I got a raft of treats for Christmas, nearly all from mail-art and/or blog pals I've never met. Thank you so much to Pamela, Dawn, John, Terry, Ellen, Jen, Donna, Jacki, Kristin, and others who sent cards. For someone who doesn't celebrate Christmas, this was truly lovely.
I stopped by Eureka Books when I was in town on Tuesday, and found five great old books in the bargain section. The two Book House volumes are from 1921 and 1925, and I hadn't seen these earlier editions before. The others I have from that series were published in 1948 and 1953. Essentially the books inside are the same, but the covers are way more ornate on the earlier ones. Also, the one on top above is number five in the series, and the title is "From The Tower Window," whereas the number five in the later editions is called "Over The Hills."
This music theory book is from 1945.
The picture puzzle book is from 1937. Interesting what we used to amuse ourselves with back then.
This last beauty is from 1900.
Hope you all had a special day yesterday, and a lovely weekend. xo
