Here's a simple and thrifty decor idea for you...
If you saw my post from yesterday on my china closet turned
display case... you'll remember this little gem. Sometimes it
pays to open an old book and see what treasure awaits inside.
When I opened this old little school booklet I was struck
by the pretty type fonts and chose to display it open.
How easy is that?
Same could go for any number of books. Check out this
pretty page on the inside of this old recipe book
|Recipe booklet available here in my Etsy shop|
Old school books are easy to come by. Open to an illustrated page -
add a few treasures and you're good to go.
A wooden ruler would have worked well here too - maybe even some dried flowers...
just something to draw the eye.
And my favorite open book to display - how about an old bible.
And while I'm partial to old books - new books would also work.
How about a charmingly illustrated children's book for in a nursery?
So pull out a book and get creative!
Stay thrifty my friends ~Joyce
