Making A List

Shopping list on an index card:


Sweet wine
Small chain with a padlock & key

cumin seed

Bottom of plant holder

4 pieces of parchment

50 new pins, black bottle
Found in "The Complete Novels of Jane Austen." Published by Modern Library, circa 1937.

EDIT: @mistressmousey tells me it's "Chain" not Chair."

That is lovely & mysterious. A few more words, it's a poem. Hmm. Must get to work...

I was fortunate enough to find some old books this year with vintage stamps, old photographs and inscriptions. The best one was a collection of Wordsworth poems. What a wonderful site!
