Well, this is not really junkmarket style display but I still wanted to share with you this jar and very old book from 1787 that I love to use as a pedestal for my jars and other goodies. I always love the color and smell of old books and was wondering if anybody else like to use their books in a decorative way.

As for the jar, I could not help it, just had to ger ready for holidays and it started with my box full of jewels, ribbons, glitter and some mini ornaments.

You create such great whimsical displays Vecernice. I always love looking at your posts.

I collect all colors and thicknesses at GS, most of the time they give them away! I have a library of books to choose from -- looks nice as a library and they're all right there when I need a certain color or thichness!

Love your ideas,
