Aladdin's Cave

The other day my hubby, youngest daughter and I went over to Mum and Dad's to help them sort out the attic.  A lot of the time my inspiration for my work comes from my childhood and I had asked Mum previously if we had still got my Ladybird books but she said she thought she had taken them to school - she was a primary school teacher. So imagine my absolute JOY when this rusty old tin trunk came out of the attic and we opened up to find ....
All of my Ladybird books!  Plus Thomas the Tank Engine and Beatrix Potter.
We didn't find my favourite Thomas the Tank story which was the one where Thomas got stuck in the snow but we've only done half of the attic so you never know!
Unfortunately I ripped the picture on the cover of Samuel Whiskers because he scared me so much - plus he deserved it for treating the little kitten so cruelly!
It was a great day - and it was great to relive childhood memories.

What do you remember reading when you were a child?

The Fairies have chosen the three lucky winners who are:
They win a set of three fairy brooches worth £15!
