antique books...



as I filter through my book collection...I am filling my studio shelves...


I am having to make brutal decisions- there is only so much room! (this couple is a "keeper"- my grandparents...)


It is the old books that I am having troubles parting with...


I have purged quite a few...some are headed to SPLENDID on Tuesday...(more if I can bear it...)


I am having a really hard time parting with the antique ledgers and kids books...or encyclopedias...or antique anatomy books...or antique bird books...or books with old etchings...

Oh,
I do feel your pain! I've sold quite a few books of late (seems a lot of people love books!).
Of course there are some that I will never be able to part with, but others I know I'm ready to pass on.
LOVE the photo of your sweet grandparents! I can see you in them......:)

It is hard to simplify, I just donated a bunch on my computer redo room and have my studio and garage to go! I hear you.
Keep up the good work!
