What I really wanted to show you today was my all time favorite find at a thrift sale. I saw this and a matching night stand table and I snapped them up. They were originally hospital night stands. They are metal. All I needed to do was give them a good scrub and I changed the knob. I got them for $15 each. I took one look at them, put my hand on them, looked at my beloved Mr. T and asked him how he felt about repainting the bedroom and offered the good gentleman my cash all within 10 seconds. Done deal. The next week we went to Benjamin Moore to look at historical colours and painted up our little bedroom. I think its 12X12. That isn't a problem, really, how much room does a person need to sleep? I made a new bed skirt to tie the colors all together and declared it finished.
Oh and if you are a librarian and curious about the books at the bottom? The green one is called "Studies in Citizenship" by Mc Caig. It says it's the Saskatchewan Edition. 1925. It has useful topics such as What our government does for us and Rights and Duties of Citizen's. Hmm, I think I may take a closer look at that and post about it sometime. Could be pretty funny.
The blue book is my Dad"s "The Coral Island" which was first written in 1857. He was given this book in 1931 for Christmas from Edith McTavish . . hmm I wonder who she was. The interesting thing about this book is that my mom and dad took it along on one of their last camping trips together and my dad read the whole thing to her. He came back and proudly announced that he had finally gotten through the whole book. Oh Dad, you were so funny and sweet.
The last book on the pile was the first Bible that my beloved's parents gave him. He received it October 18, 1969. I'm curious about the date since it holds no significance that I know of. Maybe he needed a new Bible for Sunday School.
Oh and if you are curious about the baby pictures, those would be my beloved and I. Well, I'm off to cut out a dress.
