Leather Bound Journal – Handmade Antique Deckle Edge Paper

This Journal Is Fantastic!!

This would make an excellent gift for men or women . . . I love the rustic feel and look of this leather bound journal with the homemade antique deckle edge to the paper. It would be a great journal or diary — a sketch book or whatever you want. It would look great on a book shelf or on your coffee table. It truly makes a statement all on its own!! This reminds me of an old diary one would find in the attic . . . filled with all the secret thoughts of young love . . .

This may inspire you to write your own novel or keep a record of all the tasty tidbits of your life you would want to share with your children or grandchildren . . . Maybe begin research of your own family tree . . . Jot down some notes you’ve learned from your parents or grandparents . . . This journal could house many treasures . . . even old family recipes . . . 

This would be a great travel journal . . . brand new it looks like its been places! It is made in the USA with authentic leather and tanned with special oils. It is slighly distressed giving it a look suggesting it has been passed down from a previous generation. I love the handmade paper which is acid free so it will last!! Whatever you decide to put in this journal will be safe for years to come.

The Exclusive Handmade Vintage Deckle Edge Paper Got My Attention Right Away

I usually like books and notebook pages to be neat and tidy . . . but when I saw this journal with the crinkled well-worn pages, I just had to have it!! This journal is only 90 pages — 180 when you count both sides . . . So, you may be able to fill it up quickly with whatever you’ve decided — wisdom, quotes, poetry . . . news of the day . . . your daily journal of your schedule . . . different foods, music, movies . . . etc. etc. etc. I’m sure you have plenty of things to fill this journal and maybe a dozen more . . . I know when I place my order, I’ll get at least 2 of these . . .

Are You Interested In Old Stuff?

Many Go To Estate Sales, Antique Malls And On-Line Auction Sites

There’s a great variety of old stuff … toys … pictures, magazines, gizmos … old diaries …

I was looking at YouTube Videos and found a few regarding old diaries … This young woman was interested in the romantic stuff one would record in a diary … 

I’m not especially interested in snooping on the private thoughts of others … It was written as a personal thing … not to be lost and picked up and sold to be shared publicly …

I Was Thinking It Would Be Kind Of A Good Idea To Keep A Diary Or Journal For The Upcoming New Year

A diary or a journal would make a lovely gift …

Just know that in 20, 30, 50 or even a hundred years, it may be “found” and read by complete strangers!!

But … with social media … Many share all aspects of their lives publicly … So … is a diary something one would actually keep?

I Keep A Tarot Journal As I’m Learning To Read Tarot Cards … I Do Have A Different One For Each Of My Tarot Decks

I wonder if they are something I would want to share with others … Initially I thought of them as a learning tool … But perhaps some of my questions and answers are a bit personal … I may not want them to get into the wrong hands …

I’m really leaning towards private thoughts are to be kept private … And, then again … It may be interesting to look back on in later years as we mature or our skills become more refined …

I think a personal journal or diary in learning to play a musical instrument or learning to dance professionally or something of that nature would be worthwhile …

Well … there are all degrees of what one would consider personal …

 

I Thought The Diary Above Would Be Fun For All Ages

I believe diaries should come with a warning about what to keep private and what to write down …

You could write poetry … limericks are fun … Maybe a secret recipe that was handed down in your family … Look for something interesting and fun that you wouldn’t mind others reading …

Diaries can be fun … so if you decide to buy one or several keep in mind what would happen if they fell into the wrong hands … It’s not a slam book … Try not to make it hurtful … Yet at times we do get hurt … even by a best friend … but we don’t have to get all ugly about it …

I’m interested in your thoughts on the subject of diaries and journals. Leave me a comment below.

Thanks for stopping by!
