Dusty old dust jackets

It’s the Queen’s Birthday long weekend in this part of the world. We get Monday off – along with the washing, I have some plans!

I have come across some lovely old books lately. I think the art work on the dust jackets is so charming.

I think they would look great enlarged made into artworks for a vintage themed home.

I have also had some luck in finding 1950’s art prints recently.

This one called “Sea Scape” no artist, is in the living room – the colours are perfect for that room.

The “Nutcracker Suite” is much more restful so its going into the sewing/guest room, where I have visions of creating a Kate Spade Gallery Wall, I hope I can get this little project up this long weekend. Do you have any plans for home decoration or sewing this weekend?
