Right before my dad passed, we had a really short time to sort through all of his things. Being a master hoarder, I kept alloftheeverything, including a highboy and bookshelf that carried some super bad juju. I made the decision to move them out of my house, and the now-weathered bookshelf has become a photo backdrop for my Etsy page.
So as it sat outside, parts began to break down, including the mirrored top. I didn't want the mirror to fall, so I pulled it off when it started separating from the wood. Nestled in a little crevice between the mirror and the frame was a perfectly preserved newspaper from a March 22, 1907 Detroit Journal. TREASURE!

Just imagine - a fancy worsted suit for all of $7.50, which was MORE than the $5.50 iron bed! I wish I could read the ends of the articles at the bottom - obviously the piece on HOODOO DOCTOR reveals some of the biggest differences between the times.
Some would say that leaving a bookshelf from 1907 outside is crazy, but I know it was a necessary step in my grief process. Had I not, I'd never gotten to see this amazing little time capsule...which my dad would've loved ♥️

Well, some say life will beat you down
Break your heart, steal your crown
So I've started out for God-knows-where
I guess I'll know when I get there

If this how 40 goes, I might be able to swing it.
