Here's the view from the living room. The bookcases are located just outside Hubby's office. It's not much of a view, but at least the carpet clean!! The next picture shows a few of my collections on display, everything vintage: Children's books of all kinds, Little Golden Books, just a few children's toys, textbooks (one-room school house era), Bibles, curious books.
A few examples of my curious books. Handy Helps or How to do Things, published compliments of the Calumet Baking Power Co, no date available. The title page describes this book as "a collection of useful hints and suggestions for the housewife...valuable alike to the young bride and the gray haired matron." Hmmm...I should fall in there somewhere. Housekeeping Hints by Duraclean: 137 ways to make housecleaning a b-r-e-e-z-e, published in 1964 by Duraclean Company known for "flower fresh" cleaning for rugs, wall-to-wall carpeting and upholstering. I have not read either book. Maybe one day I'll post some helpful household hints. We'll both learn something!!
