I was able to get to the last day of an estate sale yesterday- my favorite time to go as they want to deal and love someone buying in bulk. The books are just a small sample from the 3 boxes I bought. He made me a good offer what can I say? I only bought one suitcase, but was oh so tempted to come home with about 3 more!
This book cover is very rough but still so beautiful.
Look inside--to Rosa from Santa Claus in 1894. (Does that make you all sentimental? It does me!)
This little note was tucked inside. "Are you mad at me for being late?"
And the reply on the back side, "Yes, what are you going to do?" ....I picture this note being passed in an old small country school house between Rosa and ...maybe his name was Andrew...and he was supposed to meet her to walk with her to school....
I can never pass up a typewriter at a reasonable price. This may be one for parts. It's a little sticky and no black ink left. But, I don't know. Otherwise it's in such good shape. I just love how a typewriter looks. In my opinion that's enough. It doesn't have to be used for anything. I have two that are so lovely they have their alloted shelf space just to sit and be admired.
More buying in bulk--bling!
One big bag of vintage scraps. I'll keep them in a clear bag and just pull out and iron what I need-- when I need it. There are a couple of really lovely pieces in that mess!
I'm joining Clara and Marcela again for Junkin' Monday. You can check out what they found this past weekend and many other bloggers as they share their new treasures here.
