I love children's book illustration and this is one that I found at the flea market. The book is called "Surprise, the story of Molly and Mops" It is about a little girl and the surprise present her dog Mops gives her for her birthday. It was published in 1935 by the Whitman Publishing Company of Racine, Wisconsin and the author is Charims, (Charlotte Helen Smith) whom I can't find any information on.

I fell in love with this vintage cup and saucer (left) made by the Swedish company Rorstrand. The pattern is aptly named Triangla. It inspired the little drawing of the bird and flowers (right) which is available in my shop. The illustration is done on a paint chip that has 4 different shades of green.
