Age Old Tree’s Literary Corner

Can I show you something really gorgeous?

Yeah, that’s it.

This has totally changed my life.

Amazing, right?

Best. Thing. Ever.

So this is the beautiful work of Ann Marie at Age Old Tree, who took a 1922 edition of Les Mis that she bought for $6 and turned a humble corner of her home into a fantastically romantic statement. I know, I know – tearing up an antique book is a pretty scary thing to start doing, but just look at how successfully it has worked out – a little risk and a lot of reward.

I love these. I LOVE these. I love love love love love these.

AND, even better, they’re totally useable! OK, so you can’t put them through the dishwasher, but that’s fine, right?
