found: vintage photo book
Awww...Snap! I couldn't resist. This vintage photo book, labeled "Snaps!", was just calling out for some pop culture references. Snaps for me!
This is another one of those things that I found in with family stuff, and I snapped it up for myself. It kind of makes me think of the original Parent Trap movie, with it's slight camp feeling. Wood covers, leather ties...you can see where I get that thought, right?
The book comes to me empty, and I'm not sure if I like that or not. Finding a book like this that has been filled in with snaps from another time is like finding treasure, but I suppose having the option to fill it myself is pretty great too. And it wouldn't take long to fill it either, because it only has six pages. Six! Does that seem strange to anyone but me?
I do really like the construction of this, especially with the wood covers. It's a nice variation on the scrapbooks with posts, and I'm sure that you could add pages to this. But maybe the leather wouldn't like the untying process. Even opening and closing it too much will wear it out. Sigh. I'll still enjoy this as is...
A book for snaps is too good to not use as inspiration though, so I've been working on an eco-friendly book for holding your photos or other memories. Tutorial coming very soon!
