Love me some old books. Great pictures!
I love your book stacks! I need to keep an eye out for some old and tattered books myself.
Love the books and especially the stencilled pages !Gail x
You have given new life to those tattered books. They look fabulous!
I love tattered elegance. The books make great decoration.
I love all kinds of books. These are great ideas for displaying old books! I especially like how you've tied them off with vintage items. I picked up a big history of the US (coverless) this weekend with crafting in mind. Also found a music booklet filled with Bach, I think. I see a banner ala KOT in my decorating future... Thanks for the inspiration!
i love old books too!!love how you group them!
Your pictures are gorgeous! I love old books also and you are right the more tattered the better.
I also love old books, and I love the way you make them look even more interesting! Thanks for great ideas.-Revi

I LOVE LOVE LOVE old books too. What a great idea to bind them together with ribbon. Beautiful blog
Old books are a weakness of mine too ... you've given some beautiful illustrations on how to give them new life in. Thank you for this inspiring post!
I love old books especially when I see them looking so happy grouped together like this. Very clever ideas and beautiful pictures.
I can't resist picking up old books, either. Something wonderful about them, isn't there? Nice photos. Feel free to check out the post about my recent book find at onceuponafirefly.blogspot.com

You do indeed make old books look elegant. Way to go!

Your title caught my eye at Susan's place...the juxtaposition of tattered and elegance is something I really like. Years ago I started collecting old cookbooks that are just in this tattered condition. I will certainly use them for displays! Thanks!
Very elegant post!Great shots too. Thanks for sharing.Hope to see you on my blog:)
I love old books too - as long as they don't smell musty. You are right - tying them together makes them more than the sum of their parts.
Like you, I adore old books!Thank you for participation in Potpourri Friday. You have certainly made it more fun!
I'm with you. I use old books all the time to decorate with. I search for just the right colors to mix into my decor. My best buy was a couple of years ago our historical society was having their annual book sale and I found an old Webster Dictionary (hugh) for a .25 cent and the best part inside was an old black and white photograph taken in the earlier years at one of our foundries here in the area. The dictionary sits on our coffe table in the family room and the picture was framed and hangs in the hallway with others like it.Love your idea!!
Love old books too!Audrey

I love old books too. It always amazes me how inexpensive they are at auctions. I guess other people aren't able to appreciate their beauty.Laura
Love your post and blog! I think I'm going to have to drop by our second hand store and see what "old" books I can score to make some banners for the Fall, Holiday, and Christmas season! I also have made a few book page wreaths that are super fun. I also love old books and have a small collection of books that my family brought with them from Scotland four generations ago as well as others each generation has acquired since.
I love old books as well. I have several, some not quite as old as others. You can go to tag sales in the summer and get all kinds. I have some really old primers that I actually taught my son from when I was homeschooling him. Now I look back and think, what was I thinking lol.I love how you have them tied up together. they look wonderful.Thanks.Merry ChristmasKat
Thank you for dropping by the visit - I love to hear from each one of you!
