Vintage Finds

When I was in Canton last month I got a few wonderful old books ~

I started reading one I got on Etiquette from the 1800's ~

It is so much fun to read !!

Here are just a couple of the sentences that make me smile ~

There are quite a few though ~

"With care the skin may be kept free from the disfigurement of freckles. "

"A warm water bath once a week is necessary for cleanliness."

"A nap of 40 winks will help aged people get through the day in comfort."

This cracked me up ~

"If the eyebrows unite, let them alone. If you remove uniting hairs a scar will be produced which will disfigure more than the meeting eyebrow."

I could go on and on with each chapter of this awesome book ~
