The Beauty of Paper.....

                                       Pages torn out of old books taped to rough walls...
                                           
                                             old love letters on the mantle....
                                             spices wrapped and tied.....
                                                   postcards sent a lifetime ago...
                                                  they are all beautiful...and I for one could not decorate without them.Hope you all have a wonderful day....I am so glad you took the time to stop by...xoxo

I LOVE THIS - I am getting ready to 'mount' pages from an old calendar on a wall and really need some inspiration on exactly how to do it! Perfect timing.
Thank you so much for sharing. Happy Valentine's Day

Great idea! I've seen you do that in other posts and always liked it. Using those in your decor really brings a sense of nostalgia to your home.

This is simplicity at its very best. I LOVE your home, Chrissy, and think you are an amazingly gifted lady. When something so simple can be so beautiful, you know you are good. :)

God bless you on this Valentine's Day. May the love of Christ fill you to overflowing.

I love the spices and I often decorate with old postcards. However, if I taped old pages to the wall it would simply look like I'd lost my mind. In your house, it is art. Why is that??

looks so peaceful Chrissy...I love tattered edges on books - so great to see on your walls - fits that room nicely with the textured walls I think :)

love,

So gorgeous!
I'm doing something very similar here at our house, too...the torn out book pages. My husband thinks it's sacrilege to tear a book apart, they just don't understand! ;-)

XOXO,
Anne
