From French flee markets to Mini Collage Books

My dear friend Eltoile-filante, half Switzerland, half Swedish, now living en Bretagne in France has taken the opportunity to browse on some French flee markets for me and sent me such lovely finds of old school books with the most delightful drawings in it and old photos and postcards, vine labels and other treasures.

Ok, I am making my little collage books anyway, as you know, but with fresh material it is even more fun!

This is the new one. I love those colored flower pictures from the French Science Book.

I used some parts of French love poetry in this artwork.

"I say the words, always the same,
but I love you! I love you!
I love you, do you understand?"

And this morning started with a sold book on my Etsy store! Great happiness. I hope „Sun and moon“ will bring joy to the lady who will receive this.

Talking about Etsy, there will be something totally new: The Collage Art Book on demand! A mini book made by made just for you. Your wish is my command.

Thanks for looking!


  1. what a great friend! i love your collages - looking at them is like wandering through a beautiful, unfamiliar city.

  2. Fabulous! What great new materials from your friend, and I love the book you feature today. Laurie has such a great description when she calls it "wandering through a beautiful, unfamiliar city"...SO true!

  3. So lovely and full of romance and sensuous textures!

  4. Great treasures! Love those South African stamps--I will send you some of the bird stamps, as I have a good friend in South Africa and thus a lot of stamps. Good idea on the custom book line. I have thought about doing custom travel journals....


So glad to hear from you!
