Book Paper Wall update…

Since creating my vintage book paper wall, I have been on the hunt for some botanical prints to add.  However, after several failed bidding attempts for the real thing on eBay, I decided to come up with an alternative.  I consistently am on Pinterest and thought maybe some of what I have saved in my Ephemera folder, might work.  I went ahead and printed them, and pasted them to my book paper wall over the weekend.   I am pleased how they look ~ if you get real close, you can see that they are a “reproduction”, but because I have other additions that I plan to add to the wall, I believe they will blend perfectly!

The lighting in this room isn’t the best, but here is distant photo so you can visualize the wall with the rose print accents…
I really like the addition of the botanical rose paper prints ~ it’s sort of an unexpected romantic touch to the space. 

To see where else I am linking to this week – please check my “Cottage Links” label…xoxo, tracie
