Happy Books!

This grouping of books makes me so ridiculously happy that I just don't know what to do with myself....the little fish book especially makes me grin! He just doesn't know how cute he is.

Tell me what you think. These guy's will be for sale at First Friday coming this Friday........

I don't know about the little fishy guy though....he may have to live with me!

Four Books and a Horse

Here's some new stuff. My favorite is the book with the painted trees. I did that painting and didn't like it so I cut it up to make a book cover and I love it immensely now. I also like the new stitch I've learned....the two books on the's called Celtic Weave from the book by Keith Smith...and I love it, love it.

So, leave me some comments, tell me what ya think....but above all....Have a great day!

Here are a few wonderful surprises...In our forays into Priceville, Al (to support my Dad in his horse class trials) Jacob and I wandered into what a first appeared to be a very frightening used bookstore....well appearances were indeed deceiving, because this little bookstore proved to be a treasure trove of sorts. The top pictures are of the Charles De Lint book that I found...first edition, signed and numbered! (got to get that sticker residue off though!) I also found The Halloween Tree by Ray Bradbury (a rare title) and several other treasures. Jacob found several prizes of his all in all, a very rewarding endeavor.

Also in this post are pictures of my newly constructed book sewing frame (with a project on it).
This was made by dear Jacob (assisted haphazardly by yours truly) So, very soon there'll be all sorts of new book projects to show.


First Friday!

Here are some pictures from First Friday! Jacob and his instruments were a real hit! He was even on the front page of the newspaper! Check it out!
