sweet stack...

I went treasure hunting with Mary Ellen this past Monday.
We had a great time!
In addition to finding some new pieces for our booths, we are starting to gather pieces for the next At Home With White Show at the shop.
While we did not hit the vintage jackpot we did find a few things.
Of course I found something for myself too...

Vintage books are one of my weaknesses and the colors on the top book of this sweet stack are perfect for my studio.
They are beautifully worn...


I would like to untie this pretty package and browse through the pages.
If you look closely, the book behind the top one is "The Adventures of Pinocchio"...


I would like to untie this pretty package, but just can't yet...

It is just too cute!

I think I will admire it for a while just like this...


Blogger is still not letting me visit some of you or let me leave comments on some of your blogs.
I feel like I am missing out on so much and hope it will be fixed soon!

I am joining in on the fun at Vintage Inspiration Friday and Feathered Nest Friday.

Love your book stack...such lovely faded colors...can't blame you for leaving that bow tied so sweetly!

Gorgeous covers, I don't blame you for not wanting to separate them yet.

Blogger has been a bugger lately.

I've always had a weakness for old books too. I like that first one, the colors are so pretty.

Sweet stack of books - love the colors of the covers!

Old books add such warmth to a vignette. Love the ones with beautiful covers. I'd leave the tie on also because it's such an attractive way to display them.

They look perfect the way they are. Enjoy them.

They look perfect just the way they are, Sandi! Beautifully worn and aged and touched by decades of fingertips.... :)

Looks so pretty

Linda @ Itsy Bits And Pieces said...

OH I love old books...love the gray covers especially! Beautiful!

blessedmom's simple home said...

Great photos! I buy old books just for the covers, but Elsie Dinsmore is a sweet girls book :) We have paperback reprints that my girls read when they were younger. How nice to find an older copy like this!
Blessings,
Marcia

You're little book stack is heavenly... oh my goodness

Blogger is not working right unless you use Google Chrome as your browser... Amy at Maison Decor told me that, and i discovered she was right. I'm kind of put off that i have to use their browser to be able to comment... but that seems to be the case... try and see if that helps...

That is a very pretty stack of books. I switched to a pop-up window like you have and that seems to have fixed the problem for those who couldn't comment on my blog before. Internet Explorer is a thing of the past and yet so many are still using it and experience problems because of the constant "upgrades" blogger is making. I downloaded Google Chrome last year when there were so many issues, and that fixed things for me. Have a wonderful weekend. Tammy

Loving the old books, I really like the first one. Happy Weekend

Susan said...

Sandy, I'm getting giddy thinking about your white event! I've already checked out the WCS info & marked it on my calendar.
I just love your wrapped stack of books! It does look too cute with that beautiful ribbon.
Have a great weekend!

Lou Cinda @ Tattered Hydrangeas said...

This is gorgeous...the worn books with the ribbon...total eye candy! Beautiful...

I am having trouble leaving comments too..makes me nuts! Someone told me I need to change my browser to Chrome...I am clueless as to how to do that! lol

I think I will goggle it!

Good luck to you!

They are beautiful and I love the color and the ribbon. I hope blogger fixes itself soon, this seems to be going on for quite a while.

There are no words to describe this lovliness...bow and all! Enjoy your new treasure all wrapped up as long as you like. Either way, it's simply - perfect! Much love, Lisa

Suzanne@Meridian Road said...

The cover of the top book is so pretty! Why don't books look like that anymore?

Hi Sandi~~ I know what you mean about vintage books.. I love them too. I love putting themes or color combos together. I also LOVE to see what they have handwritten inside and see where they have been etc.

Happy Weekend:)

Hi Sandi,

Oh those vintage books are just divine! LOVE the texture and colors of this sweet stack! :) By the way, I've also had major probs in commenting other blogs as well, so you are not alone. Hopefully this glitch gets fixed soon! Take care and enjoy your weekend!


Hugs,
Jessie

Evi said...

these are so beautiful. I would also be itching to open the stack....I am lacking in patience.
It was one of my new years resolutions, I guess it has not taken yet, ha ha.
Warm hugs from a snowy New York,
Evi
PS. How much did you get?

thistlewoodfarm said...

elizabeth said...

I am so thankful for your kind comment on my post about contentment with my wee little house. God is good. I just love your blog and all of the treasures you find. My favorite is still the preserves crock in your header...I've scoured the internet looking for one like it but no luck so far!

Jen Kershner said...

I'm a sucker for old books too but I'm trying to resist buying any new ones unless they are particularly special. Those look particularly special!

Miss Gracie's House said...

Such pretty books...I am jealous...I haven't been junkin' in ages!

Liz @ the Brambleberry Cottage said...

The colors of the top book ARE fabulous, Sandi! And tied up with that gorgeous ribbon, they do look so pretty, but I, personally, would HAVE to browse the books...because books are a weakness for me, as well. ;)

I would love to have you join me for Time Travel Thursday. The current link is up through Monday night, and the new link goes up Wednesday. Hope to see you there!

Blessings,
Liz @ The Brambleberry Cottage

Oh Sandi,
What a pretty stalk of vintage books. Great find. I would be anxious to untie the bow and look inside too :-) Wishing you a beautiful day.

Hugs and Kisses,
♥Ana
