I was just looking at the date of my last post and realized it has been over five months since I have made an entry. I don’t particularly like to be on my computer during my daughter’s waking hours so I have let my blogging life fall by the wayside. As I perused my old posts I realized that I don’t want to give it up completely. So while my daughter naps today I will show you a few of her vintage books.

Know What? No, what? by Arline and Joseph Baum  1964

Sleepy Time by Gyo Fujikawa  1986 (originally published in 1975, this is a 1986 printing)



Here is a book of Warholisms that will make you chuckle.

Excerpt from book-

“I really like to eat alone. I want to start a chain of restaurants for other people who are like me called ANDYMATS–“The restaurant for the lonely person.” You get your food and then you take your tray into a booth and watch television.”


Check out the books that I picked up at the thrift store today! I’ve been wanting A History of the World in 100 Objects for a while!

ps, It is harder than I thought to blog with a baby on my lap!

I usually go on a road trip every summer but this year I have a brand new baby and she happens to hate riding in the car. On the last five or so trips I’ve made it a point to visit some kind of art or architectural creation. I have been to a few places listed in the book Destination Art – Marfa, The Farnsworth House, The Sun Tunnels, Spriral Jetty, and Watts Towers. There are so many more that I would like to see that look interesting. I know that I won’t be going on a long road trip for a while but a few destinations on my list are Giardino Dei Tarocchi, The Lightening Field, Double Negative and Star Axis.
