And I forgot to write about my Quickies project or a painted furniture project.
But suddenly it is Friday, and I do have a few finds.
My cousin is downsizing her Christmas angels so of course she gave them to me. She also gave me an envelope filled with memories - I will share that later.
I have been sorting books for the book fair.
Trying to save some stuff from the recycling plant.
Like this box of Nat Geo's.
Chucks likes to read them.
And this box of Southern Living's.
Distressed Donna likes to read them.
I am working in special books where books with a connection to our area and state, old books, book sets, and new editions are priced differently than the general section.
I buy some of the discards like this French Reader's Digest Grand Atlas Mondial.
(Or World Atlas)
All in French - great addition to our atlas collection.
I had to save Simone, Louisette, and Julia - even though the book is in poor shape.
Two more cookbooks.
Novels with pretty covers.
Mostly Daphne Du Maurier.
Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew.
Hardy Boys and Perry Mason.
In the general section there are thousands and thousands of books. Paperbacks are fifty cents and hard backs are one dollar.
People travel for miles to attend the sale.
If you are within a hundred miles and love books, it will be worth coming the first Friday and Saturday in March.
The camera was willing to let me transfer all my photos to the computer.
And it takes beautiful photos still.
However I cannot see the photos because the screen is blank white.
The poor thing has been dropped numerous times, painted more than I want to confess, and took a brief dip in a bucket of water over the past seven years.
I may have to purchase a new torture victim.
Back to sorting books and looking up prices.
