Show and Tell Friday

Well, I made it out today just before a huge storm rolled in and turned the flea market into a sea market. I did manage to find this one book before everyone, including myself, ran for cover. How appropriate, I thought, that The Gingham Girl should have herself a Gingham Dog. This old children's book is just delightful, with great vintage illustrations. The story isn't a happy one, since the gingham dog and calico cat end up destroying themselves at the end. Can't you tell by the photo? If only this book had been red instead of blue....
