An Angelus missal.  They have some with leather covers in stock while supplies last, so I splurged.  Interested in comparing first hand to my Baronius missal.

Both are based off the New Marian / Ideal Missal, I think. It is interesting how they both publishers reworked the same source missal, yet did a number of things differently. Both provided the Latin for all the propers, rather than half and half, but I think the Baronius fitted the text better. I think. Anyhow, same source, somewhat different result.

I think you will like the Angelus missal better.  I did because I didn't have to flip back for the Preface.  I heard one person complain about the thin rice paper in the Angelus missal though.

"Tell people that God gives graces through the Immaculate Heart of Mary.  Tell them also to pray to the Immaculate Heart of Mary for peace, since God has entrusted it to Her." Saint Jacinta Marto

I am looking forward to reading all the commentary the Angelus has throughout.

I've had my Baronius a long time, since before SP.  It's going to take a lot to change my preference. :)  We'll see how it goes.

I just won an ebay auction for one dollar for a "my daily psalm book".   It is a psalm book arranged in the order of the divine office.

I have this on kindle.  ;)

So far I am upset that they changed the word "unicorn" to "buffalo".  Aren't buffalo limited to North America?  I really like how compact it is, and that I don't have to do any page flipping.  It aids meditation in that sense.  Left to right, and top to bottom.

I bought a new china head doll for my collection, my birthday present to myself (early, but who's counting?). She's enormous, nearly 30" and comes wearing a silk dress that I'll be able to use as a pattern to finally sew a dress for my other china head doll.

She looks French.

She's actually German, or at least that's what the seller said.

The paper, oh my!  I have shaky hands and fingers.  Getting apart some those pages stuck together due to the gilding...  The Baronius has thin pages, but they're not thin thin!

I do like the cover though.  My Baronius is over a decade old and the covers are still stiff, but the Angelus is already bending quite nicely when I hold it in my hand

Bought a book of 1870s dress patterns, to sew for my China-head dolls. I can't wait until it gets here.

A larger sewing box. It's one of the cantilever ones that folds out, made in Norway. I've wanted one for years. Now I can keep my quilt pieces in it with my supplies and not in my dresser. Lol.
