Sometimes I think I should have been born in the 1800's! Then I think about no electricity, no indoor bath or water and no computer!!
Since I don't live in the 1800's I am always trying to find ways to "age" everyday things! Take my very ugly record book, I can't function without it, it has all the necessary information in it! So the answer for me is to cover it just like the children did in the old days!! I can just see them sitting by the fire with Mom's rag bag making covers for their school books!
|THESE ARE TWO OF MY FAVORITE OLD BOOKS, THE ONE ON THE TOP IS A CHILD'S SCHOOL BOOK. THE ONE ON THE BOTTOM IS AN OLD RECORD BOOK.|
I have sold some on my picturetrail site, here are some examples!
|THIS IS MY FAVORITE, I STITCHED FRENCH KNOTS AROUND THE EDGES.|
|A CLOSEUP OF THE FRENCH KNOTS!|
|HERE IS THE INSIDE|
|VERY AGED SMALL ONE, GOOD FOR MY PURSE|
|THIS ONE IS DOWNRIGHT GRUDGY!!!|
|THIS ONE COMES IN RED OR THIS BLUE.|
All of these are available for purchase. You decide which fabric you would like and if you want the candlewicking. The large journals are $18.00 and the small $12.00

This is a picture of my desk, with all of the old and the new!!!
These are a few of my favorite aged everyday things!
Look around your house and see if there are some things that you use everyday that can be aged! Its a great way to spend the rest of the HOT summer!!
Send us your pictures and inspire us!!!
I wish you a cooler and fun week!!
