Each day of my 31 days of writing gets better and better. Today was no exception as I browsed through my childhood books……..time spent with old friends.
I’ve had some of these books since I was 2 years old. My great grandmother would take me to the “corner store” and buy me a book and then read it to me…..probably several times.
I’m pretty sure you can see the price on this one book……but if not…..it was 25 cents…….25 cents!! Can we buy anything today for 25 cents? Oh yes, a huge piece of bubblegum out of a gumball machine, maybe.
In keeping with my decluttering, cleaning, and reorganizing AND creating comfort in my home……..I decided to get these books out and when the grandchildren come, they can choose a few for me to read to THEM. And someday, they’ll be able to say….time spent with old friends.
Just a couple more shots. I have a recessed area (closet) in my living room. Thus, the curtain. I placed the old school chair, grabbed a doily and a quilt, a couple baskets for the books, and DONE!
You can tell they’re well worn and were definitely well loved. And now they can be again….for my grandchildren.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Tomorrow will bring even more.
Hugs and Have a Creative Week!!
