latest treasures:

Yesterday, I was lucky enough to find these at a vintage and collectable goods fair:

a bag full of patterns

and a book-full of poems. Over one hundred years old. I felt funny carrying such a beautiful relic in my bag on the way home. Since buying it, I’ve looked at it over and over. I love the small details:

the beautiful end papers

the olde worlde writing conventions, and the red border around each page.

(I wonder how many other hands have held it?)

  1. My goodness. What a find! Those patterns look amazing, I’m practically drooling over them. Are you going to make some of them?

    • they are so cute huh!
      I haven’t sorted through them yet, and am wondering whether to keep them myself or sell them once I (finally) get some things up on etsy. It’s been taking me ages to get everything going because I am so easily distracted. I’m thinking of setting a deadline! maybe the first of march…
