Bottles & Books


Old bottles....

I just love most everything about them.


Their shape...the old metal lids and chippy worn paint...old labels turned brown from age...


Old books.....


Don't even get me started on that!


I found a bunch of old books this past week-end.

Fifty cents a piece!

Now you just can't go wrong with that.


Aren't the covers wonderful.

These are some of my favorite books to find.


Not to mention the sweet pictures in many of them.

And old photos....


Don't even let me start...

Thank you for hosting White Wednesday Kathleen.

Be sure to check out the other fabulous White Wednesday post this week!

Gosh, those books are beautiful together! And how often do you see books that color? Not very. At least I don't. I might be looking a little harder now, though.

Love your finds. You and I would be fighting over the same things if we ever went shopping together!

Don't you just love the smell of old books,too, Debbie?? Sounds weird, I know....but I spent my childhood in the local library (my mom was the librarian), so that "book smell" means so much to me! Love your post today! Happy WW!
