Vestige - Leather Journal with Vintage Ornaments

This is one of my favorite journals so far - I have a passion for really old metallic stuff and I was lucky enough to find these two pieces of ornaments at a local fare. I haven't changed their look at all - these is how I bought them and they seem to come from a really old piece of furniture or such. They have a wonderful patina and I used them as a part of my design, creating the appearance of two doors.

The leather I used for this journal's cover is a beautiful sturdy matte leather. I think it goes great with the metallic gate.
I engraved a wood pattern on it and painted it with leather pigments. I've just uploaded it in my shop and already got two appreciation hearts :)


  1. Wow, I miss so much going to the fair with you, fighting for vintage charms :) The book is really gorgeous!

  2. This book is so lovely, it reminds me of Narnia... If I opened its doors... I would go on an adventure! Don't you just love finding vintage pieces to add to such an olde worldly tradition... Who will get this journal??
