Bought these old letters from Jill Suzanne. And now that I've read them, I want more of them.
This couple, in 1936 Texas, was corresponding and planning their summer wedding.
I believe she (Nan) taught at Austin College
(that's how the newspaper clipping listed the college name).
He was Leroy Kimbrough and worked in the lab for Hoovers
developing a sweetener in Beaumont.
He made 82 cents an hour!
I'm trying to just let it go.
They were getting married that summer...
so I'm sure their letters stopped at that point.
I may have to write to Suzanne.....
They are all over the place between Round Top and Warrenton.
The current issue of Flea Market Decorating has that one that has the heart shapes!
I just went to their site to get the url and I see
that their 2nd issue will be out next February!!
You know what that means?
That means that the "current issue" I bought this week
is one I already have. It all looked new to me.
My friend, Julia, was pointing out to me
how much n e u t r a l is out "there"...
and all the burlap and linen....
I could've bought stamped burlap and stamped linen and made my own pillow,
(they had a ton)
but I would not have done that cording....
so paid sweet little old man $40 for the pillow
(although he was going to sell it to me for $35, but his daughter said it was $40).
I didn't want her to fuss at him.Do you make purchases to make people happy, too?
