~ Fabulous Blue Antique Ledger Paper




F
or a long time I have looked for some really old, but hopefully in good condition, antique ledger papers. In Blue. A kind friend had some her shop a couple of years ago, and I used the couple of sheets that I received from her. But the beauty of those gray blue pages stayed with me. And it remained elusive for a long time.

Recently I was fortunate to find a gorgeous ledger full of these stunning handwritten pages, and in perfect condition. But as usual, there is much more that I can use all by myself. So I have it listed in the newer shop.

The color is gorgeous. So subtle. And that handwriting! I thought I heard somewhere that they don't teach cursive writing in schools anymore??!! I can't image.

The tree is up. And the lights are almost on it. One string short again because one of the longest strands was half burned out. You know "they" do this on purpose. I don't mind being slow to get it done this year. I'm clearing out as I go along. Another trip to the GoodWill is in the immediate future. Anything out the door (of my own choosing) is a very good thing.

Have a Bright & Cozy Day!
See Y'All Sooon~

  1. Donna- What wonderful old paper. My Uncle had such beautiful penmanship that they hired him to fill out documents at an insurance company. There used to be a whole stack of them in our attic..I would love to have them now! Hugs-Diana

  2. That is gorgeous ledger paper! We're getting our tree this weekend but I'm not sure when we'll actually decorate it. I too am going through my boxes and boxes (how did I get so much Christmas stuff) and have already made one trip to Goodwill. We've decided not to do all the lighted deer etc any more so we donated those. Just lights on the house this year.
