Ruby Throat Hummingbird for Pink Saturday

I love vintage books! But I am clearing a few shelves to make room for more wonderful books so have decided to part with a few. The book pictured here is from my personal collection and just one of the vintage books I've decided to sell in my etsy shop: VINTAGE COTTAGE HOME. Take a look. You may remember some of the others I have listed as well. All warm with nostalgia! Come visit when you have a moment!


For more PRECIOUS PINK POSTS, go to Beverly's PINK SATURDAY!!!


  1. hi! i love seeing your beautiful pictures! what a nostalgy...they remind me of my happy childhood and my beloved grandma who used to read me stories...

  2. Happy Pink Saturday Coralie Sweetie...
    I adore this book. SO beautiful, and I can't believe you are selling some of your precious books. I just cannot part with any of my books, they all have some sort of memory I am afraid. Some day the kids can decide what to part with, I refuse to do it. I love them all.

    This is a beautiful book sweetie. Thank you for sharing. I love these books as they remind me of when I was learning to read, and the little readers looked like this. Moma read to us from books such as these.

    Thank you for sharing sweetie. I love it when you do. Scratch my little Bonnie and Carries ears and tell them Aunt Sherry says hello.

    Country hugs sweetie and so much love...Sherry
