Vintage Readers Digest DIY

I love books!

From their musty smell to the crisp pages.

This display of books left me breathless.

Book art who woulda guessed?

From now on I am on the lookout for these babies!

Vintage Readers Digest.

Do you or someone you know have a collection?

If so, lucky you!

You might remember when Missy and I took a little trip to St Francisville.

Well along the way we made a stop at

 Grandmothers Buttons.

It's an awesome little shop located in an old bank.

It is filled with old buttons made into about anything and everything you can imagine.

It's also filled with fun gift shop stuff too.

And then wayyyy in the back of the store there is this tiny room.

There you find this

A mantel dressed in vintage books!

This is so simple yet so stunning!

It's just a wall of opened colorful

I'm guessing they attached it to some sort of thin board.

That's what I would have done.

But who knows, maybe they just glued those babies right onto the wall...LOL

However they are up there, I'm in love.

Anyone know of a few great shops in the Atlanta area?

This girl needs to find some books.

much love,

  6. Susie, our local, small community thrift store gives these books away for FREE! We picked up our first four yesterday and will check back often for more. Thanks for the inspiration! Love it! Have a fab time at Haven! :)

  7. LOVE this! As a book freak (and librarian) this just makes me so happy. Can't wait to try it.

    (may have to use my librarian contacts to see if anyone is discarding their copies of RD books!)

    Wish we were close enough to visit this place - it looks wonderful.

  8. “You can see the techniques of the knit on this style; Red Bandage Dress one day we will videotape the process of how our pieces are made. Herve Leger sale They weave the base and then hand-apply everything else. And our fit is really key. Oktoberfest Dress These pieces are more like sweaters than anything else—they’re not cut-and-sew, they’re knits—and that’s why they fit so well. People are so surprised at how well Herve Leger fits, and I tell them it’s all about how the dresses are constructed.”And finally, we dress for what we love too. For what we just can’t resist. Lubov, a former dancer, is a big fan of movement, so for her that signals the fringe-trimmed bandage dress.

  9. An impressive share, I just given this onto a colleague who was doing a little analysis on this. And he in fact bought me breakfast because I found it for him.. smile.
