I Married Adventure


Courtney first introduced me to this lovely little book by Osa Johnson, and requested to see how others have it displayed. Here are a couple of photos of my beloved copy, currently resting beneath a pair of antique bronze finials.

What exactly are the contents of this book...is it any good or is it only the cover that is coveted?

Brilliant Asylum said...

Not going to lie, I bought it for the cover. I have only read bits and pieces, as the condition of my book is a bit fragile. I think anyone who loves travel and history will find it interesting. There are photographs of her "adventures" as well.

your tablescape is very cute.

Brilliant Asylum said...

Thanks for the compliments. Tabletops are re-arranged often at my house. I think it has changed a few times since these photos were taken a while back.

ALL THE BEST said...

I had the same question as Patricia...your photos look great!!

I scored this book at an estate sale a few months ago. Purchased it for the cover only. Just recently visited Charlotte Moss's store in NY...was so pleased to see it displayed on the bedroom desk.
