The Auction Story Continues...

More from the absentee auction--These Bibles were in a box in the no bid pile, so I got all of them plus other books for $.25. (The bush in the back is our rhododendron in full bloom!)

This was part of the "other books" I got with the Bibles for a quarter!! It's damaged, but the leather is like butter it's so smooth.

And inside was this dried flower sprig. Don't you just wonder? What was the occasion? What was on her mind the day she tucked it away?

This poem was written on one of the inside pages of one of the Bibles. I couldn't get all of the text in the picture, but you get the idea.

This was the Bible the poem was written in. I'd say she took the poem to heart. I don't know what I'll do with these Bibles. I took a lot of photographs of them today. All of them are embossed with the owner's name. All of them show the love they were given. For now, I am honored to have them.


  1. I love the old books too, if you could open them and they could tell their story, wouldn't that be great.

  2. Hello, just found your blog this morning and have been visiting many of your older posts. I love your style and the way you repurpose! That is one of my favorite things to do as well!
    So many clever ideas in your blog. A new follower.


Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit!
