fun graphics on this old box of corsage pins I brought back from an estate sale! Have you priced pins lately? They are so expensive new that I often bring them home from such sales.
One of the sales I attended was a house FULL of these molded plastic all hangings. And I mean, several on the walls in every room. I've never seen such a large collection! I brought these home with me, because I love the swallow motif. They look great painted a matte color.
Not so odd: a couple of books. I loved the photo on the front of Poemcrazy -- plus, it boasts a review on top from one of my favorite writers who writes about writing, Ann Lamott of Bird by Bird fame.
The book on the right is a guide, How To Draw Trees, and I really liked the clever illustrations.
It's from the 1950's and the author, Frederick Garner, really went to town with his drawings.
I liked how he slipped in some amphibians...
I think he might have had the story of Eve and the apple tree on his mind at one point...SQUIRREL!
