Dear Mary....


I found this sweet little autograph book at an estate sale last week. It says it was Mary's from when she was 15 years old received in 1925. I enjoyed paging through the quirky little words of advice from friends and family. I thought you might like to take a look.

I love it! I love old postcards for the same reason....a bit of someone's history. Although I always feel compelled to find these people to give it back to them!

Such a sweet treasure! I love peeks of the past.

What a fun thing to find and page through! Doesn't it make you want to see pictures of her or learn more about Mary? Thanks for sharing!

That is just precious! The little rhymes are so sweet. Sometimes I wonder how families can part with items like this. Glad you found it to treasure.

That is a great piece, Kari. Interestingly, I just found one from about the same time while in Canada. I could not resist, ever though it was a little more than I wanted to spend.
Hugs,
