vintage princess book

May 7, 2012

Recently, Christina of Pretty Little Nest sent me this gorgeous book that she picked up at a thrift store. A fellow vintage book lover, she saw it and had to pick it up!

Since she has two boys at home, she was kind enough to send it over to my princess-obsessed girls. We have been reading it over the past week--it's a collection of princess stories and we finally got to the end. 

I had never read any of the stories before, so it was new to both Juliet and myself. We really enjoyed the illustrations and have even found some inspiration for some new princesses dresses (she really loves the patchwork princess dress in the second photo!) 

It was a really nice break from the Disney gals. :) 

Although, The Princess book is out of print, you can find copies for sale on amazon and probably ebay as well. Or maybe you could get lucky and find it in your library. 

Even though the stories were fun to read, I think the thing I love most about it is the cover. Wouldn't it look great leaning against a wall on a display shelf with the cover forward? 

Do you have any "display" books in your home? Which ones do you showcase or which ones would you love to showcase? 

Thanks again for the beautiful book, Christina!
