book fair

Well it's Easter time again and our town holds a book fair for charity. I've been going to this for years and most of my extensive book shelving groans with treasured items. The sections I go to are- chidrens' books, poetry, cooking, craft, then novels.
What did I find yesterday?

This type of book I remember fondly from my childhood.
Then I found this one for my grandaughter.
Does nostalgia drive our own stories, our own writing?

Great finds mum - nearly temping me to go along and snap up some books too.

All of my writing and art making for that matter is triggered by nostalgia - or a need to connect with the past and traditions. I hope also to pass on the joy I have experienced in my life; especially in my childhood to others
