Treasures.....









Treadmills
These were won on Ebay.........YEA!!!!
They were so much better in person than the pics provided!
The covers of the books are FABULOUS......
and will be a welcome part of some up and coming collages:D
The illustrations were charming as well....
created by C.M. Burd and Violet Moore Higgins:)
One book was published in 1916 and the other 1921!
What a find.....
Also, I purchased two old Tobacco cards from
"Hard A Port-Cut Plug" Macun-Zimmer Tobacco Co. Inc.
The women featured on these cards are my kind of gals.....LOL
with some meat on their bones....ha...ha!
I can see them gracing some Valentines this year...can't you?

I'm really loving the tobacco girls...and the books are "charming"...thinking of the time they were published and the illustrations...it's a wonderful feeling when something we loved through a photograph is even better when we hold it in our hands!!

Happy New Year to you Linda...may it be filled with love, laughter, joy and inspiration..in abundance!!
