a Little Treasure...

 My sister and I have a rule in life... no dust jackets!! We throw them away faster than we can turn the first page! 
I had this tiny book in my porch (ie. suitcase of books I bought to make into journals and never did) and thought I would bring it in for decoration. I gasped when i took off the sleeve, it's a beautiful vintage book in perfect shape! Look at the treasures I found inside...
I love my dog so much! Lola is the perfect companion and keeps me company all day long! It took 6 (six!) years for her to settle out of her puppy hyperness and now she's so calm and perfect... we're a team forever :)
Come back tomorrow morning for our Home Ec Sewing Class Details, Peeks and Registration! This class is going to be amazing!! xo, LA


  1. Aw man that book is SO COOL!!! I love old books and written notes and treasures inside. My boyfriend (now husband) purchased and mailed an old book to me. It had the nicest cover and old notes inside to an old friend. Best present ever.
