Vintage Bookshelf :: The Pocket Book.



I love this little kid’s book. Such a cute idea for a story, but I mostly love how fabulously smug each kid is: “You say you’ve got a pocket? Oh yeah?? Well I’ve got THREE pockets!” Take a look.



I’m sure there’s a bad joke to be made about the slightly creepy dad and his abundance of pockets (never mind the lollipops) but lets pretend to view this with innocent eyes, mmmkay??

    That is adorable! Have you seen Sew Weekly’s recent photos of vintage toddler dresses? Framing these images and then some of those — to die for!

    Wait, say what? Whitney–thanks! I didn’t know you were a fan of Sew Weekly? I love that site. Heading over there right now! It’s my Wednesday lunch treat! Yahoo!!! That Mena Trott is six times crazy talented.

    I love the images but all they make me think of is lame pocket jokes. I’ve already erased two from this comment bar.

    What gorgeous illustrations. I’ve felt ill at ease all day and now I suspect that it’s because I have zero…yes, zero pockets.
