When Dreams Come True!

With Valentine's Day right around the corner, I've decided to share this sweet handmade booklet which I recently discovered at an antique mall. The author of this booklet entitled, When Dreams Come True, tells us of a life long ago and speaks to us of love as she unfolds her dreams for the future. So dear! So nostalgic! Enjoy!













Today, I am participating in RUBY TUESDAY hosted by
WORK OF THE POET.

  7. Oh Coralie Sweetie...
    This is just beautiful. I so love this little red book and its' contents. She took the time to share a piece of history, and you took the time to purchase and share and preserve it. I thank you so much. I enjoyed each and every picture right down to her home. How beautiful.

    Give my little Bonnie and Carrie a big hug around the neck. I pray they are both healthy.

    Country hugs and so much love...Sherry

  11. That is, indeed, a wonderful book! I love old-fashioned things and it is wonderful to glimpse into the past and see that in, many ways, people then were not much different than us..even though the details might be different. What a find!
