Fantasy Farming

How cute are the illustrations in this book?!!! I bought 4 adorable books for 99p on ebay - I felt guilty at the price, but gave super nice feedback! My children are going through a "can we have a dog, goat, chicken, rabbit, donkey, elephant?" stage. This hasn't been helped by the fact that we have just had an offer accepted (long way to go yet) on a cottage that has donkey stables and a field. This prospect has sent them into meltdown and they are already naming their ponies. The idea is complete fantasy, but I have to admit, I look at these pictures and get quite tempted myself! (then I remember the no money aspect and remind myself that with animals comes animal ****)
(she shouldn't do that, they can break a man's arm you know)
TTFN xxxx


  1. I love these type of pictures! Unlike reality farming, there's no manure, flies or worms pictured! ☺

  2. The girls in the pictures look so angelic...I wonder what they are really thinking?

  3. How idyllic!
    Sometimes we do need to escape into such a world,don't we?
    Have a great weekend!

  4. Great images, I just LOVE vintage children's books

    I wonder if they (the people who did the spade) also have the book..or if they snitched the pics from you?!!

    Well spotted!
