Anyone for ice cream?

I cut out another Ice Cream Dress by Oliver + s this afternoon.  Again, this one is for my niece.  I’m using a Chinese lantern print for the main body paired with a yellow for the upper bodice and lower band.  We’ve got another snow storm starting here this evening, so maybe I’ll get to do some sewing tomorrow!

I also wanted to share two vintage Dr. Dolittle books I found at the thrift store.  The condition isn’t perfect, but I love the illustrations.

Even the inside covers are attractive.

There are both color, and black and white, illustrations throughout each of the books.

It was hard to get a good photo of this one, but the expression on the woman’s face is too funny as she is “nudging” the men over the edge. 

Here at Morning Glory Lane it is a good night to curl up with a book, vintage or otherwise.  Wishing you an evening of warmth and peace,
