A little known fact about me, is that I love old things. Really old things, not just second hand things like what most of my house is. I’m talking at least a 100 years or more. Old books also happen to be something I enjoy. Oh, who I am kidding? I just love books!
Having (hopefully) made clear my love of old things. I have something rather exciting to share with you! Megan, From Shaping up to be a Mom, is starting up a shop. Based on… you guessed it!
I was sent an example of their work and it is awesome! With Pages from the Past, you can request a certain passage and they will do their best to accommodate you. I chose Proverbs 31 (of course) and a white frame. Doesn’t it look awesome against my brown walls?
The hubby of course, was very interested as well. He pulled out his lighted magnifying glass and started looking at the wording, the old style font, and comparing it against our KJV version bible. Then he noticed something unique. The letter s was replaced with the letter f. So the word jewels, looked like jewelf. Just reading you wouldn’t see it, but it you look closer you can. So totally cool!
Here is what Megan has to say about her new shop:
Own a piece of history with a framed page from a 200-year old Bible! We recently came into possession of a rare, almost-complete Bible printed in 1814, and we thought it would be a wonderful idea to create works of art out of these antique pages. These framed pages will look fantastic on the walls of your home, and they are a great conversation piece. We do our best to accommodate all customer requests for certain pages or passages.
And a few quick examples:
I was in Hobby Lobby last night and out of curiosity looked at the pricing of similar art and was shocked! Needless to say, Pages from the Past has very competitive pricing.
