This little card is too cute not to share! With the Ukulele theme and the little boy's sailor suit outfit, I would date this as 1920's vintage. Uke music was very popular during this period -- and I don't think I've had a Ukulele themed card in my store before! It's very cute, and equally unique.

Baby boomer vintage toys don't get cuter than this! This wooden frame tray puzzle for a small child was made by the Holgate toy company. I love vintage Holgate toys. It's an interesting company, founded in 1929, with many toys designed by Jarvis Rockwell, the brother of artist Norman Rockwell. This sweet puzzle features the Walt Disney character Donald Duck. The puzzle has 12 pieces, is perfect for a preschool age child, and would look so cute on display! Donald Duck puzzle at Birdhouse Books

My favorite of the day! This adorable little 1958 Whitman Tell-A-Tale book has the sweetest illustrations by Marjorie Hartwell. So cute - and the cute little chick is perfect for Spring time! Chicken Little at Birdhouse Books
