Sunday, Sunday, Sunday!

I found the most AMAZING thing today at the flea market - the shop I went to last week to pick up some books for illustrations over at Arachneas Attic had a book from 1902 on the lost art of letter writing! And, as if that weren't awesome enough - I also got a caligraphy pen from the turn of the century and an ink well to go with it.

It's all I can do right now not to annoy my husband with "Can we go to Curry's? Can we go to Curry's? Can we go to Curry's?" and jumping up and down like a little school girl.

So I got the lot I described above, as well as about five other books for the other blog AND - *fingers crossed* he has a bunch more in a wicked box for sale - I'm hoping I can trade with him and give him some of my non illustrated books from the turn of the century and hopefully I can get the box of inkwells and pens - and my hubby has his eye on this old helmet they have there as well (like a knights helmet).

I'm so excited! I'll take pictures of everything tomorrow to share with everyone!

To tide you all over, here's todays stationery:

Wow wow, nice find! I went to a yard sale this morning & got a bunch of old greeting cards for only a dollar - and a lot of them are really nice! Really made my day! Bonne lecture!
