Engrossed in old books

Hollidays are time for relaxing. I´ve been engaged in making old books..and finding out, how they actually look. Some labels on the christmas presents inspired me and provided material for the mauve and gold books. Then I found a blue piece of old paper and started to study the few real old books, that I own. I love the old Aladdin book of Adam Oehlenschläger, The pages are printed gold in the ends. It made me work a little bit further with the Aladdin theme, so I added the table and the other stuff. Of course I´ll need an oil lamp too!

  1. Wow, the books are fabulous Susanne. The Aladdin theme is so interesting, the bottles are beautiful, the little table quite unique.

  2. Thank you Norma, you´re so kind to me!

  3. Wow... once again a beautiful tableau from you :0) The books are great (can I use a term as great when I refer to tiny things) And the table...another reminisens from "old days". I have one too. I really love the "amber-look" with the tall bottle and the jars, and especially the lion...

  4. Boken er helt fantastisk!
