From the Bookshelf
Mary Randolph Carter is probably best known for her series of "Junk" books - American Junk, Big City Junk, Garden Junk, Kitchen Junk, that showed us all how to decorate with found stuff and create wonderful surroundings for our lives. For the Love of the Old is a larger format with more emphasis on gorgeous photography, but still is chock full of all the "junk" we fell in love with in Ms. Carter's earlier volumes. Whether you're looking for decorating ideas or just want to sit down and spend sometime ooo-ing and ah-ing, this is one you'll really enjoy.
