Dad and his wife Ann have been doing some cleaning lately.
Lucky me gets the fruits of their labor!
They sent us two boxes of old books.
This condensed version of US History is dated 1872.
I love the classics!
Les libres en francais!
This book is very old as you can see when you look at the cover page in the next photo:).
Lovely old music books.
This copy of Ivanhoe is beautiful.
This was one of my favorites...
as was this copy of Aunt Jo's Scrap Bag by Louisa May Alcott.
There were several lovely illustrations in this book.
The problem is which book to choose?
THE KREATIV BLOGGER AWARD
was graciously awarded to me by Katie at
As part of this award I am to list 7 things about myself that you don't already know and then I am to award it to 7 deserving bloggers.
Let's do the easy part first-7 things about me.
1. I prefer pasta and veggies to meat.
2. I love ice cream.
3. My favorite color is blue.
4. Although I love Jane Austen, Charles Dickens is my favorite author.
5. My favorite modern day authors are Dorethea Benton Frank and Pat Conroy.
6. I've been trained in interior redesign.
7. I love to jog.
OK, here's the part where I wimp out. I can't possibly choose 7 bloggers from my list so I am breaking the rules and awarding this to everyone on my favorite bloggers list.
BTW, I still can't get award banners to transfer so I apologize for not posting it.
Please visit Katie@lebeaupeonvictorien blogspot-you will love it!
Thanks again Katie:)!
