Book of Love

Greetings Friends!



Today I would like to share with you a beautiful little book that I found in an antique store.




When I discovered it and saw the beautiful pages I thought it would be perfect to share with you this
Valentine's day.





The pictures are lithographs and the colors are still so vivid.


To see the pages up close and read the words of love, just click on the pictures.



There was not a copyright date on the book, but I would guess it to be from the late 1800's to early 1900's.



I hope you've enjoyed seeing this little treasure.
May you be blessed with a wonderful weekend!
Twyla

What a beautiful little book. It begs the age-old question, "Oh, I wonder, wonder who....who..who wrote the book of love." (Sorry, this sick puppy couldn't resist.) lol
Have a great day!

Twyla, I think you should have been a Victorian. In my mind you are a very elegant person. Please tell Lindsey there are two pink birds headed her way for Valentine's Day! She was very enthusiastic in her comment about them (she is just too cute!) I absolutely love your multi-colored mushrooms. Thanks as well for the beautiful Valentine's. I think we all have enough for hundreds of days of crafting! Elizabeth
