So, yesterday, we walk into church and there's a big sign saying Happy Mother's Day. Teen says, "Oh, I didn't know today was Mother's Day". (Ya, right!) . . . "Thanks for getting pregnant!"
Saturday we went to the Library Book Sale in our town. Teen got a few Star Trek books and a couple of old anime videos (vcr). Mister got the J. Vernon McGee Thru The Bible set for $7 (original list price $200). I found a lot of old-time goodies. Here are a few.
Poems by Eliza Cook. No date but most probably 1800's.
Our Village by Miss Mitford, 1870. (Always wanted to read this.)Congress (Yeast Powder) Cook Book, 1894. (Love the red!)
A Calendar of Dinners with 613 Recipes including The Story of Crisco, 1913. Obviously put out by Crisco; I can't wait to read all about it!
These next two aren't old, but they're goodies!
The Smithsonian Gardener's Journal, 1987.
And a trusty Martha Stewart Good Things from Tag Sales & Flea Markets. (I kept flipping this image around, but the 'flippin' thing' won't go straight up, so I finally left it sideways!)
