My last project was completed on Friday afternoon (except for one more coat of varnish).
Imagine my surprise when I went to look at my wee little front porch Halloween display and found a package.
Books! Books to cut to pieces!!
A lovely book from 1955.
From this book, I can learn to churn butter, shear sheep and visit Peggy and Peter who live on a farm. I also get to see ladies in furs making their purchases at the market.
Loads of illustrations and lightly aged pages.
This beauty was published in 1949.
Unfortunately, I couldn't get the book to stay open to photograph its beautifully colored pages. Almost every page has a color illustration. I might just need to read this one before I take the scissors to it. A peach of a book except for my new knowledge that there were only white people back in the 1940's.
But a pristine vintage book about towns and how they function -- I'm all set for inspiration now!
Here's to sharp scissors and a productive week ahead!!
