New framed herbariums……

 

 

A couple of months ago I stumbled across a set of eight pages from a herbarium book from the early 1900’s on eBay. Originally I was only looking for a set of four prints to frame for the upstairs bathroom but when I came across this set I figured I could find a spot for the rest of the pages. I was so delighted when I actually won the auction because I thought they would surely go for a lot of money. The set of eight including shipping was $30…..however framing the pages cost a whole lot more so I had to do a few at a time.

Here are two of the pages I framed hung in the living room…..

Each one has a hand written description of the plant and the date……

These are beautiful and they are framed just perfect. Well worth the money spent on the right frame, in my opinion.

Those are just gorgeous! They look so pretty in your white room. They are soft enough to flow nicely in there. What a great find!

Very pretty, Des. I think finding the right things for the wall is the hardest thing. Don't you? I want the things I hang to mean something to me and hopefully not be mass produced. I love your idea. What did you look for when you were on Ebay?
