Friday Finds

Fun Vintage and newer books.
Livvy loves to read because it "keeps her brain healthy."
An Old Antique Ledger from the late 1800's.
Just look at how beautiful the hand writing is.
A stack of old worn books.  

I love to go to Thrift Stores, Garage and Estate Sales.  I love finding treasures. I search for things that have already been loved by someone else and now its my turn to appreciate them too.  The girls and I just went to an Estate Sale that had a garage and pantry full of books.  We all searched and picked out ones we liked.  That stack of childrens books isn't even all that we bought.  I will post fun treasures that I find, and may have some available for others to purchase once in a while, so check back on Fridays.

So fun. I love that Livvy wants to make her brian smarter! She even had the vegetable soup the other day because it was health day, that is when Gage decided he wanted some, but not before that! Books are great!

you really do find great treasures! the best is when you find something specifically to re-sell and then i get first dibs on it!! some of my greatest peices in my house are "lindsay finds" like my tufted love seat that i adore! i can't wait to recover it!

I sooo miss the amazing garage and estate sales down there! We really have NOTHING like that up here.....I could really use some old books for decor in my little house!
