Antique Letterpress Initials

I know this isn't a DIY, but I had to share! I went to an antique store recently and it's one that I've never been to before. It had all kinds of treasures. I also took it as a time to practice my bargaining skills, and guess what? It worked. Check out the treasures I found.

I got "XOXO" for Valentine's Day...

... and I got a "B" and a "C" for my husband's and my initials.

I think they are kind of cool. What do you think? Would you use antique letterpress initials to decorate?

  3. thats awesome! I love using the type drawers & the type itself as decor. I've even stepped it up to using some of my old print blocks as decor. it turns the process into art itself! :)

  4. Love them! I wish our thrift stores here were better. Though I did find a couple the other day while driving around that I need to check out. Maybe they'll have some fun goodies like this.
