About books...

"If there's a book you really want to read but it hasn't been written yet,
then you must write it"
~Toni Morrison

"If there is a book that needs to be rescued, but it hasn't yet...
then, you must rescue it"

...."And if there is a book that would really look fab altered and it has not been yet...
then you must alter it!"

Our one of a kind altered vintage books can be found HERE.

The first and the third books have been sold, but 2 more have been listed,
"Fly Away Home"

and "Eternally Yours"

Cheers to vintage books and all their possibilities!

I love these books! I have not tried anything like this yet but did get some old books tucked away for one day when I get time! I am up to my neck in faux cupcakes at the moment! There are just not enough hours in the day for fun :)
