Spring time makes me think of these adorable books I had as a child called "Herself the Elf." I also had one of the figures and a record of the stories too. The illustrations are pretty and pastel and the books have little pop- up flaps with pictures underneath. My daughter loves these because she can lift them up as I read.The books were published by the Hallmark brand, like "Strawberry Shortcake," but they were not as popular. I really wish they would be brought back.
|The images are so delicate and pretty.|
|I have all the season books for my daughter.|
|The record that I still have. I just love the cover image. |
I like to use old record covers as art. Here it is in my hallway, perfect with its pastel shades to welcome spring! It would be so sweet in a nursery, don't you think?

I would love to throw a "Herself the Elf" party for my daughter sometime. Hmmmm.
