The Family Sunday Book

I have a few different types of images to share with you today.  They are all three from the same antique book titled The Family Sunday Book ~ Day of Rest Annual.  I thought the cover was beautiful.  It is embossed, the Title is framed in gold gilt, and the leaves, bird and stars around the title are silver gilt.

The end papers of this book are just beautiful and dainty.  Small leaves with a muted blue/green color.

This next image from the book shows a gift inscription, lots of foxing, a neat old page that would make a nice background to your work.

This book is undated but I know the age to be prior to 1900.  Would love to hear from you and see what you make with some of the images I share here.  The top right of my blog page has a "contact me" button for you to email me.  

Keep your lives free from the love of money 
and be content with what you have, 
because God has said,
“Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” 
 So we say with confidence,
   “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid."
Hebrews 13:5-6

Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope you have a blessed day.  Please pray if you would for my friend's son who has a brain tumor and is facing surgery next week.  His name is Luke and he is 30 years old.  Thank you.

Thank you for sharing, loved the end paper.
Prayers for a successful outcome from Luke's operation. So young to be facing that.
