One day recently I came home from work to find a package sitting by the door on my kitchen porch. I knew what it was instantly, and I couldn’t wait to get inside.
Donna at Distressed Donna Down Home had a giveaway a little while ago and I was one of the very lucky winners.
Here’s what I found when I opened the box. A bundle wrapped in a pretty fabric ribbon and flower.
Oh my… what a fabulous sight to behold!
The giveaway was a dollar value of merchandise from her Distressed Donna etsy shop or something she had showed in a post on her blog that she was planning to sell.In an earlier post she had showed a giant load of sheet music and mentioned that she’d be selling some, so I asked her if she had any that was Christmas… and boy did she. She very kindly emailed me some pics and I was ecstatic with what she chose.
My mind is just spinning with project ideas.
I’m so excited to start playing!!
Music on the page is just as beautiful to me as written words in a book.
There’s just nothing like it!
The Messiah book is dated from 1912. How crazy is that? I knew its condition was a little rough, but I really wanted it because I won’t feel guilty about using the pages in projects. It has 250 pages of beautifully aged perfection.
Donna also included a few fun Santa tags, and some lovely vintage Christmas post cards.
I had no idea that people used to send Christmas post cards in the old days. I love that these are addressed and have messages on them.
Thanks a million Donna. You are the rust goddess of awesomeness.
I love, love, love it all!
