Little books and cuckoo clocks!

Every nursery needs books and it appears that late Victorian and early Edwardian nurseries often featured a cuckoo clock too...

So I've been making some little books. Beatrix Potter was a much loved children's author and illustrator around this time. Her books are still as enchanting today., who can resist her beautiful pictures of wildlife and her darling little characters who have been popular with children and adults alike for many years....







I had a go at making some little books left open


I thought they would look good laid around as if just put down....
