I was thrilled when I found this book laying on a table at an estate sale. Everything was half price on this day, so for one dollar I brought home this fabulously illustrated book.
In 1989, The Nature Notes of An Edwardian Lady by Edith B. Holden was published from Holden's notebook written and drawn during 1905.

The pages inside this book feature seasonal drawings, poems, and her observations, starting with the month of January to December. To enjoy more of these fabulous illustrations from The Nature Notes of An Edwardian Lady by Edith B. Holden, click here.
Since today is the first day of the month here are two of October's illustrations by Holden.
I have this book sitting on the table in my living room, and I find myself drawn to it each time I sit down because of the charming illustrations. While the book is not vintage, this vintage inspired book was a dollar well spent.
