Golden Books for Christmas


I hope you are having a great weekend! For the first time in over 200 days, Northern Colorado has finally gotten some snow. Not that I’m complaining about the longer than usual Fall, but the snow was helpful to flip the creative switch for the holidays! So, of course, out came the Golden Books!

Golden Books really are unique in that several generations have fond memories of their favorite stories. Fairly inexpensive and easily accessible (they could be found even at the grocery store), Golden Books contain fun stories and beautiful illustrations. Many well- known artists and authors have contributed to Golden Books.

These baskets are a way of bringing this Golden Book nostalgia into functional, seasonal home/party decor.  Perfect for a gift basket or fill it up with candies. 🙂

I’ve gathered these Golden Book baskets up and have them now listed in my Etsy store. You can find them HERE.


I hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend!

Happy Creating,

    You are a girl after my own heart! I have seen these a number of times and love them more every time I see them!
    I am a late 1950’s early 1960’s girl…when it comes to Christmas…I remember it all so well!
    Thank you for giving me ideas on how to use the goodies from my childhood!
    Merry Christmas Michelle!

      Hi Sandy,

      Merry Christmas to you too! Thank you so much for the sweet comment.
      The 40s, 50s, and 60s really was the “Golden Age of Christmas”. Christmas is just not the same
      without these images. 🙂

      I’m so happy to hear these projects are giving you some Christmas inspiration. 🙂

      Enjoy the holidays!
