The Gallery - Vintage...


Once again joining Tara's Sticky Fingers blog for The Gallery ... the theme this week is Vintage.


I don't own a lot of really old things, but perhaps one that I treasure is this gorgeous leather bound book which belonged to my grandmother. The Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame was first printed in 1908. This is a 26th edition, printed in 1927. It has her name hand written in the front in her own writing. I like to think that she read and enjoyed this story many times just as I have.

If you would like to join in too, please take a look at Sticky Fingers!
