Last weekend, Hannah and I went to a few pretty nice garage sales in Oklahoma City. The last one we went to had leftovers from an estate sale of people in their 90's.
Most of my deconstructed books are Reader's Digest books, not terribly old. I love finding the really old ones that are bound in sections.
I'm having a hard time with these, though - for one thing - the subject matter is really good. One is an anatomy book with wonderful illustrations! Another is a history of the 1800s year by year. They probably will NOT be ripped up and deconstructed.
I also found ironstone and silver plate for cheap prices there...but that's another post.
This week, we have some lovely, clever, charming features again. I have NEVER struggled to find enough good stuff to feature - quite the opposite. We may not have quantity, but we have quality here...thank you for that.
Susan from Must Love Junk shared a "cubby thing" in a lovely aqua color...she has a black belt in creating vignettes, and this one is no exception.
Patti from Ivy and Elephants charmed us with a fork and spoon, and there was no food involved. I had a hard time choosing which I liked better...maybe this one.
Roxie from Sweet Vintage of Mine shared the most charming potting sink in the world! Stop by to see what clever thing she did for the skirt...

Word for the Day:
24 And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works,
25 not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some,
but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.
