Last year I got this idea, and Susie helped me by making the labels. I sold them in a local shop, and at my one and only craft show. I was out of them w/in a few hours of the craft show start. They were such a big seller, that I just finished over thirty to get me started this season.
I collected old books from yard sales all year to have enough. Most books can be bought for less than a quarter. I paint the inside and outside cover with black paint. When the front of the cover is still wet, I sprinkle on some cinnamon. Add the label and tie a grungy cheesecloth around to keep the book closed.
Saturday, was my Son Jared and his wife Pam's first wedding anniversary.
They stopped by Sunday to eat of bite of their cake top, and share a bottle of wine that they bought last year in Greece while honeymooning.. The wine was better than the cake! They spent the weekend in Philly, eating out, going to the museum, and of course,
The Phillies Game. Pam's wearing her new shirt!
