Trixie: Out of the Dark at Last

I couldn't wait, I unpacked my two boxes of vintage Trixie Belden books. I had aimed to have a full shelf clear without double stacking other shelves that were NOT already doubled. But, as I note above, I couldn't wait. I did cull almost a full box of books, but I just didn't have the emotional energy to do more than that. But my precious Trixies are out of the dark--they've been boxed up since, oh, about 1997.





In one of the boxes, I found a 3x5" file card box, filled with cards. What was on the cards, you ask? Take a look! Yes, that is what you think it is. Detailed indices of the contents of my VHS tape collection.

Oh wow! I loved Trixie Belden books. I read as many as I could find when I was a child. I totally forgot about those books until now. Thanks for the trip down memory lane. :)

Your Trixies are beautiful! I have the tan cover paperback editions (except for the last 3 titles in the series) but now that they are reprinting them in hardcover, oh, it's hard not to buy them!

Trixie was one of my favorites! I always had the illusion that my hair was the color of Honey (just like the neighbor). Alas, it was truly an illusion because my hair is not the collor of honey!

I don't remember reading these books when I was younger but it sure does bring back memories of reading Nancy Drew mysteries!

Love,
