Old Books and A Cheap Cloche



I appreciate old books. They just have a more artistic look to them more than today's. And the smell of an old book is a welcome smell to me, others may not agree. Little Women is a favorite, I read it when I was younger. I found this one on Ebay and had to bid for it. I WON !

Then there is this Cloche. I found it high on a shelf pushed way back in Ross one afternoon. I found a chair and climbed up and took hold of it dust and all. It was marked $6.00 WOW am I reading this correctly ? I didn't have my reading glasses on. But I was right. So, as I always say when I find something "It's Mine ". 

I found recently the green and cream eggs, and the pretty cream roses at Home Goods.

I feel comfortable now admitting that I kind of like the musty smell of old books.

I agree that the illustrations and embellishments were incomparable to what we see now. So romantic.

I also agree with you on the older books. The illustration on the front of yours is very pretty.Wow! You did great on the cloche buy! I found mine on a high shelf in a store - large @ $25 (had to get someone to get it down). The other ones in the store same size, were much higher - maybe they saved them just for us. :-)
