Crusade # 48

This month we have to document any event, trip or outing in our journals.

We already wrote about Pilot Point in our blog, but probably will mention it many times, as it has special charm which keeps us coming back and discover something new every time.
Jay’s café/museum is located in the historical center of the city. Every time I enter it my heart stops – the café is full floor to ceiling with objects relevant to historical life in Pilot Point. You may find anything from circus posters to spice boxes common to the kitchen of 100 years ago, wonderful pieces of glass, books, cloths, and photo albums from decades past all collected by Jay, the owner, this makes every visit a voyage of historical exploration. The best part is that you can touch everything, take pictures and even purchase some of these treasures. The spread in my journal is a collage made from papers acquired in Jay’s café.

  2. I did see the cool Crusade #48 challenge and really don't have something significant to journal about like a trip, etc. I might do my art journey :)

    This is fantastic, what you've done, here and I saw it on Misty's group, too! It's so well composed and meaningful! Best to you - Marilyn

  3. The shop sounds as much fun, and as full of interesting specimens, as your blog.

  9. Love the bold letters on the map and your great use of such warm luscious colors. I find the lacey looking bits on the far left very intriguing, can't quite make it out, but it looks beautiful.
    All my best-

  10. Oooooh I love this spread – Jay’s café/museum sounds like just my kind of place!

    Love the biiiig strong title over the map, and all the ephemera on the right (I’m not usually a fan of vintage “stuff” just for the sake of vintage “stuff” – but this is particularly interesting “stuff” plus it has direct relevance to what you are journalling about, and with that lovely warm honey coloured background it totally rocks!)

    (PS I’m glad that the GPP Crusades have brought me to your blog, I’m off to explore further…)
