Old Books


It's not only fun to read an old book in order to savor a classic in it's richest form but to use their rich colors and patina in decorating.
I like to choose ones in the colors I'm using in a room for the particular season. They make great risers for other accessories that need to be a bit higher. Or just add a stack on their own.

That's one gorgeous cloche!

Congratulations on your new blog. I really like your clean patina - alot like what I enjoy at Mt. Hope.
