vintage print blocks

At last! I have finally collected all of the blocks I need to spell ....


The colour, patina and craftsmanship of these wooden blocks is amazing - it's a bit addictive once you start searching for them! I hope you've found some great stuff in your travels this week too. Have a lovely Sunday!

How great. I spied some of these on a UK website the other day as I've recently come to purchase a couple of old printer drawers. I'm excited about the prospect of getting some of my own letters now. Love yours.
