One of the (Many) Reasons I Love the Internet
This is the front cover of the most darling vintage baby book I found recently (there are more photos of it in my flickr photos). I am selling it on eBay, and I got the nicest email yesterday.
It seems the current high bidder had this original album, which her mother had completed for her when she was a baby. Two years ago, she lost her mother, and then a year ago, the album was destroyed in a flood of her basement. Being a scrapbooker, she had planned to do a layout (or several) about the album, but then she found the real thing on eBay.
She was just emailing me to say thank you for listing it.
That is one of my very favorite things about the internet-so many things are so quickly available to us nowadays.
I have found books by my great aunt and uncle, magazine articles by my grandfather (who died when my dad was seven) and even a magazine featuring my grandmother on the cover.
And now I am able to give this woman her baby book back.
It really made my day!
