Old Book, New Book

I have mentioned this in a couple other posts, but wanted to share some photos and a little info.

I have been carrying around this leather notebook that belonged to a fountain pen salesmen from 1910-1912 (those are the dates in the notebook), I don't know why I think it is so interesting. I love opening it and reading his funny little sayings and reading his sales pitch ideas. He has also listed potential names for dogs, favorite songs and other random stuff. I keep him with me and have what he looks like in my mind, how is life was, etc. I keep him pretty private since I don't want anyone to change my ideas about him. Here are some photos of his notebook:
I too keep a little notebook that I carry around with my funny sayings, lists of things to do and ideas for projects, etc. I wonder if in 100 years someone like me will end up purchasing it at an antique store for $3.00 like I did the one above.

Here is mine, I had to skew it to protect my privacy but you can tell by the photos I am just as crazy about writing all my stuff down as the man above was.

I think you two are a perfect match!
A pen salesman who writes matched with a crafty girl who loves to write. Cool post and I dig the new little picture icon of you.
love you and miss you. . .always
