Decorating is endless.
Cooking never ends.
Gardens are always changing.
And best of all shopping goes on and on!

Hence the name,
Open Ended!

A Flea Market Find!

On the Second Sunday of each month & the Saturday before,
you can find a very lovely Flea Market in Grayslake Illlinois.
And...... my daughter-in-law and I were
lucky enough to make it there this month!
What a fun time we had!
We came across quite a few interesting treasures.

 I found theses little numbers!

Now I am a lover of books!
I love to smell them, hold them, read them and
store them on a bookcase where I can
admire all the books I have read!

But I have never seen anything like this before!
Some might be offended that someone
would do this to a perfectly good book.
But that's the thing, these are books that were in bad shape.
 Many with missing covers and pages!

I think they would be great on your desk 
to stuff notes in or to display postcards.
I think vintage french postcards would make a wonderful display.
{I might need to go postcard shopping!}
  Or how about special cards that you have received.
Or even old family photos! 

So Cool!

I love these little book holders....I hope you do too!

Have a fabulous weekend!
