One of my favorite things to collect are old cardboard and paper covered books. Nicely worn spines, tattered covers – all in shades of black and brown. Stacked imperfectly one on top of the other. Add a pair of old reading glasses and their black case on top of the stack to finish the vignette.
Another favorite collection are small old Bible and prayer books with black covers. The two in this photo are recent finds – both are prayer books – one in English and one in French. It’s ok that I don’t speak French, right?
The antique metal boudoir lamp is another recent find. It is so dainty and pretty with creamy flowers and apple green leaves, which pulls the colors from the chandelier and table in the dining room. The little light actually flickers and adds a special touch to the room at night.
Oh dear…..I spy a burnt bulb in the chandy!
