Pretty Little Pages

Detail of accessory cabinet in Studio

I've been playing around in the Studio lately. I'm trying to make it both functional and pretty, while at the same time putting my vintage finds (okay, obsessions) on display, instead of hiding them away, never to have their moment in the Sun. . . 

One of the ways I showcased some of these pretty little pages I've been collecting was to place some behind the glass fronts of an old (cheap-to-begin-with) accessory cabinet. Now, what once featured paint-laden hairdryers and (never-used) die cut machines, has been dressed up with vintage 1944 Golden Dictionary pages. 

Vintage is now new again. . .
