Thrift Share - Love a Good Book

I had a busy week of life and slow week of Thrifting.  I only made it to 1 thrift store & 2 yard sales this weekend, but I managed for find 3 really great books.  As you may already know, I have somewhat of a book obsession...but I'm happy to add these to my collection! 

This American Indian Tales and Legends is a Children's Book with AMAZING Illustrations!

Bunker Hill in Los Angeles has undergone a revitalization in recent years, but these images of how it was years ago are really special.

Need some fun imagery to Spark you Imagination?  Idea Art can help.  
This vintage gem is so much fun!!!

 Kinda like todays clip art...It's designed so that its use can be extended far beyond the original conception with the flexibility and adaptability of the art represented.  I wish I could find a whole series since this is Vol 4!  Has anyone else ever heard of these?
 The ideas for this gal are..."Excess baggage slowing you down", "Bon voyage" & "Well traveled" to name a few.  
I've already done a few sketches out of this book & thinks it's so divine!

I'm linking up to Apron Thrift Girls Thrift Share Monday post again, so drop by and check out all of the other amazing thrifty finds there :-)

Have a great week ~ Lara
