thrift store finds part four.. my favorite!

and here is my favorite find of the week. it is a big vintage scrapbook made by a very sentimental lady. the cute thing about this is that i have a very similar one myself.
this vintage one is filled with cards from sally and martin to each other. mementos of their courtship.. dried flowers, a few pics of the couple, cards from their wedding and engagement. lots of sweet and pretty things. it's sad to me that this might have ended up in the garbage. they were are very sweet couple who seem to have loved each other alot. i hope they had a very happy life together!

even the cover is pretty.


carefully saved dried flowers throughout the book.

What a neat find! I love looking at old wedding albums and baby books.

Seeing this book and how beautiful it is makes me feel better about my own wedding album. It is more a collection of mementos than a pretty "scrapbook" type thing.

Seeng that beautiful old book makes me think one day someone will appreciate looking at mine- hopefully. Very neat!

Wow! That's an awesome thrift store find! Scrapbooks are such a personal, sentimental thing and the woman who made this one obviously put her heart into it. It's gorgeous!
