I don't know about you but I love books, especially when they are old books, full of beautiful illustrations that whizz you back in time to when life was simpler. In my dream world I'd live half my week in the 1940's with quieter homely things going on (that's code for no internet) and the other half blogging my bottom off in the noughties. Alas my dream world cannot exist and so I settle for the next best thing giving a nod to days gone by. Grab a cup of tea, sit back and relax and I take you into the world of Green Willow Farm by Elizabeth Gould & Eileen A. Soper, published in the 1940's I believe...

Eillen Soper was an illustrator of children's and wildlife books,  illustrating books for other writers, for example Elizabeth Gould, shown here in this post. Eileen illustrated some Enid Blyton books, if you've read The Famous Five books then you've seen Eileen's beautiful illustrations before. After living a life full of illustrating and writing her own children's books, Eileen sadly passed away in 1990.
