Français Rose Livres~1829

I have been on the hunt for almost a year for these fabulous books, finally I was successful and found 6 of these gorgeous pink antique French books dated 1829.

I'm not a big "pink" lover, but these lovelies certainly make me a fan of their soft petal colored paper covers.
Thank you to Simone of "Fleaing France" for selling me these beauties!!~

Happy Saturday~

I was visiting Kates beautiful blog at Salvage Dior and read that you gifted her that rustic cabinet :) It looks divine in her home and I wanted you to not go un-noticed with what we saw as to adding beauty to someone elses life, and home (Kates home).
