Ohh.. the treasures!

Yesterday I visited my aunt and she gave me an antique photo album to scan. Yeay!! Like a child in a candy shop! Soooo... I have about 60 new images for you! Over the next few weeks I'll post them. Now, I can give her the album back and she'll let me take another.. and another.. and another.. you cannot begin to imagine the amount of antique images, postcards, letters, and ephemera that she has! Wooohoooo!!

I scanned in some more dictionary pages for you.. the Halloween page spread is so much fun! Words like 'harum-scarum' and 'happy'. I also rescanned the letter, sans the ephemera. I thought perhaps you might like to use it as a background without my 'stuff' on top.

bits and pieces..

Some tidbits and an antique form letter from 1887. Anther dictionary page is below.. I'll try to keep those coming along with other images as well.

(the form letter is LARGE so give the page time to load if needed..)

Dictionary Pages

These pages are from a 1923 Webster's Dictionary. It is tiny! The dictionary itself measures about 5 1/2" x 4 1/4". Hope you like them! I'll scan in more pages as time allows.. any requests for certain words? It is a 'selected' dictionary so the vocabulary is limited but most of the standard words are there.

It's one of those days...

It is a day for reverance, thought and forward thinking. I wonder if anyone in 1887 would have foreseen the turmoil our planet is in now when they created these ads? We have come so far, but also not very far at all...

Some Antique Advertisements for you...

I scanned these from an 1887 Farm and Home newspaper that came from my grandfather's attic. The mice got the corners but you get the images! (minus the musty smell.. bllleeeaaaaagghhhg..)
