Ah, Vintage...What? Wait Just a Minute!

The teacher's lounge is the depository for things you don't want anymore.  On any given day you might find old candy, old magazines, old clothes, old teacher treasures....
Today was a treasure day!

You know I love felt and making things out of felt, so when I walked in and saw this laying on the table (which means it is up for grabs, so don't ever lay anything down and go to the bathroom, because it probably won't be there when you get back) and knew it was meant to be mine....




Sweet, right?  A couple of the pages were falling out and they all have that nice vintage yellow and slightly crisp thing going on....you know, where if you bend a page it might break.


Several cool projects and a section on tips and how-to...
For example, one of the tips is:  Knot the end of the thread, unless the directions tell you knot to...oh, I mean Not.  :-)

Now I wanted to know just how special and vintage my book was.  You know that sometimes you find very valuable treasures in most unlikely places.  So, I check the copyright date...


What?  Wait....since when is 1982 vintage?

What comes after vintage?  I am so past vintage!!!!!  Wonder what I am worth????

This whole thing just gave me the giggles.
Are you vintage?

Ha! Well, if 1982 is vintage, then I am well on my way to being antique. I'm not sure that I'm yellowed and crisp, though I can definitely be crusty.

I'm so pleased this book found you.

What a fun find!!! You're so funny. You make me smile.

I have a weakness for old school books...usually much older than this one.

Lucky you....I passed vintage some time ago! But, antiques are loved, too!

It's the magic of surviving long enough to become vintage or antique!

LOL! WAY vintage. LOL! I love that her name was Donna, too! Seems like a perfect little gift for you to find. Look forward to seeing what you create from here! blessings and hugs ~ tanna

I thought the same thing, Tanna...
There ae more Donnas than Tannas, but not that many altogether. I mean in all my years of teaching, I never taught a Donna...ora Tanna!
