Last week when my sister was here we went to an antique show and flea market. There were all kinds of interesting things there. I bought a few and Lindy bought a few and some we just enjoyed looking at and walked on by. I’m at the point in my life where I have to remind myself that if I don’t have a place to put it, it is best to leave it. I sure would have loved to have the very old shabby white doll bed, but I have no grandchildren so really….what was I going to do with that!  Don't ya just love it?

I attached a photo of some of the things I purchased…. A couple old Bobbsey Twins books with colors that excite me….I love to stack old books, a lovely pitcher with roses on it, (I don’t really have a place to put it, right now it is on my mantle) it was pretty enough that I’m sure I’ll find a place for it. I like old metal flower frogs so I added one of those to the collection (I guess three makes a collection, right?). When I took this photo last week I had forgoten to put the shabby picture frame I purchased with the rest of the stuff that I bought. It was made from the trim of an old house. I don’t have anything in it yet but I’m looking for just the right photo to complete it.

The girls loved their copies of "The Bobbsey Twins"! I gave them the entire history of the book....age, print date...etc.! We started to read one of the books last night....about GYPSIES. One of the girls wasn't so sure she liked those "scary people". She was near tears when she went to bed!!! I sure didn't know THE BOBBSEY TWINS would have that effect! We'll have to read more tomorrow night to make sure the story gets better!
