Those wonderful hard-bound books of old that were found in libraries and schoolrooms are finding a new purpose with the help of Michelle Sanders of Attic Journals. Taking the vintage books that were bound for dumpsters and landfills, new life is breathed into every gorgeous product.
I am partial to the romantically divine book page garlands myself.
Although thinking of the blank pages wrapped in vintage book pages and covers speaks to my writer’s heart and would to any writer, doodler, planner, inventor, or Lego engineer of any age.
I remember my first journal with a little lock that I kept secrets and dreams. These journals feel like they can keep a secret too, between bits of a story. Perfect for the soul that needs to put pen to paper and follow where they lead.
Think of the last time you sent a handwritten note to someone just because. Think of the smile these hidden cards wrapped in a fanciful page would delight.
“Attic Journals began on a sleepy Saturday morning in 2004 when she happened upon a beautiful tattered book at a San Luis Obispo garage sale. With an immediate need of having an original gift for a friend’s birthday celebration that evening, she headed home to re-purpose the book and Attic Journals were born.
These days they hail from Portland, Oregon– known for it’s roses, it’s DIY and maybe a little less known for the taco trucks that seem to be taking over every corner on the southeast side. We love it here. You would too.”
I love local businesses and I adore handmade and I am hopelessly happy to share them with everyone I know. Attic Journals products can be found online at their shop and at shops & shows around the US and Canada.
*I received products from Attic Journals to review, however I have purchased some products on my own. All opinions are my own. I am offering some of these products as a giveaway.
