Frothy, feathery,old tea colour, foxed & fantastique!!!

I absolutely adore old timeworn French books. I love them piled high on a shelf or table. Gorgeous tied with a ribbon or old hemp string.

But then.................I also adore them like this.............

I have found this tutorial on "youtube" that explains how to make is the link. ( press on arrow to start).

For years I have walked past the batches at brocantes  as I thought they were not " full books". What was I thinking? I have a huge pile from an attic clearance and I now I realise what I have been missing!!

Now then..................have you seen my glue?

A demain mes belles!!

    How's the brocante season shaping up?
    Have a great weekend.

    1. Hi Di,
      Its lashing a gale and raining chiens & chats!! Fortunately tomorrow there is a 250 strong brocante in the undercover cattle market so if its bad we`ll be okay!!
      Hope you are not being lashed about on the waves!!

  2. My My My...I saw these in your shop and put one in my cart and went back a minute later and someone else bought it....sigh.

    I'll get one...let me go back...these are fabulous.

  3. So cool! Thank you!
    p.s. You and Di seem to get rained on and lashed about a lot. Sounds kind of exciting.
