~ Perfectly faded ~



I just love antique books and millinery roses...
These are some photos I took this week ...

LOVE the faded colours...pale blues..greens..pinks...

Mixed antique millinery flowers with my pretty pink roses from my husband...he knows what flowers I love..
such a sweet man....


Perfectly faded and worn....

I love collecting old books...
such timeworn character and charm....

Perfection....



The more faded and tattered the better....
in my opinion....
 

Perfectly faded....simply beauty.

Also...
Beautiful Vintage Italian Tole Roses Compote Pedestal
 Italian tole compote just listed in my Etsy shop

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

So pretty! I love to find little books like these - they are so often in such poor shape. Your photos are so lovely - as always!
