When It’s Cold Outside

5 Jan

We’ve had the bottom fall out from the thermometer again.  I do chores, but otherwise, I don’t want to be outside.  I’ve found a new way to entertain  myself on these cold days.  It partly involves cleaning out my closet.  It is filled with books.  It is filled with old vintage books.

Some are in not very good shape.  What are you supposed to do with a 1950s dimestore paperback that starts on page 37?

Turn it into art.  That’s my first option.

The next option would have been feeding it to a Minnie goat.  She likes paper, but I think I’ll stick with art.  It looks like I need to do a goat silhouette.

I had a lot of fun with these, so I decided to try something else.

I had fun with this heart too!

I do hope you’ll come back to join me for Friday’s Hunt tomorrow.  I have this week’s items listed at the top of my sidebar.

    Wow how creative is that! I particularly love the bunny and the cats and I would dearly love to know how are you did the heart in the book that is brilliant can you even let me know how you start. For instance do you start in the middle and work out for high to do it? You do come up with wonderful ideas I suppose it’s the teacher in you. Thanks for sharing

    I was going to say make art out of it–but you just ran with it. Love the bunny! I’ve been seeing those folded books around on FB. I think they’re cool.

    That’s pretty darn creative, kiddo! I was gonna say that’s what all my books looked like when I had a dobbie pup. It’s so cold I’ve let the hair on my legs grow and look like one of your goats.
