About

Everything Old is New Again

Vintage books are getting harder and harder to find. The internet has changed the way information is shared and today books are downloaded to be read on phones and tablets. Books are still available for those who prefer reading the old fashioned way, but most books today are made without the quality and craftsmanship of those made fifty and more years ago. Then, books were made to last, but interests have changed and the majority of old books are discarded. What a shame! Very few of us would sit down with a book written a hundred years ago, but the covers, titles, and maybe a few pages could give us a glimpse into a past long forgotten. One of my passions is repurposing these unwanted books into useful journals. Rare and collectible books should always be kept intact, but there are thousands of worn, damaged and discarded books which can be partially preserved in a new form for years to come.

My name is Pat Labella, also known on-line as VintageIntent. I'm a paper artist... altered art crafter... thrift store and vintage junkie... health conscious baby boomer... animal lover... and Buffalo native now living in the Vegas desert. I collect kitchen items. I grow heirloom vegetables. I drool at antique autos. I read classic novels and watch the old movies.

My love of vintage started years ago. My knowledge grew along with my many collections. Years later, I still love the excitement of the hunt. Along with collecting vintage treasures, I enjoy creating art using vintage and recycled elements.

Vintage inspired art is my specialty. Old broken jewelry pieces that need a little love are recycled into pendants for today. Old vintage photos of unknown people become covers for unique journals. Discarded vintage books become one of a kind notebooks, notepads and journals.
