Ok, so I may not be that young anymore but the title of this book intrigued me
I couldn't find a publication date but the last copyright listed was 1902.
Who wouldn't read further after this dedication
The chapter titles are so quaint
Did you know there were such things as the evils of dress?
I love the feel of this book and the age and I love thinking about the young ladies who would have read this book in preparation for their marriage and I imagine what they must have been feeling.
I decided to use my new book in a coffee table vignette.
I used pages from an old bible I bought from the Op shop because of its colour and the texture of the cover. The pages in the bible were falling out and perfect to use for my display. I rolled the pages up and tied them with ribbon or string to create my bowl of wisdom.
I can't remember where I saw the idea but I loved it, so if this is your idea, thank you.
I used the bible, the adorable book of knowledge for young wives and my gorgeous cloche and stand that my WH bought me for my last birthday to make a display of some of my favourite things.
Have a great weekend everyone!
I am linking up to Jessica's Favourite things Friday, pop over and have a look. Great weekend reading!
