This small antique prayer book I just listed made me want to do a blog post about it.
This small book is a Pocket Gems of Devotion. It's a book of prayers that was approved by the Catholic Church in 1891.
It was given to someone in 1909 for Epiphany Day. It's a beautiful book that is very worn. Some pages are on the verge of coming out.
I think the fact that this little book is so worn is incredibly touching and beautiful. The book was obviously used a lot, perhaps by multiple generations. I got it at a estate sale many years ago. It was hidden away with the Christmas decorations in the basement. I have no doubt the original recipient was a much older relative of the house owner.
I've also listed a number of Christmas items on The Cedar Chest. Hope you stop by the shop to see the new items.
Oh, and there are still a couple Thanksgiving cards, as well. here is my favorite.
If I don't get back here by next week. I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving Day!
