  1. I love vintage books, also. The tabs on any of the books are attention getting, but I never thought about them as decor … great ideas. Large, thick, tabbed dictionaries are a favorite.

      Yes, those books with tabs are the best! You can also find them on cookbooks and old manuals, as well as dictionaries.

  2. Oh, I have a Bible with those tabs. I guess I need to display it prominently again.

  3. Yes, you’ve convinced me! Now I want to go out and look for some old books with tabs! These are such cute ideas. I have some old books I need to go find and decorate with. Thanks for sharing at Thursday Favorite Things!

    Thanks Lora. I am a collector of old dictionaries. I don’t know how many I have but I just keep picking them up. Stacking some of my bigger ones would be interesting. Have a great weekend.

      I bed your stack will be bigger than mine, Marlene;) Have fun decorating with them!

  5. Lora, I get so excited when I get an email telling me you’ve posted. Those tabs definitely remind me of the days when I used to play word games with my dad and those paper-thin dictionary pages. Thanks for the reminder. Now I have to collect those. 🙂

      Aw, your comment brought a tear to my eye, Stacey; thanks so much! I’m glad I brought a good memory back…and glad I gave you a reason to go vintage shopping;)

  6. I love those books too, Lora; the tabs just give them added interest!

      I know, right? I’d never really noticed them before…but I sure am now!
