Vintage Thingies Thursday

I love when Thursday rolls around because it brings back memories. I am participating in Vintage Thingies Thursday hosted by the Apron Queen.

This is an old book I found in my hopeless chest of goodies, 'The Story of Jesus,' the copyright date on this is 1934.


It was given to my Grandma when she was 7yrs old. My Grandma gave it to mom who in turn gave it to me.


The pages are a construction like paper. The binding has come off the side but the top cover is still attached and I have the back cover.


I will eventually give this to one of my girls, probably the Diva, not sure when tho after all it took mom 23yrs to give it to me.

What a wonderful family heirloom. I looks like it's been read by several generations. I love the way it's been signed off, and handed down. Perfect

Wonderful heirloom. I agree- wait until they're in their 20s. You don't appreciate things when youre younger.

In 23 years, your diva will be ready to really appreciate the history of the book. I love family treasures. And I really like them when I can pass them on to someone else.

Oh my gosh! I didn't know the bible dated all the way back to 1934! how cool!

Seriously though.. you should look into having it rebound and then passing it down. That would be totally awesome. :)
