I am participating in Southern Hospitality's Thrifty Treasures Party today.
We are having a busy weekend. A wedding on Friday and my mom's 80th birthday Monday, and graduation this week! We did find time to go estate sale shopping in between.I collect old children's books and found some very old ones. They are in rough shape but I could not resist. This Roosevelt Bears book has a date of 1907. The spine has come apart and I haven't gotten to browse through it yet but I think it has all of it's pages.
My other score is two Frank Baum books. The copy of the Wizard of Oz is dated 1899 and is in decent condition for it's age although the pages are loose. The other, called John Dough and the Cherub is in poor shape but the owner assured me all of the pages are here. I am thinking of finding out if they can be rebound, and if it would be worth doing. I would love to see them preserved.
I also found a couple of 50's patterns. Why don't women dress like this any more? I know we are probably WAY more comfy but...
I would so wear this jacket. If only I could sew. Gloves and hat too.
I would make one in each version. My Silver Bella wardrobe maybe? If I lose a few pounds I just may make an attempt!
For the traveler who just can't wait to make the trek to the hotel bar...
just bring this portable set up with you. Space for three different liquors, a mixing spoon, bottle opener, shot glass and 4 cups! It is a party in a case.
Hmmm, I was thinking of selling this but...maybe this could go to Silver Bella too!
I doubt it would make it through the airport security!
Check out all the wonderful Thrifty Treasures on Rhoda's blog today.
Happy Memorial Day! Thanks to all who served and are serving our country to assure our freedom and safety. Prayers for your safe return home.
Have an all American Memorial Day, P.
