Welcome to the 17th Metamorphosis Monday!
Many, many years ago, The Macon Telegraph and News decided to dispose of all the old copies of their past publications/newspapers. Apparently, news organizations used to keep copies of their old papers by binding them into large “books.” Each bound volume, shown below, had about three months worth of newspapers.
I had six of these large books stored for years under my guest bed…couldn’t quite figure out what I to do with them. They are truly little time capsules…I love pulling them out and reading the days events in 1921, in my old home town of Macon, Georgia.
One day I got an idea…
I needed an end table in my upstairs family room. So I stacked them up…
And had a piece of glass cut a bit bigger than the books themselves.
These facinating time capsules are no longer stored under the bed and I have a unique and functional end table for my upstairs family room.
Check out this past post to see some of the fascinating ads and articles from the 1921 book: A Trip in My Time Machine It’s amazing how women were just being allowed to vote and weren’t allowed to work in jobs as policewomen. Also, the price of shoes, suits etc… will have you shaking your head. 🙂
Looking forward to seeing all your Before and Afters for this Met Monday!
