Pink Saturday: Honoring Eloise Wilkin

Don't you just L*O*V*E the illustrations of Eloise Wilkin?
They remind me of the sweet, gentle time childhood should be.

I love the peachy pink of his little cheeks, the freckles are pure bliss!


In honor of all the Dads out there...
Happy Father's Day!

She was one of my favorites, along with Garth Williams, who I had the pleasure of meeting and chatting with at a book signing in Walnut Grove (yes, Little House on the Prairie Walnut Grove)These artists are part of everyone's childhood memories! I've saved all these books for my future grandchildren!!

Oh my goodness, LillySue, I didn't know of this illustrator. Maybe because I don't have children. Her work is just lovely, beautifully done! Thank you for sharing her with us. Happy Pink Saturday!

"Hey", LillySue! I did not recognize the name, but I definitely recognized her work! I have a small, but ever growing collection of Little Golden Books! Of the pics you have shown today, I would say my favorite is the one with the little boy and the birds!.. Very sweet!
