Joan Walsh Anglund Collection..
Over the last five years or so I have collected over 40 Joan Walsh Books
My first book was given to me by my very sweet friend
"Love is a Special way of Feeling"
Most of my collection I have found in thrift shops, the cheapest book was 50c
I love the delicate beauty of the tiny pictures.
"A Book of Good Tidings" is filled with thoughtfully chosen Bible verses
Joan's little pocket Books are just a delight to read, they come with a little cover to protect the precious book
In Australia these books are very hard to find so I sourced them on ebay.
"A year is Round" is a very sweet book
You may have noticed the artist (Joan Walsh) only gives her little people eyes when she draws - they don't have mouths or noses
"Spring is a new Beginning"
"What colour is Love ?"
"Look out the Window"
"Childhood is a Time of Innocence"
"In a Pumpkin Shell"
"Nibble Nibble Mousekin"
"Morning is a little Child"
...a childs sense of wonder
"The Brave Cowboy"
"Christmas is a time of giving"
"A is for alway"
"A Birthday Book"
"Do you love someone"
"A Child's Book of Old Nursery Rhymes"
"Love on Another"
"Almost a Rainbow"
(I was a little sad when I bought "Almost a Rainbow" as it was a book of poems for Adults and had not pictures)
I was so excited when I found the little Joan Walsh Anglund miniature tea set
I really love my porcelain collection aswell...
But my favourite Joan Walsh items are the wee fine pewter Figurines
They have been exquisitly handcrafted and they are my absolute little treasures
So the big question is ?
Do you know of any other books or other Joan Walsh treasures..???
Please let me know so I can start hunting
I would really love to add to my collection
