What's New in the Shop Today!

Here are some new items I have just listed in the Vintage Bunty shop at

This a really lovely old sheet music booklet called "River & Rainbow" by Walter Carroll, who is described as the Beatrix Potter of learner piano music.  The booklet isn't dated but I do know that the music was written in 1933 and this particular book is out of print, although I believe a completely new edition has recently been published.

There are 10 miniature pieces with such lovely names as Glow Worms, The Tiger Moth, Iris and By Crystal Stream.  There is a charming picture of children and fairies (from the original by Arther Rackham) - shown below.  The second picture is of the inside front cover with line drawing.  There are no tears in the book and considering its age, it is in fair condition.   Having done some research on this, it would seem that there are only a couple of copies available in rare book shops!

Also new today are these pretty collaged paper hearts (made by me), which are offered as a set of 5 .  These can be added to any papercraft project to add that finishing touch.  There is only one set of these at the moment but if more than one person would like a set, just let me know and I will do some more!

Please pop over to the shop and have a closer look.
