Vintage Coolness


Ok, people.... This is straight from the seventies: my very own autographed copy of The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle. My Aunt Mary gave it to me as a gift when I was little. This is a real treasure. So, now that I broke out the big guns.... what on earth will I blog about next? My shoes? Macaroni and Cheese?? Calculators??? Things with the book are going really great, all of my sketches are now approved, as is the new-and-improved cover. I am busy and so happy, and LOST is back on tonight, too! Stay warm- it is really cold in MN!

this one is timeless! i wouldn't have known this copy was from the seventies if you hadn't mentioned it. they just had a very hungry caterpillar performance here at KU last month - so amazing that the book and its branches live on strong even today!
