Sorry no furniture reveals today! Today I wanted to talk about one of my recent finds.
One of the things that I collect is vintage Lucy Maud Montgomery books. I only have about 7 or 8 in my collection and sometimes sneak them into my blog via staging....
The top one in the above picture is an antique store find.
And... they're even in my profile picture. The top two in the above pic are Montgomery books.
So, You can imagine my delight when I saw this book on display at a thrift store!
It was priced at $10.00. I will be revealing a bit of my... ummm... economical... nature here when I say that I hesitated when I saw the price. But... it had it`s original dust jacket, and I suspected that it was a first edition, so I went ahead and purchased it. And when I researched it on the internet when I got home, let`s just say that I was pleasantly surprised by my 10.00 investment!
This tattered and faded 1920 copy of Rilla of Ingleside is one of my favorites since it belonged to my great-grandmother.
Do you collect old books?
And... I know I said no furniture... but here's a sneak peak of what I've been working on this week...
