Welcome to Old Soul Studios, We love vintage and aged items that portray a silent story about them. We create new items from salvaged items and create new stories, kind of like the makings of "An Old Soul". We love the art of making something out of nothing, making something old into something new!

Repurposed Journals

I purchased these three old journals at a local flea market. They contain pages filled with wonderful classroom notes about plants and nature, science and chemistry. The front of the journals had been unattractively marked on, probably the reason I was able to one find them and two at such a good purchase price... these guys have become rare and pretty pricey. I covered the front with authentic old used french post cards of historical landmarks and buildings. Wouldn't these make great travel journals or at least the notes of dreaming about travel... I am glad I found away to give them a second life. They will be up for sale at our first show of the year... The Tattered House Market April 18th in Roseville California. Now what to do with those old ...... 


  1. What a totally "awesome" find! I love the old stuff like that. Wish I could take a drive up North to see everyone that week-end. I think Christie and Rita are doing the market with you guys.
    Take care, Sue

  2. What a wonderful find! And I love how you fixed them up, just lovely!

    Have a wonderful Easter weekend!

  3. That's so interesting having someone's old thoughts and notes, thanks for posting!
