I have a little tea for one today. When it is winter I get more creative with my centerpieces out of necessity.
Have any of you noticed these vintage books in the shops or catalogs. It is an old copy of a hardbound book with the cover ripped off. I have been seeing them frequently and I thought I would create some. I got mine at the thrift store. I first looked for all of the books with a blue tag; those were 50% off, and then I picked out the thickest and most yellowed page books I could find. The best results are with the hardbound books, you get a real vintagey look from the ripped off binding. They make great risers for your vignettes. I made the cloche out of an old clock. You can read about that here.
Tea pot and cup were from TJ Maxx.
