1. The day’s treasures, 2. Russian Children’s Stories “Skazki”, 3. Russian Folk Tales, 4. Alice’s Adventures, 5. Little Helper, 6. 1940’s Hairstyles, 7. Sewing Made Easy, 8. Embroidery: A handbook, 9. Vonnegut
These are the latest additions to my little library, purchased from the semi-annual Friends of the Seattle Public Library Booksale. Most of the books that I brought home were Russian children’s books. (Even those are a reach for my limited vocabulary.) I love Russian fairy and folk tales! I also found some great craft books and a few math books. I didn’t have time to rummage through the fiction sections much, but Breakfast of Champions did find its way into my box somehow.
Also, you see a few of my finds at the rummage sale that was set up next to the book sale; a yellow checked tablecloth, cute little yellow footstool, a red glass vase, and super-cute red carafe. [My absolute favorite colors lately are yellow paired with grey (thanks, Amy Butler!) and red with teal.]
A nice day of garage-sales, a little flea market, and cupcakes was had as well. And the sun shone in an uncharacteristically Spring fashion. It was good.
