This is what I'm working on right now. As you can see I'm in the middle of my project to protect and save these amazing 1930's cards and mementos from further damage.
We were shopping one of our favorite antique malls recently when my husband brought this beautiful old scrapbook to my attention. "I think you're going to love this," he said. So we bargained and got the price down to an acceptable (not such a thrifty find after all but still awesome) and brought it home.
But I discovered that many of the cards were damaged from minor water spills and bending from people flipping through the book. The book is heavy (with treasures) so it weighs down on the little cards of long ago.
So I am taking it apart so the cards can be saved. It's really a challenge but I'm loving every minute of it.
