One of particular interest was this book
- LIVE - LAUGH - LOVE -
Upon opening it, you find a void space.
A 'hole in the story' if you will.
...this has unnerved me a bit as to the upcoming 2014.
I KNOW these books are meant to fit on your shelf with others and safeguard valuables, BUT...
I'm just glad that there was a 'security blanket' (of sorts) included inside!!!

Another giftie that I have been spending a LOT of time researching, arranging, and admiring...
Hatpin Holder with 25+ hatpins from
HISTORY: since '99 I have worked part-time for an old Downtown Hardware / Antique store. About the same time the Owner purchased a "Box-Lot" of HatPins, and has given me a couple of them for birthdays and Xmas ever since for my collection. We have always joked that 'eventually' I would have ALL of them... Recently, they have sold the buildings and will be closing out the businesses by the end of Nov. 2014. I receive this Xmas gift with a note "I told you that you would end up with all of them."
