Just Sweet!*!*! ***Little SHaBBy ViNtaGe Booklets***

These "Sweet Little Shabby Booklets" are just The BeSt!*!*!  I love incorporating them in my vignettes...  Many of them have colored litho prints on the inside pages...  A good number of them have subtle signs of watermark stains, dog-eared edges, & seam wear...  These imperfections only add to their "vintage charm"...   These particular ones are early 1900's...  I find them hard to come by... Here are a few from my personal collection... EnJoY!*!*!  (click on pictures to enlarge for better details...  comments are welcome...)


This is one of my most favorite covers...




The color of these "old lithos" is just amazing...  Nothing like todays... Sweet little verses...




Sweet little booklets like this work well adorning your "jewelry nook"...




Lovely ...




Another favorite of mine...  If you look close - there are "3" little birdies on the cover...




Pansies!*!*!  These flowers were a favorite of my Aunt Loretta's...

  2. I adore those little books! I used to find them from time to time, but they are hard to get your hands on these days. On my hunt yesterday I came across a very thick hard bound book of Opera sheet music. Over 200 pages... 3.50. I will use these forever!
