yesterday, on a whim, an inner prompting, I stopped by a yard sale in the neighborhood. I'd been poking around for almost 15 minutes, looking at this and that. Some neat stuff, but nothing I was really anxious to whip my wallet out for.
Then I saw it. An oversized book sticking out from the bottom of the pile. Title in french.
Pulled it out.
"Les Grandes Heures de Jean de France, Duc de Berry".
It's a massive text, easily 12 x 17, with over 100 color plates of the Grande Heures.... Yes, it's got a heavy amount of water damage, but so much of it is still readable and legible!
And I got it for $5.00.....
Zubeydah, who is chortling madly, happily petting her new book.
PS: Halfiras, I also grabbed some waterbearing stuff, and a cool celtic throw like the one I bought at Estrella for $20... but this one was $2.00! whee!
