Fairy Tale Nostalgia

While cleaning out one of the closets in my house the other day, I came across a gem in the form of a book.

"The Fairy Tale Book".

Though it's spine is well-worn, and broken, it's no less beautiful.  It's gorgeous.  Full page illustrations, twenty-eight stories, little birds and trees drawn on every page.

I found this inscription on the inside cover.  "From Grandma & Grandpa.  12/25/68".  Isn't this cool?  My great-grandparents gave my dad this for Christmas when he was a kid.

The copy that we have is from the seventh printing, in 1966, and it's absolutely fantastic.

"The Sleeping Beauty" has always been one of my favorite stories.

Is it possible to go wrong with fairy tales like these?

"Beauty and the Beast", another favorite.

Have you felt any fairy tale nostalgia recently?

  1. Oh, what a delightful book! That looks wonderful to read.

  2. Oh my word; I'm almost envious of this book. (The only reason I'm not is because it's unChristian, haha!) It's so beautiful; treasure it always!
