A little searching on the web is turning up all kinds of great things made of old books. Why so much searching? I have a million ideas for things I want to make from my very large pile of very damaged books - not all of them lend themselves to the small size of the pendants - but I don't want to duplicate what anyone else is doing. And it's FUN!

So here's my latest find. Her name is Caitlin and she makes purses out of old hardcover books. I covet this Nancy Drew bag.

My grandmother used to buy me a new Nancy Drew book every time she came to visit and I still have a soft spot for those little hardbacks. I have no idea where mine are though - probably sold at a rummage sale where I hope they made someone's day. I still remember the absolute delight of finding an entire box of Tintin books at a garage sale.

For those who need a somewhat roomier bag, check out this Shakespeare. Nice, eh? Very classy.

oooh, love the Shakespeare. You need a purse big enough to hold a book, of course.

Oh, I remember those Tintin books!

Who ended up with the copy of Little Women that we had when we were kids? Because I think that one would make a fabulous purse.
