Thank you all for entering my first giveaway! Your comments made this experience so nice that I want to repeat it again in February! So check back soon for more giveaways!

My first giveaway is now closed. Thank you so much to all of the participants, your kind comments and positive feedback about my work were greatly appreciated! I will return later today to announce the winning number! 


I’ve always liked the idea of giving away something made by me. Before starting on Etsy I used to offer my books to my family and friends. Now I’m thinking it’s time to offer one of my miniature vintage journals to someone out there who enjoys my work.

Prize: Miniature Journal made of brown vintage leather (value: $45). It
measures 5.5 x 7 cm (2.2 x 2.8 inches).
How to enter: 
- Leave a comment to this post telling me which is your favorite book from my Etsy shop.
- Leave another comment if you are a follower of my blog (and double your winning chances!)

The winner will be chosen on January 28 by the Random Number Generator.
If you don’t have a public contact address please send me your email or write it with your comment, or check back on 28th to see if you won.

Good luck!!

Lucky me :)

What could be better for a bookbinder of vintage journals than to find authentic vintage supplies? I was so thrilled to find this beautiful waxed thread for sale last weekend. Real collector’s item! My only regret was that the man only had 4 spools left. Three of them were produced by Droulers-Vernier, Lille - a French manufacturer specialized in leather industry, active from the 19th to the first half of the 20th century.
Lucky me!

Amazing Vintage Finds

Bucharest is a great place to go on trips looking for vintage stuff. That’s what I’m doing while here, and look at the treasures I found this Saturday at the flea market!
