Vintage Winnie the Pooh

Our friends and fellow parents-to-be, the Clothiers, have given us this gorgeous, vintage Winnie the Pooh print to decorate our nursery. I associate this classic story with them because after their 20 week scan, they described Baby Clothier as looking like Christopher Robbin!

This illustration prompted us to dig out Mr Biddle's well loved Pooh book from his childhood bedroom. A present from his Godfather, well thumbed and fondly remembered, the book is filled with the dainty illustrations which have become so iconic.

I was also amused to find Winnie Ille Pu on Mr B's old bookshelf - a translation of the story into Latin! Loving the drawing of Pooh on the front dressed as a Roman Centaur!
