A Little Treasure






Sweetheart found this book for the boys. It is a book that contains copies of all the "Wide Awake" magazine issues from the prior year. Its copyright date is 1885. It is in excellent shape. I've enjoyed skimming through it and look forward to reading from it to the boys. Don't you just love the gold in the peacock feather design on the cover?
Go visit Kelli's for more fun Friday Show and Tells.

We lived in Vicenza Italy for 3 years. It is about 35 mils from Venice. Love the books.

I recently posted some old pics from Italy on my blog. My S&T is over there too.
