Best of....vol. 2

I've been working on a little project. I spent a few minutes each day this week printing out dozens upon dozens of photos of my favorite estate sale treasures from the past year. Then gathering all kinds of vintage bits from swaps, thrifting, this and that and compiling it all together into vol. 2 of my treasure book. Last year around this time I created the first book and I've found it's one of my favorite projects of the year. I love paging through it and seeing all the goodies, some that I'm no longer in posession of, but find them beautiful and inspiring to gaze at and remember where they came from and how they came into my posession. Here are my first several pages.












It goes on and on. This will sure be fun to page through in the future.

I love the chicks page.. but it's all great! I'm not sure i could give up things, even with a picture.. sometimes you just can't capture them on film like you see them in person.

I love it - what a great book! I think that is a great idea - when I was visiting and we were looking through photos on your computer we kept stopping and oohhhing and ahhhing over the,, so this is a great way to put them together to view! I cannot wait for the fall to flip through all the journals you have been working on in person!

I love your blog. I have just one question. Where do you put all this stuff? Do you pass it on after a year?
Just curious.
