Photo Hunt #7: Antique



This week's theme is "Antique".


As a participant in the weekly Photo Hunter Saturday Photo Scavenger Hunt, I found a favorite item to represent "ANTIQUE". Being a cat of thirteen years, I don't have many possessions and none of them are antiques. Therefore, I had to raid Mom's stash of stuff looking for things that look old. I found three items: a Singer sewing machine from the 1930s or 40s; a Bulova wristwatch given to Mom by her great-grandmother (it looks like it's from the 1940s); and a book that was published in 1919. I went with the book, 'cuz it's the oldest. It's a leather volume of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's "Tales of a Wayside Inn" published by Macmillan Pocket Classics. This book is important to Mom because it was given to her by our Aunt Montie.

A treasured memory and a beautiful antique. Haven't read the story, but I'm sure it's wonderful. Happy weekend.

I love old books! Great choice.

I like old leather-bound books. For some reason, they are good to sniff. And this one is extra-special since it is important to yer Mommie!

They bound pocket books with leather? That's neat (or gross depending on your point of view). Fascinating for sure!

Love to have this to add to my late father's book collections.

Have a great weekend!

Mom simply *loves old books, and thinks this is indeed special, especially since it came from your mom's aunt.
