I love looking at old photos. I ran across pictures of some old cabinet photos that I no longer have. Sometimes when you find old photo albums--the really old ones with tintypes and cabinet photos are still in tact. These photos were in the back of an album and are pictures of "Circus Acts". Really rare to find these! Before I deleted my folder, I had to share. Hope you enjoy.

I know I don't need any more linens, but I have a real BIG weakness for the old textiles! I love vintage embroidered linens, crocheted doilies, and of course quilts. It doesn't matter how many I have--which would be enough to open a linen store!, I just keep accumulating them.

Remember when it was time to shop for school supplies--nothing like new pencils and notebooks! Water colors, erasers, and a new lunchbox!I don't remember ever getting to use this learning game shown below! I love it now--but years ago, I probably would have thought it was hard! Now kids have computers--and have you tried to sell encyclopedias lately? Our parents were so proud to have a complete set of encyclopedias for us to use. Now I can't give them away at estate sales. Times have surely changed!

Well, I can't say that I'm sad summer is almost over. The year started out great, I was posting daily, business was picking up at the shop, one estate sale after the other, then my dad got sick. He kept getting better, then sick, then better, then--he surprised us all and died in June. Life hasn't been the same for my family. I'm trying to get back into the swing of things. But...I'm ready for this summer to end ...maybe in time things will get back to normal. I saw all of these little pennants and souviner spoons and it reminded me of our family vacations. We always got a new pennant for our rooms. Mom purchased a "state" plate for her collections. It seems as though everything has a memory now. Good memories!
Until next time,
