Teacher Gifts

Tis the season for gifting teachers.  If you, like me are tired of candles and dip mixes and yet another apple themed trinket I suggest digging through your hoard  stash for something a bit different.
Perhaps I am not the only one who fails to resist the siren song of old books?!
It's a rescue mission I tell you.  They cry and I simply must take them.  Why will no one else do it?  The rafters are bending under the weight...
Anyhoo, I took some old school primers and dressed them up with a bit of crochet doily parts.  Added some vintage bling bits from my tins of junque bits.
Ta da, easy peasy.
I sold two of them so need to do up a few more for teacher gifts (oh dear, tomorrow is the LAST day of school and I have been felled by what I can only say feels like the BUBONIC PLAGUE).  Pleased with the results and the possibilities.
Yours in gifting,

I hear your pain this flu/cold thing has wiped me out almost 2 weeks.. it's a killer. I love your new creations, they should sell out! Very unique. I too cannot pass up an old book! Have a Very Merry Christmas ox

Carrie, I would have loved to have gotten something like this as a gift. Instead, there were lots of soaps, mugs, and glassware! LOL Oh well, the thought was there! Hope you have a Merry Christmas w/your family~ Sue
