These flash cards were a wonderful find for 
me...I've never found red numbers before! 
They'll be great for crafting and display!

The Tiny Tim book cover is perfect for Christmas decorating...

Finally, I found some wonderful large 
vintage French picture flashcards...

  8. Oh man, those vintage French flashcards must have been pretty exciting to find! We did a little antiquing on our road trip but have ramped back a bit on purchasing lately especially when my husband filled the car with my Dad's old tools that were gong to get garage sale-ed.
    Turne out we stopped in the antique store in Vicksburg that "Borat" had stumbled his way into in the movie and got an interesting story about it from the owner.
    Happy decorating season to you!
