Just never know...

...what treasures you will find. I was flipping through one of the music books and look what was tucked between the pages.It is in awesome condition! I called the church in Ann Arbor and will be sending it in the mail shortly to them. Every time I look at these old books it's like going back in time.

In one song book (from 1875) that I am keeping there was a card that they got in their coffee as well as 2 little pictures of women in the dress of that time that was in with their cigarettes. I'm keeping these as well. They are in excellent condition from being between the pages of the book all these years. When I get the chance I will take some pictures of these. Needless to say I am being careful to flip through the pages of the books now. Oh, yeah, in between the pages of an old (1940's to 50's) coloring book I found sheet music with a picture of Bing Crosby, the song is "Now is the Hour". Cool, huh?!! In this lot of books and sheet music was also the little paper they handed out at the 1892 High School graduation in Greenville, Ohio. Eight people graduated that year. I will be taking this to the principle this week sometime. So excited!

Good Evening Cheryl,
Wow, you sure lucked up. Where do you find such things like this? All of my blogging friends seem to find alot of good bargains and antique things. I must be living in the wrong part of the world. LOL. I can't wait to see the pictures you will be taking and sharing with us. I love looking at pictures of old photos. Well, thought I would drop by and see how you are doing. Take care my friend and have a great evening. May God Bless You and Yours.

Hugs,
Karen H.

That is so cool that you found those things, and really nice that you are taking/sending them to people to whom they have sentimental value.

OH I love all your finds! I wonder now that they are exposed if they will yellow or not? DO you have to spray them with that archival stuff or is that bad too? The value of these is beyond measure - it is so cool you are sending them to their "places" for lack of a better word! Plus hangin on to some things, I would too - you have some mighty cool things in your books!
