  1. I love old books! What a find.

  2. How perfect is that!? Looks like you and your Mom are on the same page (no pun intended) as far as cool kid gifts go. Love it when that happens.

  3. Cute! We have phoebes all over the place around here. I would definitely say they are friendly for a wild bird. =)

  4. perfecto! what a superb gift

  5. OMIGOSH i am absolutely losing my mind over the type and the illustration on the cover. BEAUTIFUL!!! and the sweet drawing right behind it looks like phoebe!

  6. That IS the perfect gift!

  7. Love the picture! I spy some lovely frozen charlotte ladies from Jennifer Murphy… So sweet!

  8. Enjoy that beautiful book. After February 10th used books will be contraband, courtesy of the CPSIA.

  9. how perfect is that? lucky phoebe!

  10. That is possibly the coolest present ever! Pheobe is very lucky (as are you, because if your mum buys presents like that for her, she must also buy amazing ones for you)

  11. So cute. I think the first time I heard the name Phoebe was in a book. I thought it was lovely. Maybe Eight Cousins by Alcott?

  12. How sweet is that book? *awww* 🙂
    Also wanted to let you know that my blog has changed locations, and I am having a Grand-Re-Opening giveaway of Jewelry & Starbucks cards, so stop on by if you get a chance! 🙂

  13. What a perfect gift! I love children’s books and look for them everywhere! Love your sweet little characters, too!

  14. Love the aged linen looking cover and the wee animals posing in front of it.

  15. Oh my gosh! How lovely! The puzzle behind it is great, and I agree, it does look a lot like Phoebe.

  16. okay, you HAVE to track down “Phoebe and the Hot Water Bottles” by Linda Dawson & Terry Furchgott. it was one of my all-time favorite books as a child. it seems to be out of print, but you can see the image of it here:

  17. Absolutely beautiful! What a great find.
