WOW!!!! (eyes pop out of head) I now have stored about 50 covers on my computer, and a couple of indexes. I never saw Dewberries in a catalogue before (although we have enough of the min the woods).

Only the Burpee 1901, Kate.

I want the daffodils catalog cover next but it will take some work cleaning it up. There's a fold at the top that may have to stay but I can fix the tear along the edge in Picasa. The daffodils will also brighten the day since there are still none outdoors.
:coolsun

I did some work on the Alneer Brothers catalog repairing the damage on the watermelon but it is kind of "busy" . . . Well, I like it anyway!

This house was built in 1901 and the Burpee catalog is loverlee!

You are welcome.

It is a little part of the Smithsonian. So, we can all pat ourselves on the back :).

Can't you imagine a few of these hanging on the wall of our potting shed with a tea kettle whistling on the hot plate and a full cookie jar on the counter? Excuse me while I push the dog out of the Adirondack chair and make myself comfortable . . .

Steve :p
:thumbsup get a second cup and I'll move the cat out of the hammock

I have a stack of seed catalogs near the front door.

It's kind of embarrassing but . . . handy. Some people come in that door and pick up a catalog before sitting down in the living room ;).

Anyway, I got 3 thrift store frames and put in copies of 3 catalog covers from 100+ years ago. They are hung above that table of 2012 seed catalogs, now. When I said that they provide appropriate distraction from the table, my daughter just rolled her eyes
