A life time of collecting!

Guess what.......I'm back, just like a bad penny!!!   I have spent hours this last week cleaning out cupboards and finding a bunch of other stuff.  There are a whole lot of books...most of which are church books but there are others too...I will list the non-church books first and then the odds and ends found in the kitchen cupboards (and downstairs)...then I will list all of the books!!  Hopefully all items will fit in one blog
