Rednesday - old and new

Today I'd like to share with you the book I'm reading for an online book club, Girl of the Limberlost bu Gene Stratton Porter, with its dull red suede cover. This book is truly just holding together, almost every page is loose, but I'm loving reading it again.


I love the embossing on the front


And for something much more RED and cheery here is a card I made a few weeks ago, complete with cherries and glitter!

Click here to see other's red goodies, and click on the image below to see other vintage goodies!


And now I really should go and find that washing sitting languishing in the machine so long while I sit blogging ...

OH I LOVE Gene Stratton Porter books, and that one is one of the BEST.

Actually, Gene was from just a few miles north of here in Indiana, and her books are set right here too!!!

Thanks for showing us this really cool book.

I love old books. Have you ever visited The Gutenberg Project?" There are lots of old books online and you can read them without that dusty feeling!
