hi! back again today with this travel journal called "the green gate" . it is a junk, smash type storybook journal with over 60 pages which include: 30 vintage cotton typing paper pages, 9 vintage lined papers and 25 card-stock pages, with lots of pockets, writing space and original vintage child's reader cutouts, pockets and envelopes. Each page of this journal is hand inked, and o-wire bound between the covers from a 1948 Alice and Jerry basic reader called "Through the Green Gate". i have it listed in my etsy shop here. there are many pictures so grab your coffee or tea and, by the time your are done, um, you may want something a bit stronger. this part of posting takes me forever! here we go:
