A Book of Inspiration

Hello friends!
Today I want to share with you this really inspirational book that I bought the other day on Amazon. It's called, "Masquerade: Costume Inspirations from the 1920's to the 1950's".

It's a beautiful book! I knew when I saw the cover that I would enjoy it!


I was pleasantly surprised that the pages were filled with LOTS of beautiful images to inspire creating!


There is not much reading to this book, which was fine with me as I wanted the book for the illustrations.


At a great price I think this book will be great fun!
If you would like this book too, you can find it here on Amazon.

Wishing you a lovely weekend, Lindsey
