Vintage Black Friday

The French Cupboard hosts Vintage Black Friday on the first Friday of each month.  I'm excited to join up for the first time!

I got these glasses and the two bottom books at the last auction I attended.

They have been sitting around the last two weeks just waiting for their photo shoot.

This is my favorite vintage photo I own that sits on this book in my sewing room.

Honesty here:  I've never read Longfellow...but would like to. Probably never will.

This book is so fun to look through.

This is the cover of the Jane Eyre book.  It's beautiful.

Honesty here:  I've never read Jane Eyre...but would like to.  Probably never will.

I knew when I saw these at the auction, I was taking them home with me.  I have to say they are my favorite purchase in a long time.  I think they will now go to rest on Longfellow in my sewing room.  At least until they cry out to be photographed again.

Don't forget to check out all the other wonderful Vintage Black Friday posts over here!
