You never know what you'll find at a flea market
or antique mall.
That, to me, is part of the excitement...
looking through boxes,
digging in drawers,
turning over old pages in a dusty book.
What to me holds magic,
can be discarded
But for just a few dollars
I made them mine.
We found these very old lithograph prints
last year in the back of a furniture booth.
Undoubtedly they had been hidden
in a dresser drawer
for many years.
When found, they were more of a bother than a treasure.
So there they were,
for a tiny fraction of their worth;
Their age is showing...
foxing covers the fragile paper,
but they are timeless.
An unexpected gift
