As I mentioned in the last blog post, I had found some old scrapbooks belonging to an unknown woman named Jean at the local thrift store.  They are full of scrappy treasures…here are a few samples from just one of them:

This made me cry a little.

The only thing I was surprised about was the lack of recipes.  Out of all eight scrapbooks there were a total of 0 recipes and nothing about food.

  1. A “blog” of its day. I love it – we often Find stuff like this at Roberts barn and I could sit for hours and look and read. Thanks for sharing your treasure! ❤️

  2. That’s neat. Very interesting to see what someone collected and now it’s a treasure b/c of the history given.
    You got a good eye for spotting neat stuff!😃
