Whimsies by Lietta - 1967

These charming notebook covers and totes use bright felt and imagination. The hands are wood ice cream spoons, the "ballet slipper" bag includes a key ring, and the sewing tote has scissors for a bow, a tape measure on the tree and a thimble in her pocket!


  1. Oh, heck yes. Those are keepers. Awesome. To be totally honest, I am a might green with envy! Those are the best.

    Thanks doll,

  2. This information was shared by a reader;
    "Her real name was Helen Dowd. She lived in Pasadena and was noted for murals, ceramic figures, and pictures. She drew murals for baby nurseries of some of the rich and famous, and was noted for having carried a picture for Prince Andrew’s baby nursery. She was commissioned and then delivered the picture to London herself. The Star News of March 18, 1963 carries the article."
