Oh, The Treasures You Find!

In cleaning out some closets I have found some cool stuff--like this scrapbook from 1909 filled with newspaper articles about events Annie  Oakley was to participate in.  I hadn't seen it in years & feared it was lost after one of the various moves of things from one house to another.  It was in the back corner of my spare room closet--under a garment bag.

My grandfather worked for several gun manufacturers and had met Annie Oakley.  i remember hearing stories about her when I was small ( both of my grandfathers passed before I was 8 )
Vee, did you notice that this event was in Goldsboro, NC?

Wow Ann! I love finding treasures like that! We'll be back at it this summer.

Thanks, Becky! That means more cleaning out for you? I keep sorting through stuff & trying to organize--hope my brother wants some stuff--he's the one with kids to pass things down to!
