The Vintage Moth: Free Antique & Vintage Images
On Friday, I went to an Estate sale over in the "old money" part of Phoenix. I love going to these because these houses are usually pretty big. This one was over 4000 square feet with a separate living quarters on the side of the property. They also usually hold a lot of stuff. Oh and I'm nosy. How else am I going to tour and see the inside some of Phoenix's largest real estate?

Animal Woodcuts and Printable Book Plates The other day I received an old German speller that I’d purchased on ebay that was published in 1832.

The inside cover’s layout was full of beautiful woodcut animal illustrations. With some of the animals, I designed free printable book plates.

Title Page Art, Beautiful JF Ptak Science Books LLC Post 776 Blog Bookstore I wonder what is was like to be a traveling salesman hauling around hundred-pound barrels of pig bristles?

Do It Yourself You can make a calendar page, watch the moon everyday for a month, and learn about the phases of the moon. The moon changes in appearance and location in the sky everyday, which is why we refer to the moon by its phases: new moon, new crescent moon, 1st quarter moon, waxing gibbous, full moon, waning gibbous, 3rd quarter, and old crescent. After 29 days you will have a visual record of the phases of the moon, and a better understanding of all the phases. In other words, you can gain the first-hand experience of an astronomer by watching the sky everyday.
