I love Nancy Drew.
My employer recently got rid of a lot of really nice office furniture. I scored a bookcase, and finally, an office chair that doesn't hurt my back when I stamp and blog. Thanks employer!!
But what it really means is that my Nancy Drew books that my parents saved for me have a home - out of the garage and onto a shelf where they belong.
Aaah. Look at them.
I have a collection of just one less than half of all of them. I wish I had the rest in the same editions.
I remember when I was reading them going to this store that specialized in pretty expensive dolls (the Madame Alexander dolls - I had Alice in Wonderland, Snow White and a few others), some hobby stuff and these crazy expensive books. I remember that it was a big deal to get one. I think they were like $3. Maybe $3.50. Definitely a luxury.
Anyone who has ever read The Secret of Red Gate Farm gets it about right now and is smiling from ear to ear.
What about the Ghost of Blackwood Hall?
Man. That was some good stuff.
Have a good Wednesday. Super innovative card tonight with something cool I invented, I promise. :)
