I spent part of my afternoon at our local Goodwill Store. It seemed like they had so many new things in since last I was there. I lost myself for hours.
I grabbed all 5 of these wonderful little paper back books and they are in great condition.
Then I spotted this hard cover book and flipped through a few pages. I fell in love with this book on the spot. I will share some of the Christian Nursery Rhymes tomorrow and each Sunday during June (I'll try not to forget). This book is in excellent condition and the copyright is 1977 with First Illustrated Edition 1978 on the inside. I think it will be altight to share here with you. The author is Marjorie Ainsborough Decker. It is inscribed "to J.J. Smith with Love from Grandma and Grandpa 1979". He (or she) took very good care of it. I will too as I share the rhymes with the little ones in my life.
Then I spotted these two little books. Isn't the praying hands book cute?! My nieces name is Angel so she will get the Angels book one day. And the other one was just too cute to pass up.
(See that dark spot on the left of each pic. Do you think maybe I should clean my camera lens? LOL!!)
And even though it is falling apart the pages themselves aren't really all that bad. See that little leaf there....I found several leaves pressed in the pages. There are even some Winnie the pooh coloring pages tucked in the very back. Someone loved this book...
Just as I was telling myself "no more books" I spotted these two little gems.
I can't wait to read the Teddy Bear Philosophy. The introduction is a real hook. Quote: "Therapists are expensive, husbands and wives may stray. Family can make you crazy, and friends can move away. But no matter where you go, no matter what you do, Your Teddy Bear will always be there, Loving and caring for you."
Aww!! Now how sweet is that!! See, you do understand why I HAD to buy it...
This paperback will be a lot of crafty fun I think.... I love weddings and so does my youngest daughter. My son-in-law is a preacher and he has joined many hands together in matrimony. My daughter is often the photographer or decorator and she helps with writing the ceremony. Once I've read this book I'll pass it on to her. She doesn't think so but she really is a pretty crafty little lady. She has designed a wedding cake for a Halloween Wedding (skeleton bride and groom) and puts on a grand party at any budget. It's the big day and even when budgets are tight a wedding day should be one to remember and the bride should feel very special. Yep, that is their philosophy...
So there you have it, my wonderful Thrift Store finds for the day from The Goodwill Store. I bought some clothes too but hey I thought you'd enjoy seeing my books instead. It's hot out and I found some cute skirts and a couple tops.
So when were you last at your local Thrift Store?
Be Happy, Be Healthy, Be You,
