What is happening with all the beautiful antiques that decorated our parents' and grandparents' houses? Why are my generation ("young" Baby Boomer) and the generations after so quick to get rid of the past? It seems so odd to me. We talk about being sustainable and reusing/repurposing everything from tomato peels to wagon wheels...yet beautiful pieces of mahogany, sterling silver and oil painted canvases are being dumped into landfills day after day.
When will the madness end?

Seriously... I have been troubled by this for awhile, so you can imagine my excitement about a week ago, when I read a review of Susan Sully's new book, Past Present. I didn't even finish the (glowing) review by the Baltimore Sun before my iPhone was in hand and I was ordering. It came this week and I am pouring through it, just as happy as I can be. There is hope for the future!!!
Amazon has a terrific price on Past Present, so I have reopened the Classic Preppy Bookstore and made it the book of the month! Click on the link and you can page through several entries and see it for yourself. You will be as excited as I am...
Thank you, Susan!!
