On my way home from house-sitting for a week I stopped at a garage sale that claimed it had "antiques and stuff" - ha ha!
I always gravitate towards boxes of books, and I need another book like I need a hole in the head, but this one I couldn't resist.
The preface states this to be a second edition (of one of my all-time favorite books) and is dated "December 1847." It cost me a whole 50 cents. It's in some disrepair but it is 163 years old.
This little guy...
Was - unbelievably - the only thing I took home with me from the Vintage Gathering sale last weekend. I chose it because it's smaller by about half than any of the older floral frogs I've ever seen.
It cost two dollars.
Currently it's holding a photo of my brother and his girlfriend. :)
