WHAT IS ON YOUR WORK TABLE

I wanted to share with you what is on my work table as of late.
I was going through some boxes and found me some folders that had some very antique pages from some very sorry books I purchased at our local auction house a few years back.
These are images from a Harper's New Monthly Magazine book dated 1856, YUP I said 1856.  Let me do some quick math for you, 157 years old.



Last weekend I rode to the dump with Mr. Nook, I do this sometimes.  
A table was set up outside the attendants office and low and behold were all of these.  All new and in the boxes still.  Thought I would help myself to a few.



More images from the book.  I am in the planning stages of creating tags, theme "Antique"  I am excited about my project and will be offering them for sale when ready.
I will keep you updated.

What is on your work table as of late?
Thanks for stopping by.
Michele

If you try and buy those medals they aren't cheap. What a great find! I hope you scan some of those images so you can use them for years to come! Can't wait to see what you do with them!
