of 30 minutes, LOL, and I found this. Hansel and Gretel cloth covered Little Golden Book from 1943.
It has some of the cutest illustrations by Erika Weihs. Many of them have these bright cheery colors but some of them are in black and white...
Aren't their beds just adorable! And I love the fact that her dress is hanging on the wall.
This one is just awesome as well. 
Just had to share these. So cute!

I hope you are having a great week!
