Norman Rockwell

The workweek is complete! Today on my lunch break I went to an unexpected Estate Sale! Yeah! I was actually late getting back to work but at an estate sale you really need to pick and peek everywhere! Either way I felt a little rushed but thats okay. I did find a Norman Rockwell 50 favorites copyright 1978! It's in great condition, I was thrilled to pay $4 for it! I would have to say he is a favorite of mine! I think one of the things I like about him is that I can relate to his work in stories I've been told by my mother and grandmother. I also like is every day real life work. It's so real to me! Over the past few years I've picked up a few of his books, a calender, a plate and some amazing placemats. All second-hand of course. Ha Ha, its the way to go. Especially because I love the hunt! I hope you enjoy the pics as much as I do!


One of the placemats, how sweet!

One thing I forgot to say is how amazing I think it would be to live in the 1950's or 60's for a day. Things were so different back then. I'm glad I have family and friends stories and pictures to share! :)
