As I was arranging these old books on a shelf in the new studio, I had to take a photo for you. The tattered bindings, covers and pages are all something that I love. Some I use for my artwork, giving the pages a new life and some are too wonderful to use the original so I'll scan the page in and print it out or have color copies made.
This little bundle of goodness are the gatherings that I collected during our last trip to Savannah. Some of the moss that hangs from the old trees, pieces of a palm tree that had fallen to the ground and small fragments of shells. I saved these things to make a memory assemblage of our trip.
Remember the ephemera idea? Sewing the paper clips onto the long strip of fabric? Well, I am such a cheapskate that I wouldn't pay the money that they were asking (I didn't find the round ones, just the "S" shaped ones) so I thought I'd try these teeny clothes pins! I'm worried about damage to the brittle papers and I think they'll be a little more gentle to the paper that the paper clips. We'll see....
I'm slowly getting things put away ~
Sweet Clara, so very happy ~
Wishing you a wonderful Saturday dear friends!!
