  1. What an exquisite shot!! You should have a good print made, fine a fabulous old wood frame (preferably with a thin gold filet) and hang it!!

  16. I think your lovely vellum books are what those poor, torn PB book bundles want to be when they grow up. You can't fake the age and grace that your books have.

    I just noticed that you updated the headboard post with more progress and the almost-finished 'After' shot. Very nicely done!!! I know you must be totally thrilled with the result ... and the speed at which it was achieved. Now I'm motivated to cross something of MY ever-expanding To Do list ... hmmmm .... what should I work on??

    Stay warm,
    Connie
