Bit of a dusty Marbled Monday here, as well as an unusually stained one. Hurts to see these old books flake and tear near the end, but seeing that deep blue murky marbling makes it all worth one last peek.
I'll be posting the full gallery once I'm done taking photos.
For sale: Adorable book "Angeline Goes Traveling," written by Frances Margaret Fox, illustrated by Dorothy Lake Gregory, published by Rand McNally & Company, copyright 1927.
From what I gather, Angeline is part of a group traveling from New England to California in a covered wagon. She and her father are intending to take advantage of the gold rush by setting up a millinery shop with hats from New York. They have many interesting encounters along the way, including Kit Carson saving them from Indians. The millinery shop doesn't work out quite as planned and they end up taking a ship back home. Very interesting read!
Hardcover, 256 pages, measures 7.75" tall x 5.25" wide.
This scrapbook is made with postcards sent to Lula and Fern Wilson in Council Grove, Kansas between 1907 and 1913. The cut up scraps are glued into a book titled, The Rose and the Ring by William Thackeray, originally published in 1854. See more at #floralpostcardbook ♥️

You are going to want to keep your shoes on in here. That’s because I had a bit of an issue yesterday in the kitchen, an issue which I’m sure that I conjured by proudly proclaiming recently that I ‘hadn’t broken anything in actual ages.’ I used to have some vintage blue bowls but I learned yesterday what they look like on the kitchen floor. In pieces. Many, many tiny pieces of actual danger that will no doubt work tirelessly for literally ever to evade my best effort to find them and clean them away and frankly, if they weren’t so dangerous I’d rather admire their tenacity. Sigh. So then I decided that I should sit for a bit, both to let the dust settle and to change the channel on my night. Books don’t break, I thought, and so I grabbed (carefully) for an old cookbook, the kind that can cheer with old recipes for Mock Turtle Soup (pardon who what?) and for Raw Chicken Terrine (what could possibly go wrong?). I was reminded that I’ll never not be cheered by an old cookbook, the kind that has notes in the margins and stains on the pages that hold favourite recipes. I’m still sad about the bowls (that’ll sting for at least as long as I need shoes in the kitchen) but the old books did manage to cheer and besides, tick-tock I feel spring coming on. And that calls for some Mock Turtle Soup (where, exactly, does one procure a ‘mock turtle’) and some Raw Chicken Terrine and so who is up for a welcome-spring dinner party? Come on over. Just don’t forget to keep your shoes on in here...
