I started with two bins of bottles.
Here are a few I decided to sell.
Brown Clorox bottles, mustard, and olive jars.
More mustard jars and a few ketchup bottles.
Vinegar dressing bottles with little handles.
I went through the bin of books I have been saving back and read through all of them.
I could only stand to part with these.
The sweet blue French textbooks had to have vintage French ribbons tied to them.
American French textbooks.
The red Water Babies is the third impression of the first printing.
Dorothy's House Party has a lovely cover.
The Hoosier poet, James Whitcomb Riley.
My students loved to recite his poetry - they called him the first rapper.
The book in back is filled with his poetry.
The Reader is designed to help teachers celebrate James Whitcomb Riley Day which I did not know existed.
Of course it was written way back when!
As I became able to drive, I went shopping.
I wanted to dig through other junk.
Found more vintage baby cabinet photos.
A set of Buffalo small restaurant plates.
I may have to keep these for awhile.
Chucks actually found these.
I walked right past them.
Must've been effects of the creeping crud.
Cages for poultry.
And last, but not least, this watercolor of cliffs and sea.
Love, love, love.
Keep, keep, keep.
Look at the frame.
I will be working to move thousands of books for the AAUW Book Fair this weekend, but hope to cram in a shopping trip.
Still in the seventies here and for the next week.
Spring has sprung.
Which means Old Man Winter is lurking in the background to strike us down.
And strike us down hard.
