Books of Law

A friend of mine is closing out her husband's law office , he died over a year ago and his partner is retiring so all their law books are going to adopted homes, like baby kittens and puppies.
She offered them to anyone who wanted them.  We had a fish fry last week at church  and Annette used them for table decorations and told everyone that wanted one or ten  to take them home.
I went down to her husbands office and took 2 suit cases plus 3 boxes home . Other wise they were going in a dumpster. I said oh please take them to a thrift store and donate them , people decorate with old books


                                                                               

These all date between 1839 and 1910 , some one already took the 1700's books.
 I stacked them on the floor


I stacked a couple under my cow and the one standing is a 1907 book the year my Grandmother was born.
The book under my blue & white pitcher lamp is Elizabeth Taylor's book " My Love Affair With Jewelry"



Any local blogger want a law book?
                                                            

               
I had a surprise call from a friend said we are coming over for lunch today, we will stop and get lunch be right there, so I went out and cut some fresh flowers for our in door picnic

  9. OH my goodness! I had to do a double take when I saw the law books since I picked up one just like those today at GW. On closer look they are from a different state but same year 1904. Love mine!Mine is all the way from Kansas and I live in Louisiana.
