Hello new and old friends. Its time to get back to some real blogging.
Hi Julia, thanks for hosting organizing and entertaining at the Stamping Ground
The spare table in the kitchen is loaded with old receipts,as well as notes in my fathers hand. Some even going back to the 50's.
My Mom had them set for the burn pile. I was at first just going to sort through and grab some random signatures, old stamps etc. for scrapbooking.
I couldn't stop there. Some are very interesting to read. I am compiling a group to sandwich into books for the children. I am sorting according to birth dates. Kind of a 'this is how much things cost on the day you were born.' Please feel free to let me know what YOU might do with the stacks of paper and hand written tax related notes I have rescued.
I am using an old rusty trunk for the covers:
It can not be recovered as is so
I am stripping off book size portions
Gotta LOVE those handles I will be adding bits of rusty 'other' things I have picked last year. Does anyone have any idea as to the kind of glue I can use on rusty metal?
It is a huge project. But, I never do things by half hearted effort. LOL Wish me luck and please comment, I am open to ideas???
I am hooking up with an old bloggy friend 'Julia' who hosts a weekly
