My newest thrift store find......Kitchen Gardens, illustrated by Tasha Tudor.  I have been looking for it for a while. Some color plates and many black and white illustrations.  I have been looking for it awhile.  Glad to have found it.

Found last week at a local antique fair - - the street sign of the street my family lived on while I was in 3rd and 4th grade.  The dealer said she bought it at a garage sale at the house on the corner of Stanley and California.  My house was next door to the garage sale house.

I just had to have it. It makes me smile.....

My newest thrift store book treasure.....

Titled - "Better Say" a book of helpful suggestions for the correct use of English words and phrases. 

It is a small, pamphlet like book, just 34 pages. I guess in 1909, there were but a few words that needed corrections 

An example...........hope. " I hope he arrived in time." Better say: "I trust he arrived in time." Hope refers to the future; "What a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for?" (Rom. 8:24)

I love old books.
My latest art endeavor.....a college class in watercolor.  Just a beginner, but, I love learning new things and I like watercolor.
