The past few years we have been collecting old books. After my last find at The Bins, I had to share with you some of my favorites. Enjoy! These are very RARE and so fun to look through!
"Embracing several thousand thoroughly tested and approved recipes, care and culture of children, birds and house plants; flower and window gardening, ect: with many valuable hints of home decoration."
I LOVE IT!!!
The following page:
IN MAKING THE HOME A PLACE OF PEACE, COMFORT
THIS BOOK IS RESPECTFULLY DEDICATED.
Better yet... THESE PICTURES WERE LEFT INSIDE!
What an insight to the time the book was written...

This one I bought online from a Goodwill store several years ago. It was quoted in another book I was reading at the time and knew I wanted to find a copy. Thanks to the internet I could!
It is from 1912:
Who share with me the desire to accomplish
something for the uplift of humanity."
This book is truly amazing!! It is a little more geared to the Woman's Movement of the time and written from a personal account. From "Selecting a Mate, Motherhood, Child Training, A Woman of Forty, Hints for the Complexion"..ect :)
Last but NOT least...
I actually read about half of this book so far.. it gives a great perspective of
American History from 1901
which to seems a little more accurate!
And it is illustrated. :)
So we might just go to The Bins today.. I look forward to maybe finding more book treasures! I am reminded of the verse below. Thank you Lord!
Matthew Chapter 6: 19- 21
Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
