Livre de couture peu ordinaire

What an amazing find this little blog from France. Even though I took French in High School (Spanish was my first language), I still read it quite slowly. Here is her post of a textile journal. I love looking at the images in her Histoire tab.
Have a great weekend!

Curiosités de Titam

L’usage de manuels pour apprendre à faire telle ou telle chose est très répandu, même avant que l’imprimerie ne s’empare de ce filon d’édition. Chirurgie, cuisine, arts en tout genre, et autres travaux manuels. Admirez ainsi cet ouvrage exquis, destiné à instruire les jeunes filles d’une école de Kildare (Dublin, Irlande), et qui date des années 1830 (1837).

Sandy Bryan Vintage Home

I am a person who loves buying, selling and displaying all things vintage. I have always collected vintage but began selling (seriously) when an interior consultant advised me that I had too many collections and needed to share my things at her Paris Flea Market. It was through that experience that I realized I loved to display and share my finds with others; passing along the story of the object, and helping find a place for it in their homes.
I am proud of all the experience I have amassed over the past 10 years, beginning at selling the local college flea markets with my sister, to now some of the best Antique shows in the country. Now, I love producing antique shows with my family and bringing together great talent and vintage items for others to find...while of course, shopping and selling along the way! I hope to see you at the shows..it would be my pleasure to show you some great stuff!
Best, Sandy...
