White Wednesday, Christmas Gift Books

A few years ago I found my first old
Christmas "Gift Book".
Their petite size and precious graphics of Christmas
caused me to begin a search for them.

These are from the 1880's until 1913.
Sweet inscriptions of love and devotion;
friendships and relationships,
most dated "Christmas Eve".

They are displayed on my Italianate
black desk in the Living Room.

This is the oldest from 1888, in pristine condition.
Entitled "A Bugle Song and Other Poems".

"Kept for the Master's Use". Love the title.

Here is a daytime shot of our tree in the Living Room.
Next post I'll show the rest of the Living Room.

Please go by and see Kathleen at
and the rest of the
 White Wednesday participants.
I'm sure there is plenty of gorgeous
White Christmas to be enjoyed!

Have a Wonderful White Wednesday!
