White Wednesday


Joining in on White Wednesday and sharing some tresors that I found at one of my most favorite shops: "Nesting On Main",  in the quaint town of Concord, Ma. 


These heavenly vintage pages, from a Bible dated 1816, were brought to my attention by Beth, one of the shops' artists.

She knows me well...

...they took my breath away!



And who could leave behind these sweet vintage French Prayer Cards?


Beth also bestowed upon me this beautiful paper cross that she fashioned out of pages from the same Bible....

...it, too, took my breath away.

Beth happens to be one of the most talented paper artists I have ever known. Her creations are absolutely stunning.....

...I purchased this petite charm from her lovely collection.

She was sweet enough to remember my obsession with old  doorknobs and GAVE this one to me! 
"Merci" Beth...you made me smile!

She is working on opening an ETSY shop as well as a blog and, as soon as she does, I will "introduce" you to her properly! You won't want to miss THAT post!

*******************************************************

And here are a few tresors that I collected from around my studio....











Happy White Wednesday mes amies!
I'm joining Kathleen at Faded Charm Cottage...won't you follow me there?

  36. What you should do is copy those vintage papers in a color photocopier and then put them up for decoration throughout your home. You could take them and make paper birds out of them and many other artistic things. That would be neat.
