MOST RECENT

Back to school today. I'm not entirely sure what my posting schedule will be like because of that, but I've got seven pictures done so I'll post those until I run out! .

Did you read Hardy Boys or Nancy Drew when you were younger? I usually read Hardy Boys; they were some of my favorite books! .

Browsing the bookshelves to find my next great adventure. Am i the only one that loves the smell of a paperback? 📚 📖 #oldbooks #oldbooksmell #bookstagram #bookworm #booksofinstagram #weebookshop

If I could go back to seventeen and study whatever it is that gets me the job preserving the old books, I’d do it. #dreamjob #mysoulishappyhere #oldbooksmell

This beautiful old book caught my eye today sitting on the shelf. A poetical work of Eliza Cook.
I was drawn to the gorgeous gold leaf, the intricate patterns on the cover and the very old world gold page edges.
I opened up the book and was delighted by the 18th centrury illustrations and the poetry within the red bordered pages. As well as the inscription on the inside of the front cover dating back to March 12th 1893.
As I turned the pages a card dropped out. A thank you card handwritten which read "to the most wonderful mother in the world, and not fogetting the most beautiful." My heart melted, what a loving son, giving the gift of poetry to his beautiful mother.
I kept turning the pages and then discovered 3 small black and white photos of a couple of handsomly dresed gents, possibly from the early 1900's.

I feel like im holding some amazing history in my hands and feel so incredibly privelaged to currently have this book in our possession.
So many treasures to discover in 2nd hand bookshops.

Is it just me, or is there something about cookbooks that is intoxicating. Flicking through pages of beautiful food and recipes, I find it almost therapeutic.
I do have my favorite recipe books that i use time and time again, and which have marked pages, hand written notes and sticky finger prints. But its delightful to explore new books and new recipes.
I must admit I love reading the blurbs from the authors about where the recipe came from, who it was handed down from or that special occassion when it is cooked.

Food always conjurs up such lovely memories of meals with family, dinner parties with friends, teaching children to cook or even those precious memories of grandparents cooking traditional dishes.

Essentially its the food that brings us together but its the memories that stay.
I wonder if this is why I love reading cookbooks so much. Or perhaps its that love of feeding people something that hopefully they will remember in years to come.
Either way..I'm at my happiest pouring over the pages of cookbooks with a cup of tea and something delicious to eat!

I started Goodbye, Paris, which was my Book of the Month club pick for August. I’m not too far in but I am really enjoying it so far!
QOTD: Do you have a city or setting that you enjoy books to be set in? I love books about Paris, and also I like small-town books!

The smell of old books. (I’m not pregnant, i just had my diner...) #paris#books#oldbooksmell#LPlooks#lookoftheday#outfit#travel

Good morning. I have had a lot of requests from people wanting to know what is in my collection of books that came from my grandfather’s library. In the two months since they got to my house, I haven’t even finished opening boxes, let alone organize and categorize them all. Swipe through the photos for a totally random selection of beauties from when I was packing them up. .

Flea market finds...a whole load of used stamps for collages, a Nimbus 2000 pin and Tangled Wood Tales by Nathaniel Hawthorne. This book has been on my list of books to get, the reprint has sat in my Amazon shopping cart for a long, long while. And now I have it! ❤💜
