PRETTY BOOK COVERS......

Full Of Shabby Chic Charm......
1930s Vintage Wallpaper......

Retro Union Jack......

Very Jane Austen......
Vintage Roses And Burlap......
 I love vintage books with a passion and my current favorites can be found HERE.  Inspired by these beautiful covers I have designed some of my own to use when decorating some of my more mundane paperbacks.

These book covers add a certain charm to tired old books and I cannot wait to begin dressing up my old library of books.  These take me back to my school days in England when we had to cover our school books with brown paper and put our name on the front.  These would look so much prettier!

I hope that you love them as much as I do.  I know that this is not a new idea but I wanted to put a different spin on an old tradition, have fun!

  1. Hi Maureen,
    Oh these are wonderful. I love the way your created them with all the details. I too remember having to cover our books and sometime we would use brown grocery bags without the ads and then decorate them.
    I love your vintage roses and burlap design.

    Thank you for stopping by while I have been on vacation. So nice to see you and your kind comments always bless me. Going to go browse your shoppe now. Hope you have a wonderful rest of the week.
    Hugs, Celestina Marie
