Vintage Thingies Thursday ~ A Treasury Of Thoughts



I got this book of "thoughts" at an estate sale recently. Looks like it was in a library for families/workers of the Southern Pacific Railroad (?). I think I've already found my favorite paragraph in the whole book, even though I've only skimmed through it. (You can click on the picture to enlarge it). Funny how the words in a book published in 1877, still ring true. Find more Vintage Thingies every Thursday at : Colorado Lady's Blogspot

  1. A book of thoughts..., how charming! I love the "library rules"
    We who live in small cottages know that they are special gifts don't we? I wouldn't trade mine for any mansion.

    Be sure this book is out somewhere for everyone to read.
