There is something so appealing in the artifact quality of a scrapbook.  I like the "design-y" examples you found - June Davidson was an original DIYer!  What's old is new again...

Thanks for reading, Abby! I think this scrapbook is also very telling about the bleak times of the Great Depression. Many of the images June cut out featured expensive furnishings in vast rooms. Since the Davidson family was of modest means, I think this scrapbook served as sort of a "dream house" escape for June, too.
