I got to go into one of my favorite shops; “Linda’s Recycled.” She is an old classmate of mine who is even crankier than me. ( Hard to believe but true.) I needed a book. I hoard books both in the house and on my Kindle Fire. Now what could I possibly need another book for?
I joined another Altered Book Round Robin. Altered books are old books with good bindings…that are altered artistically with fabric, paints, stamps, stickers you name it and it can go into an altered book. Of course I could not buy just one book, I could not make up my mind so I purchased: Apples of Gold a pretty little book with great sayings “Patience---in time the grass becomes milk.” Working and Playing an old reader with beautiful illustrations from the 1950’s “See the Gingerbread Man put him in the pan” said Mary Ann. AND last but not least The World’s Best Dirty Jokes “ The Judge came home and found his wife in bed with his best friend. “Hey what do you think you are doing?” To which the wife replied to the man in bed with her “See I told you he was stupid.” It is from the 1970’s so it isn’t real racy…but probably not appropriate for an altered book exchange. ( Two of the gals would be fine with it, but I don’t know the other gals…there are eight of us in the Round Robin.)
I have projects going all over the house..scrapbooking, Christmas Cards, a photo project and some Christmas decorations are still up along with the Shiny Brite tree, two unfinished crochet projects and now I add to that an Altered Book Project and I have to make more Sympathy cards as they are leaving the house faster than I can make them…cold weather will do that… people drop like flies.
The Direct TV Repair person is supposed to be here this morning if he doesn’t freeze to death.
Wherever you are stay safe and warm.
