L.M. Montgomery Journals

I found these delightful diaries at a used book store for a total of $15. The first volume begins with entries from Mongomery at age 15, and chronicles her friendships, school adventures, career development, and maturing introspection. She certainly had plenty of men falling head over heels for her! The journal entries are charming, witty, honest, and absolutely enthralling, and I can't get my hands on the next 3 volumes fast enough!

Green Gables Tea Cup

I found this sweet teacup and saucer at a local thrift store for $1. It's the same house and garden illustration as on the dish in the post below, but this one is coloured in!

Golden Art Nouveau

I found this brass candle holder at a flea market for $6. I love its curvy asymmetry and lily of the valley details.

Those Hours With You

Oh what a dreamer's delight! I found this sweet illustrated poem at Value Village for $1.99, bundled with 3 other tiny frames--bonus! The 1700s themed illustration, gilded details, and reflective verses thrill my soul. It looks like framed Maurine Hathaway prints were a popular piece of 1920s d├ęcor.
