ANTIQUE BOOKS, ILLUSTRATIONS

 I've been blog hopping and noticing many crafters who are using vintage and antique images on their cards, notes and all lovely things.  So I decided to check my antique books from the Thrift stores.

This photo is the cover to a 1928 Fish Cookbook.  It was well used and well-loved.  The illustration is delightful.   Sorry, but my camera is old and I couldn't get a better photo.


This is a page from a children's French book that I also found in one of my favorite Thrift stores.  There are only a few illustrations, but there's also a few songs in French.  This is one of the sweetest.  On my list of the many things I want to do is incorporate my vintage illustrations in some paper crafting creations.
