Thought I would give you a close up of the little wall art that you may have spotted in this post.
My Husband and I love books, old nature ones in particular. We have a largish collect of old books displayed in a number of places around the house. I stumbled across this beautiful book of wild flowers in our local vintage book shop and just fell in love with the plates. The flowers are so detailed and pretty I just had to have them displayed.
But you know how things go:
1 - Couldn't bring myself to cut up the book!
2 - Would like to display all of the plates in frames.
3 - Framing them all would cost loads, and I would have to do it in one go.
Then I saw the book sitting on my shelf and realised that I never get to see these gorgeous pictures and that is just a crime! So I did it. I tore the pages out carefully, and used my seam ripper to cut the cotton binding so they all came out great after that. The I just put them up with blutack!
I love it! Husband loves it. In fact he thinks it looks good without the frames and said "why didn't I do it sooner". Just what I was thinking :)
Have a great week!
