Old Vintage Victorian Scrapbook Life in the 1880s Reward of Merit Children

I have been busy working on Antique Scrapbooks, removing some trade cards, keeping others on album pages.  I am expecting another album in the mail and some individual cards I ordered.  It is so much fun to look at all the pictures, some with advertising.

Undergoing Chemotherapy but doing OK

I am taking a break on my blog due to a health issue.  I hope to not let Breast Cancer stop my entries but its slowing me down.  I completed one chemotherapy treatment a week ago and still feel tired and achy.  I have 3 more treatments and then 5 weeks of radiation.  I am not one to keep a blog diary of the illness and hope to have some good photos of the things I am sewing.  I have put eBay on hold.
