Golden Books Swap

 Hi There.  I have been thinking about doing this swap for a little while now.  These are some shelves in my kitchen.  Notice the little things on the bottom shelf.....and hold that in your memory for a minute.
 See the tiny things......like the scotty dog and the cherub and two pitchers......one is cut off.  Keep remembering.


Now about the swap.  I'd like to see if you would want to join this swap.  We can swap Golden books or any vintage children's book.  Now the one pictured is a new book.  I choose this one because of  Spring.  What a wonderful time of year to appreciate all the beauty around us.  Eloise Wilkins is (was, still is)  my favorite illustrator.  Her work is so precious.
So here are the rules.
1.   You can swap a new or vintage child's book. 
2.   You send me your information........email  grammypetals@yahoo.com (Blog address, your mailing address, name and write a little something about your self.) 
3.   You can only spend $10 plus shipping.
4.   If you want, you can include other vintage items.....or other little things (surprise us)  (Remember those little things in the pictures above........maybe something like that)
5.  Send something you would like to receive.
6.  I will chose your swap partner.  He He He
7.  Your package needs to be mailed by May 25th. (That's one month from today)
8.  Before you send all your information, please leave me a comment here so I can see if there is enough interest.......I think there will be.
9.  Have fun with this.  Be willing to post what you give and receive.
And thank you......this will be fun.......if I missed anything , let me know.

Updates:
I am hoping that my computer hacking is taken care of.
I have pictures I want to post of Hope's birthday party, part two.
I am sad today.  The movers are at my friends house packing and moving her from Ohio to South Carolina.....and her husband as well.  She stopped by yesterday to take me to coffee.  We have been spending alot of time this last month.  I know I will see her but not like we do now.  It just makes me sad.
This is my first time posting with the new blogger.  My pictures are not in the right order.  I'm not complaining about the newness because this is the best free thing ever.  How would I have gotten to know all of you.
Okay, I think I had better stop.
Hope you all are having a good week.
(((((HUGS))))))

I am sorry that you are losing your friend and neighbor. You are right- it is just not the same when someone is not right next door anymore.

I don't think I can join the swap right now, although I would love to do so...I just have way too much on my plate. I hope you get a ton of people signing up. xo Diana

Hi Debby, I got the Spain email and knew that someone was up to no good! I've never done a swap, but Golden books I got!!! Count me in.
Sorry about your friend moving. I talked to a friend today that is now in Minnesota, and it's hard being so far away. Technology today helps to keep friends close , even when they are far way! Love, Penny

Hi Debby,
yes, moving friends is what is part of our life here too. People always move, we are still here...
I will have a look if I have a good book for the swap, will let you know,
take care, Maureen x

What a GREAT swap idea. Sooo sorry that your neighbor is moving away. I have been the neighbor moving and the neighbor left behind and it isn't fun either way. Keep your head up girl.

Honey, I have to get you posting with Live Writer instead of Blogger. Maybe next time we meet up. You have a laptop? It is a wonderful way to blog! :-). XO Sue

Hi Debby, I'm sorry that you are sad about your neighbors moving. I hope that you will get some real nice new neighbors.

Thanks but I will not be swapping as I have no interest at the moment but I wish you a great swap. I'm sure that it will be a great success.

About Blogger I think that they should make things easier to post instead of having to search for features that we were used to before. I've noticed a drop in posting and a lot of frustration.
Just saying... Hugs, JB

I hope you got my message on FB about getting an email from Spain with your email acct saying you needed money.

Good luck on your swap and I am so sorry about your neighbor. I have experienced that myself.~Hugs, Patti

Nan said...

I will do the swap I'm sure I can pull out one Golden Book I can part with and find some other little trinkets around here.
yeah I hate to loose a good neighbor too like that but who knows when one door closes another opens. Nan

Hi Debby, I am so sad that your friend is moving but as I am a South Carolina girl she will find friendly folks there. I cannot swap. I have fifty things going here at once and my college kiddo comes home tomorrow-yay. hugs, olive

Gretchen said...

I am sorry you are losing your neighbor but happy to know where she is moving. She's going to love it in South Carolina. Be sure to e-mail me your friends address and I'll send her a little "Welcome to South Carolina" package. Count me in for the swap. It's such a great idea and since I've got lots of little readers close by, they will love it. Our favorite is always "Dr. Dan the Bandage Man".

I do not have any golden books here any longer..my children have them for their own little ones..I think one daughter has ended up with most of the books. I do love to decorate with books. Smiles, xo, Susie

Debby...I do not have any vintage children’s books, but I do have old one from my kid’s which I would love to share. You need to email me when a swap is coming up. I will take part...would love it. I will just need to mark the calendar so I do not forget. This Neurontin I take for the spasms makes me forget my name. I kid you not. It wipes out memory...then I struggle...and then I remember it...but it is hard. genie
