The natural history of Oxfordshire. ••• ••• ••• I remember traveling to England after graduating high school; we stopped in Oxford briefly and I remember being absolutely mesmerized by the architecture, libraries, and museums, particularly the Ashmolean Museum (@ashmoleanmuseum). Robert Plot was the first keeper of Elias Ashmole’s collection and he contributed immensely to the field of natural studies. Plot described his geological/archaeological discoveries around Oxfordshire in this book, later doing the same for Staffordshire. ••• This book features the first known depiction of a dinosaur bone, that of a megalosaurus. ••• #naturalhistory #oxford #ashmolean #geology #archaeology #antiquarian #rarebooks #rare #bibliophile #oldbooks #old #antiquebooks #antique #vintagebooks #shelfie #instabook #booksofinstagram #library #bookstagram #librariesofinstagram #book #books #booknerd #booklover #bookworm #history #medical #medicalhistory #medicine #reading

It's been so long since I posted!! The kids have kept me crazy busy with two in soccer, two running track and one about to graduate!! This is the lovely tool box I found a couple of months ago. I was looking for something to display in it and when I found all these iron stone lids that were missing their partners, I knew exactly where I wanted to put them❤️❤️ I added a very chippy window to the mix and I just love the results!! #vintageporchlovesvintage #ironstonecrushin #fleamarketfinds #vintagestyle #ironstone #vintagewindow #whitechippypaint #chippy #chippypaint #oldtoolbox #rustytreasures #vintagetoolbox #oldbooks

I have heard that books change with the people who read them ... how like scents, they can bring back memories of the exact time and place you last opened it. When last I dusted the cover of my mom’s classic book collection, I was taken back to the mornings we spent reading together. I remembered, with perfect clarity, the smell of rose water on her skin, the scent of ink and old paper caught between the lines ... memory, like an old friend, a story folded within a story… . . . #oldbooks #classicbooks #memories #scent #reading #modernluxury #beauty #smell #oldpages #onlyscentremains #1229 #janeausten #emilybronte #janeeyre #prideandprejudice #wutheringheights

Happy Thursday friends! 🤗 Hubby and I are on our way back from picking up 21 pieces of Milk Glass!! I found them on a garage sale site for $2.00 a piece, I just couldn’t pass them up at that price! 🙆🏼‍♀️ Before we head to dinner I want to share for a tag from my bestie Renee @dugansgirls for #shethriftedthat ❤️Everything in the photo was found at local thrift stores in my area with the exception of the greenery and the small tin, it was given to me by Hubby’s Grandfather! ❤️ Happy Friday Eve everyone! 😍 #thriftstorefinds #goodwill #thriftyshopper #baskets #oldbooks #greenery #linens #milkglass #vintage #tin

Until very recently I had not picked up a paintbrush in over 2 years. Through my grief, I turned away from many things that have always brought me peace and clarity. I am forever grateful to those who have pushed and inspired me to find my way back to things I love....

Hey hey, it’s #firsteditionfriday again and I have another Rumer Godden for you 🤗 . Little Plum is the sequel to the better known Miss Happiness and Miss Flower. It is my favourite book of hers, and this beautiful, almost new copy is my only edition. I don’t have a ratty one for reading, so just have to be extra careful when putting my sticky paws all over it. #firsteditionproblems 😂 . This isn’t the first edition mystery parcel from my story over the weekend. The days are so much shorter now, and between work and weekends away, I have had no daylight hours to take decent book photos. Very soon, I promise! • 1963 | Little Plum by Rumer Godden.

I received this 1922 second edition of English Fairy Tales from my Aunt Margaret (my mom's best friend) back in 1997, when I was just 8 years old. She received it from her grandfather when she was an 8 year old in 1929! She died a few years ago, and it's nice to have something beautiful and special to remember her by ❤️ I was tagged by @pagesforwings to do the #meetthebookstagrammer tag! Thank you! 🌻Where are you from? Ottawa, Ontario -- Canada! 🌻When did you start your account? I started this account a few years ago, but I made it into a bookstagram mid-February, 2018. Don't scroll too far down my feed, because things get weird.🙈 🌻Would you rather be an author or a publisher? Definitely an author! And I will be one, someday, I hope!🖋 🌻Stand-alone or series?

This beautiful miniature presents ''The Twelve Apostoles'', with Peter and Paul at the top. The illuminator, Jacobello di Salerno, signed his first two known choir books as the copyist of the text and music, as well as the illuminator. Item to be found at @guentherrarebooks 🗺📚.

“Windows.” 6.25 x 6.25. Vintage book cover and mixed media on board. I have a bag of thousands of stamps from Japan - tiny works of art. Also lots of these little cloth pieces (technically called “headbands”) found at the top and bottom of book spines.

On this day in 1989, a great author, Daphne Du Maurier died. "Rebecca" is definitely one of my favourites. The cat jumped into the shot as I was taking it.

#tbt to fashion silhouettes through the ages. A page from the second edition of Ethel Traphagen’s “Costume Design and Illustration,” 1944. A book that was clearly loved by its original owner, Marian Blanche Ciappa, who used it in 1944 “for classes” at the Traphagen School of Fashion. Swipe to the second photo to see the inscription. I love it when my passion for fashion, costuming, history, books, and old things comes together. — #historicalfashion #historicalcostume #oldbooks #happyplace at The New Orleans Costume Center
