Well, lately I have been enamoured by sweet vintage books. I love their beautiful covers and illustrations inside, full of delicate, yet aged to perfection pages.
I purchased "Tattine" at the shop where I have a booth not too long ago. I couldn't resist the sweet little one on the cover. It was a gift to Mildred from the superintendent of her school for doing her homework back in 1912!
The postcard was in a batch I picked up when my Valentine took me treasure hunting on Sunday. So precious!!!
Here are some other treasures I got while browsing with my Valentine...some lovely hatboxes for the shop...
and a vintage cigarette case which I think I might keep to hold my very first business cards I just had made up! Mary Ellen, the owner of my shop (and a cherished new friend) gave me the idea. I'm thinking I might paint it white and distress it which will make the detail show up more, what do you think?
Are you in love with sweet vintage books too?
