Pixie's Pearl Pinkie, Sea Greenie and Birthday Book
I wanted to share with you some images from the Pixie O'Harris Birthday Book. For those who are unfamiliar Pixie is the Australian fantasy artist from the so called golden age of children's book illustrators. She was nicknamed the Welsh Pixie by the friends she made on the boat voyage over to Australia and the name stuck ever since. Her first published fairy tale book was Pearl Pinkie and Sea Greenie in 1930. http://www.snowskinmooncakes.blogspot.com.au/2011/06/gumnut-necklace.html I have the birthday book in my vintage shop at the moment stall H29 Glen Waverly Antiques Bazaar.
