The Book Of Ornamental Alphabets

This wonderful treasure has sold~

Finding a treasure like this at an estate sale makes waking up early and standing in line, all worth it. This book is a true treasure, and so very rare. I always find it amazing that something like this can survive for nearly 100 years! This sixteenth edition has a printing date of 1914. I wish I could show you each and every page. There are 53 in all but here's a sampling for you to enjoy!

This will be listed on eBay beginning Sunday, April 3

Don't ya love it when you find those great old pieces...hard to part with some though. I've been purging a lot lately, just getting bored with trying to keep up!

I too love the hay on the floor, last year Barb put down the snow...GEESH...what a nightmare, it was stuck all over my soaps, you can imagine it, right!!!!

When I had my first store, I was always outside raking leaves into the neighbors thought I had flipped, but when they saw the final product, they loved it and never questioned me again...they just know I've gone round the bend...HA!!! Some things never change!!!
