Vintage children's books

I love the illustrations on vintage children's books! 
So soft and peaceful.
 I especially love the books about cats or pets. 
As a newbie collector I only have a few but am always on lookout. I may do some type of display at one point at local library. 
I seem to be on a book collecting period lately.
If anyone sees one for sale on ebay or etsy with cats on cover let me know. They usually are just in OK condition but it is the covers I really adore.

Cecil Beaton books

Sir Cecil Beaton was a sort of Jack of all trades in areas of artistic endeavor. He took photos of famous people and many of the British royal family. He worked as a war photographer, designed costumes, did interior design work,wrote books, he was on the best dressed list and hung out with actors, and society women. 
I have long admired his photographs and costume designs. My Fair Lady, Gigi and Coco film fashions are Beaton's creations.
Collecting his books is not only fun but fascinating reading. He designed his own book jackets and they are hard to ignore who wouldn't want to read one of these vibrant books?!
It is fun to enjoy his art and his travel notes and slip away from this time period into another.

Valentine Presentation French style!

I just adore how the French package items.
 Especially chocolates and perfumes! They are masters of the art of presentation.  Carol of Paris Breakfasts blog  posted about Mary's Chocolates in Belgium recently. The heart box is so pretty.
 I save all my French candy boxes from Mary's and Laduree. So sweet.
