{nostalgic for : scrapbooks}

. . . my grandmère in france has the most beautiful memory books filled with magical things, and it is perhaps for this reason that am always quite nostalgic for the look and feel of them -- souvenirs glued and taped to worn pages, pretty polaroids and bits of lace, sunny afternoons and lost memories of summers past . . .

{p.s.} more lovely pages

I'm with you on this one! I love scrapbooks too. They are timeless keepsakes! I need to make more time for scrapbooking actually. I set it all aside, but don't get around to putting them together! You've inspired me tho! These are great images :)

oh me too!
I am the family historian, so everyone send items, photos, trinkets and such to me. I then make books and shadow boxes of them.

vicky -- your scrapbook sounds like a wonderful keepsake and must be such fun to look through!

sara -- the same here -- a beautiful collection of photographs, but still empty scrapbooks waiting to be filled -- if only there were more hours . . .

bumpkin on a swing -- hilarious! and so to the point -- true enough, but somehow still always miss turning the pages

rachel -- thank you!

callie -- how lovely! + shadow boxes, even -- will you come over and do mine as well? :)

leslie -- an absolute pleasure! lovely to hear from you and hope things are well
