A Wilderness Byway Spread


It's been a few days now since I last made a spread for my Vintage Gluebook due to gardening duties and simply sitting in the sunshine reading! But I missed it, so today gathered up some of my new vintage books (now there's a contradiction in terms!) and started to cut things out till I had a selection to choose from. Everything on this spread is truely vintage apart from the blue strips which were a gift from our teacher Mary Green (but of course originally also vintage).

The image of the peaceful cottage on the right comes from a selection of the Badminton Magazine published in 1897. It's probably widely available still as I only paid £3 for it which made it much easier to cut into it. The monk as well as the boat come from a bound issue of a children's magazine called Chatterbox, published in 1907. It is in quite bad condition and the only damage to my purse was £0.50!!
