I love books, old, new… there’s something about the written word…
There’s a fabulous trend in the art world right now ~ at least I think it’s fabulous ~ upcycling old, used, forgotten, discarded, landfill filling books into some quietly lovely, warm and comforting, works of art.
I found this Dahlia wreath in an etsy shop recently ~ Artfully Yours By Jen. It looked simply stunning in the shop and I knew it needed a home to come home to, and so, I succumbed. When it arrived at my door, I hung it on one of the salvaged windows in my embroidery studio. Now, I can admire it while I’m punching and dream of all the books I’ve loved ~ past, present and even future!
