I‘ve moved right along to this second volume of E.H. Shepard‘s (the original illustrator of Winnie the Pooh) memoirs of his Victorian childhood.

Great Aunt Georgie! 🍷🍷🍷

I‘m currently reading this pretty little #SlightlyFoxed edition of Ernest Shepard‘s memoir of his Victorian childhood.

He‘s probably most famous for his Winnie the Pooh illustrations (and the illustrations in this volume are delightful).

(Sleepy #JohnnyBergen. Shhh! 🤫)

I‘m shelving a few more of my holiday book shopping finds.

I had to restrain myself from shoving small children aside when I spotted these #SlightlyFoxed editions on the shelf at a secondhand bookshop. 😆😆

Cathythoughts Exciting 🎉🎉 6mo

squirrelbrain Nothing wrong with shoving when there‘s books in sight! 6mo
HardcoverHearts I love these so much! Wonderful find. I wouldn‘t have convicted you if you had shoved them aside. 😉 6mo
Hooked_on_books Shove away! Small children bounce, so it‘s ok. 😬 6mo
Reviewsbylola What a great find! 6mo
Aimeesue Gah! Children? What children? Did I tromple them in my SF - induced delirium? Ever so sorry! 😄 6mo
Aimeesue But I have to say that I'm astounded they ended up in a secondhand shop! ❤️ 6mo
Liz_M Those editions look lovely! I'll have to add them to the pretty books to look for list. 6mo

Aimeesue @LeahBergen I both love it and fear its arrival. It always means more books are added to the TBR list. How can I POSSIBLY not buy Lord Emsworth‘s Annotated Whipple now??? (edited) 9mo

Shephard had a remarkable style, which we all remember from Pooh, of course. Lovely little reprint from #SlightlyFoxed. I just adore their tiny books.

Some of my very favourite flowers have arrived with the new season - french anemone & ranunculus. It was with sheer joy, I hemmed & hawed over each bright bunch, settling finally on a beautiful coral for the ranunculus & cheery raspberry for the anemone. They are happily residing on a little side table next to my reading chair. Another seasonal joy, a fresh issue of @foxedquarterly has just arrived on the stoop. #foxedquarterly #slightlyfoxed

Centique Gorgeous flowers! 11mo
catebutler @Centique I was so happy to see these in stock at Trader Joe‘s - these have such a short season, so I have to make the most of them. 🧡 11mo
BiblioLitten Splendid colours, and those flowers are wildly beautiful! 😍 11mo

catebutler @BiblioLitten Thank you! I do love how all the pretty flowers start to show up again with the spring. 11mo
LeahBergen I‘m waiting for my Slightly Foxed to arrive, too! 🦊 11mo
catebutler @LeahBergen I was so happy when it arrived yesterday! I hope yours arrives soon. Do you read it in one go, or try to make it last? I try to be good, but I find I zip through it pretty quickly. 11mo
BibliOphelia Ranunculus (ranunculi?? 😜) are my favorite! 😍 11mo
catebutler @BibliOphelia I just had to look up the plural after your comment. So intriguing! 🤔 I guess it would be ‘ranunculuses‘ or ‘ranunculi‘. I think ranunculi sounds better, don‘t you? They‘re my favourite too, and I guess anemones are actually part of the ranunculaceae family. Probably why I love them too! 11mo
BibliOphelia I applaud you for looking it up! I was just winging it. My favorite ranunculus relative is the peony. 💕 11mo
catebutler @BibliOphelia Ha! My detective mode kicked in. Peonies are my absolute favorite too (kindred spirits). Just a few more months and they‘ll be here. 😊 11mo
BibliOphelia 😍😍 11mo

A family of three British children being brought up in the wild jungle of Malaysia by a Swiss nanny. They go back and forth from the French countryside where they stomp grapes and make wine to put into the barrels in the cellar. Delightfully eccentric and adventurous, it‘s a lovely read.

LeahBergen I have this one, too! Did you end up ordering the Ernest Shepard set? 12mo
Aimeesue @LeahBergen I just ordered it! I was waiting for my mileage check to come in from work. 😄 12mo
catebutler I have this one on my shelf, your description makes me want to pick it up ASAP! Slightly Foxed is one of my favourite publishers. I was so happy to see this pop up on my feed. 12mo

Aimeesue @catebutler It‘s lovely. And then sort of horrifying by turns, as living in the jungle with man-eating crocodiles, scorpions, poisonous caterpillars, tigers and pythons is apt to be. SF books are just gorgeous objects, in and of themselves. 12mo
batsy Sounds fascinating! Not least for the Malaysian setting 🙂 12mo
Aimeesue @batsy It certainly is! The contrast between France/Malaysia and the attempts at “upholding” standards in a context that is completely inhospitable to doing so is something to behold. There‘s kind of a G. Durrell My Family and Other Animals vibe about it, too. 12mo
batsy Sounds really good. And the Durell is another book that's been in my TBR for far too long! 12mo
