Something Old is New Again

outside


Over a year ago, I made a huge score at the libraries clearance sale, bringing home 4 bags of vintage books for $8. I put all my keepers on my bookshelf and stashed the others away for projects. It's been on my mind lately to get it done, and yesterday saw Kerry's post about her altered vintage books. I figured what better time then right now! (to look like the copy cat I am LOL!)

Mine's different though. I dissected a couple of 3 ring binders so I could keep the spines intact. The one titled "Birds in Our Lives" is for a special scrapbook about our friends and families. The "America's Wonderlands" will be a travel journal for any trips we make this year. I'm not very good at travel journaling, I get too wrapped up in the moment, so I think this will be a nice collection of many single paged but thorough road trips.

Great idea!! A great way to use old, falling apart binders. The titles of the books are perfect (and pretty too)
