A Mary Engelbreit Book

I love Mary Engelbreit, a St. Louis, MO. artist and have several books of hers as well as other items like teacups and coffee mugs, a cake plate, a teacup kitchen curtain topper, cards, stationery, rubber stamps, a tissue box cover-up, salt and pepper shakers, tins and hatboxes, refrigerator magnets and so forth.  Most of the items I find junking at thrift stores, garage sales, and at flea markets. David recently unearthed a 1993 book for me she illustrated called “A Mother’s Journal: A Collection of Family Memories.” It’s a fill-in-the-blank scrapbook with many questions to jog mom’s brain cells, help her organize her collection of family memories, and to present to her descendants. There are even pages for photographs.
