|Well....truth to be told.....I couldn't resist......|
|I went back on Sunday to the last day of the library book sale. Everything was $1.00.|
I wondered if it was worth going and what would be left....
Yes, it was definitely worth going. Here are my shopping carts --
no, actually those are not mine but it looks like some people get more carried away than even I do..
|This one is mine.....and I got seventeen books for $17.00. And actually the dollar sale was more fun than the members preview. No lines, fewer crowds and cheaper books.|
I've got to remember that next year.
|There is just something about foreign language dictionaries I cannot resist.|
|I like to think I can speak French.|
The French don't seem to think so though...
|I found two very cool old yearbooks -- score! One was from 1936....|
and the other from the 50's sometime...$1!
|Lots of lovely autographs and comments too.|
|I have been collecting vintage French dictionaries for years...who could resist those pages with pictures?|
|I was hoping for a French scarf-tieing tutorial......|
|I think this was my favorite find on Dollar Day....the beautiful graphic caught my eye...|
|I snatched it up....|
|....to discover it is a book on graphic design lettering -- in Cyrillic .....so cool. Published and printed in Moscow. I wonder, how did it make it's way here to San Francisco? We do have a pretty large Russian population here.|
|I cannot bring myself to tear this one up. At least not for a while.|
|But in some cases -- tear I did!|
|My worktable is a work-in-progress. I am tearing up books, sorting the pages, making piles and making things.|
Handmade envelopes with yearbook pages.
I've been busy! But it seems like I have been sending out more mail than I have been receiving.
I better see a good mail day real soon.
