Love Letters ~ Forgotten Treasures

I'm so happy we didn't let a little snow and freezing temperatures stop us from going to the most recent estate sale.....we wold have missed finding love letters from Ted!

My favorite part of the letter is when Ted gives a description of himself; I'm 19 and will be 20 in July, 5'7" weighs 150lbs, bownish hair, loves sports and girls and drives a gold & white 55 Chev Bel Air!

When going to estate sales get there early for the best selection, but I have found at the end of the day or Sunday afternoon you'll get the best deals. The strategy of shopping a sale is simple, yet complex, I have found if I go in search ofa paticular object my eye will "edit out" other very suitable objects. This sets up for disappointment, however, if you go for more of the hunt, you are bound to see something to come home with.....I'm sure you will find something you will make a connection with, like a box of old love letters!!!

What a wonderful find. I love these letters - thank so much for sharing. I find it hard to believe that someone in the family didn't hold on to these but thankfully you found them. This is how my mom and dad writing letters while he was in the Marines.
