Remains of the Day Journal

Altered Dictionary "Life's Blessings"


New art posted

I just finished my pages for my partnership journal with Victoria and added them and a few other art journal pages from my everyday art journal.

I have been staying up late working on my art journals and scrapbooks for upcoming baby & a graduation party for my nephew. So I am keeping busy.


I changed the look of my blog a little

Well work is a little slow tonight . . . so I 've been playing with the new blog templates. I think I like this one, but once I start playing you never know where I might end up.
I also was able to create my signature that I have been struggling with over the past year. That's right I have been blogging for over a year. I had no idea until I looked back to my first post that it had already been one year.

Hope you like the new look . . .

I plan to post some new artwork in the next few days.
til then . . .

My RT 40 yard sale find

It's a 1935 2nd Edition Unabridged International Dictionary

It's huge and in pretty good condition. You would not believe the things I found left in it. Of course I have not looked through every page, but I found 3 uncashed checks to "The Noodle Company" for .98 cents each, from 1980. A small envelope with to the tooth fairy with a tooth in it. :(
Then just little notes from words looked up, I think.
I don't know if I should altered it or not. I will have to think on this for awhile. Inside the front cover is described the different versions that were printed and how much they cost. I have the 17.5 lb. version so it either cost $30.00 or $35.00 back in 1935. I think that was quite a bit of money back then. I paid $20.00 for it. I think I got a pretty good deal!
