A LITTLE WEEKEND PROJECT








A couple of months ago I was flipping through some european country inspired decorating books and came across some book shelves decorated with some quite weathered books...and I thought I think I can do that...so with a little bit of extra time this weekend I tried....

I went to my local good will store and bought 8 paperback books different thickness'es and sizes for the bargain price 8 for a dollar.....cant beat that...I brought them home and dunked them in the sink with my mornings leftover coffee... set them out to dry in the sun....tied them with twine and wa-lah!!! there I have vintage looking books for my shelves...I am hoping for more inspiration in the near future as my brain has finally rested from Mckinsey and Whitney's May 16 wedding . Fall is my favorite time of year and I can see it coming quickly...so hopefully with cooler days my creative juices will begin to flow more frequently....Hope all has a good week...

Love the books Amy. I'm just saying that those of us in blogland haven't seen any of the beautiful wedding/reception pics that Mom told me so much about. Sorry to miss out on Bunko while I was down there, hopefully I will catch ya'll next time. Give my Momma a hug at work please.
