The contents of the estate sale that I attended on Saturday belonged to a retired Catholic priest. As you can imagine the house was filled with religious articles, statues of saints, bibles, prayer books, and of course household items. The priest was well traveled and had many beautiful items. The house was loaded with things for sale, and many people were in attendance.
I was thrilled when I entered the basement and found a table full of vintage books.
1968 Child's book: Evening Prayers
by Ester Wilkins & Pictures by Eloise Wilkins.
Look at those chubby little fingers
that softly stroke the baby robins head.
The prayer reads:
A little bird fell from the nest.
I put him back with all the rest.
I heard him faintly cheeping.
The nest is high upon the limb.
Dear God, will You take care of him?
I leave him in your keeping.
I like the art work of Eloise Wilkins.
This book was published in 1942.
1945 baby book.
Filled with wonderful images.
A medal for the babies crib.
This Coro signed charm bracelet has figural
charms representing the ten commandments.
Each charm has a Roman numeral,
this is the fifth commandment,
Honor thy father and thy mother.
Looking forward to see what everyone else found this week.
