Autograph Albums

Did you have an autograph book when you were little? I did- it must have been a 70's thing. With today's technology, nobody wants your autograph anymore, you just exchange 'contact info'- yick. Being an old fashion kind of girl, i love collecting and reading these sweet little books.

This is written on the inside cover

They all are filled with sentimental rhymes and verse. This one has the dearest sepia photo's.

I love those bird pictures!
There are also a few water colors

Such good advice!

This is my favorite book. It's small, and made up of a soft green leather. Under the bow, you can see how bright the original color once was.

The owner used it to keep track of bridal gifts {she received a lot of lace doilies!}

This is the oldest autograph book i own. It's tiny, and the inscription inside touches my heart.

"Lizzie, From your Dear Papa, Michigan City, 1879"

It is filled with quaint rhymes, beautiful ink drawings, and Victorian stickers.

Some of it is in German {i think}

This book was my paternal great grandmothers. A lovely collection of verses that correspond with a space to write your friends birthdays. I found my fathers name written down in his little boy hand writing- so cute!
Here my Great Aunts married names are entered- they were twins!

I love this picture if them together ♡ I never got to meet Melva, but Mernie and her sister Maybel were wonderful Great Aunts to me.

Well, time to let the puppy out {again!}

Hope you have a lovely weekend!
