For the Love of Old

One book that's been on my list for a while is For the Love of Old by Mary Randolph Carter.  I have a few of her Junk books and love them all.  My mom bought the book for me for Christmas but couldn't wait to give it to me, so she gave it to me this week.  I love it!  The book is huge with beautiful photography, and her writing is wonderful.  Of course it's the stuff itself that I like looking at so much.  The real junky-junk is what she likes--the very chipped and worn, previously loved and discarded.  Someone's trash is her treasure.  Here's a peek into For the Love of Old.
You can see a lot more of her personal style here on The Selby. Be sure to check it out if you like what you see here.  It's a great post with beautiful pictures.
