Wonderful Old Book
Well, I just had to blog this. I just love old musty books...I love the tatters and the stains and the musty smell. I went to our HUGE Chamblin Book Mine here in Jacksonville in search of books I could tear up and use in my mixed media pieces and I came across this one. It is from 1879 and it will tell you all about being "proper." Of course being a little southern bred Georgia girl, we were taught much of this but not quite " assisting a lady to alight from her horse!" Anyway, I don't think I can tear it up. I think I might read it. It's a treasure.
