We picked up some beautiful antique books at the Book Market today.
I'll be listing these in Rue 15 Vintage soon.
They are just absolutely beautifully well made - intricate - little objects of history.
L can never get me out of the book market when we go.
I could just stay and look all day!
This is a very petite prayer book - it is still in very good condition - and it even had a few prayer cards stuck in between the pages.
Raised leather spine, leather tooling, beautiful decorative end sheets - it's just lovely.
That is just one gorgeous book!
Oh and my very reliable source let us know that Laduree actually had a fire last October!
Oh no - we had no idea! We peeked at pictures showing smoke pluming out of the building. So, hopefully it will be up and running again soon as a tea house.
In the meantime...
The macaroons are still super delicious.
