Can't tell a book by its cover....

I just had to tell you about 2 books that I have discovered while visiting friends homes. While I was at the Quiant old Homes meeting this month at Jo Carols -I fell in love with "The Psalms of David" and with the rest of the house too! My friend Kaye introduced me to "The Country Diary of an Edwardian lady" last year. I decided I would look on Amazon and make the purchase of these 2 books and I was so pleased that I got them for a song! What a deal for this book lover! I have loved pouring over them this week and reading them but mainly looking at the drawings on each page. I would love to be able to draw and write like this. I sit and wonder if these authors were kinda like the bloggers of today. Writing and creating a pretty page for others to share. Every single page is illustrated just like the ones pictured on this blog. All 200 pages of beauty!

For this nature lover and Christian These books are a treat to look through and read.....

"The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady" by Edith Holden







"The Psalms of David "by James S. Freemantle

What is so amazing to me is the fact that these books were written and illustrated in the early 1900s.Off to dream of writting and drawing like these authors......
