Dance Cards and Antiques

Finds at a small/crowded antique shop at the Green Dragon flea market and auction
25c buttons for 75c. Oh well, they're sweeeet!

Adorable mini book. I'm currently working on a children's fairy tales altered books so I especially love finding this one.
Another classic. Isn't the cover wonderful!Sweet graphics and I just loved the chapter number in color instead of the usual black.

This one was a larger book and surprisingly stapled. That's the method of binding for this book. I thought it was quite unique for me anyway.Inside of A Tale of Roses.

Cards I received for the dance card swap Nancy/D from the Altered_stArt yahoo group.

The beautiful inside
From Peggy Horan - See the metal ball attached to this one; it opens up like a locket to put 2 tiny photos. So neat!
