hand bound book with origami wallet signature

Here is a 4 by 5 inch hand bound book--the inside signature is an origami
wallet, sewn to the cardstock front cover and vellum end papers.  Today
I'm going to show you the first and last pages/pockets, along with all the
ephemera they hold . . .






I REALLY like that vintage light post!
AND the ticket stamp, it looks so official
Those are real railway tokens attached to the tags, from Altered Pages
Years Ago set  --those dreamy faces
Vintage Railway set  --the train and ticket ephemera, plus the "All Aboard" sentiment
Vintage Light and Form --the vintage light post, and the light quote.  It also has a
great dress form stamp, which I used on the inside pockets, but you can click the
link for a sneak peek at the stamp!

Is anyone else fighting with blogger today?  It's Saturday, and the DH and
I are heading out for a long weekend away, so I'm trying to schedule this.
Let's just say blogger and I don't always get along . . .

Happy Weekend, everyone!
