Give Me Another A

Posted by Picasa

I love A's...wish I'd made more of them in school.  Tall Husband recently bought this "A" for me from Installations Antiques.  The decoupaged graphics are wonderful and are from an 1863 "Frank Leslie's Ladies Magazine," according to a handwritten note on the bottom of the "A."

Speaking of making A's, this could be an interesting project.  The pasteboard letters are available at craft stores.  Just buy your favorite letter; photocopy your favorite antique drawings, and decoupage onto your letter.  Voila!  Inexpensive luxury.
