Vintage Thingie Thursday

Vintage Thingie Thursday 
Time again to get nostalgic.
I love digging around for valuable keepsakes I have.

Click on for greater detail
Last week when I was doing "Collection" for Friday Shoot Out I made a stop at my favorite antique shop.

I had decided to look for old postcards due to inspiration from some postcard collectors I have met on line.
I found this Poetry of the Psalms
Henry Van Dyke

 Double click to read.

Here is a quote from the book.

John Milton, whose faith in religion was as exalted as his mastery of the art of poetry was perfect, has expressed in a simple sentence the spirit in which I would approach the poetic study of the Book Of Psalms:
"Not in their divine arguments alone, but in the very critical art of composition, the Psalms may be easily made to appear over all kinds of lyric poetry incomparable."

I paid $3.00 for this little book, which I think belongs in a collection of fine essays.

Milton, one of the greatest poets the earth has ever seen.

QMM, I have been admiring your blog and some of your recent posts, what a pretty and colourful place you have here.

I wish it was Thursday here, but alas, it's only Wednesday and I still have 2.5 shifts to work before my vacation. Sigh.

I enjoyed your VTT. So glad you're feeling better. Keep up the good work!
