Vintage Books

I absolutely love these little treasures I found a few 
weeks ago at a thrift store. 
Books were an additional 50% off that day so they cost me about 1.25$ a piece.

I love the pressed flowers that were found in some of the pages and the 
penciled in name of the previous owner.

I've used these books for a little project that I have been working on and will post 
those pics tomorrow.

Finding unique pieces ~ Transforming spaces & wardrobes ~ Spending tiny bits of money
This is what I love.
This is what I do.


  1. Love this!! a couple of years ago i found twenty vintage books at a goodwill near my house. I got tons of psychology books (used to decorate my apaartment shared with my psych major roomie), some english and prose books to gift to my english student sister, and a 1927 print of Rudyard Kipling's Verse.


    Vintage books are amazing, for reconnecting to the past and for decor. Looking forward to seeing your project pictures!

  2. @Ashley~ Sounds amazing!! I think they would make great gifts too. I'm thinking of giving the Photography book to one of my beloved photographers.

    I saw a really amazing idea at Anthropologie where they just used the bindings and made a lampshade..I can't imagine tearing up these treasures but maybe one day :)

    Thanks for the comment!
