Vintage Children's Cookbook

 Little Mother's Cookbook by JackO'hara was originally published in 1952.  I think it is full blown adorable. The illustrations are darling.  I have wanted one for a while but they were all too pricey.  Finally today, I scored one off of ebay for an insanely good price!  The book is in near perfect condition and is in the original box.  Whoohoo!

Love the design of your blog. It is every bit as precious as the title vintage cookbook. Those illustrations are wonderful for those of us who have LOTS of age on us. I have a big smile on my face right now. Genie

I love that vintage cookbook. Vintage cookbooks have so much more character than the ones you find today and the recipes are still very tasty....and hey...if ya can't take all real butter, sugar, and lard...it's very easy to substitute.

Happy Pink Saturday Jori Sweetie...
What a gorgeous share today. I have never heard of this book and how delightful it is. I will have to start watching as well. Even still in the box, can you believe it?

Love the illustrations, they are so delightful, love the expressions. Old fashioned cookbooks are some of my favs to browse through and see the writings left by others along their baking trails. So much fun today in visiting.

Have a glorious weekend and a beautiful Pink Saturday. Many hugs, Sherry
