Since launching Blue Lobster Book Co. back in January, I’m finding myself immersed in the world of books all day, every day. This makes me incredibly happy, because I’ve always been a book worm and would simply love to live in a library. Think one will rent me a room? I could use the vacation! On Pinterest this week I was blown away by some of the “things” people have created with old books or based on the notion of something appearing to be part of a book. And I thought Picasso had talent!
I’ve been so intrigued and excited by what I’ve found, I wanted to share with you. Here are my favorite pins of the week: lifted from the pages of a book:
How absolutely awesome is this decor timepiece?! If you’re short on cash or prefer to make handmade gifts, this would be an ideal Mother’s Day present for ANY mom. Or order one from Knick of Time. Thank you for sharing this one, Laurie’s Home Furnishings.
With a quick trip to the dollar store, you too can make these whimsical votive candle holders! Or grab some of those mason jars you have stuffed in the back of the closet. What a great project for a rainy spring day! A neat find from Marjorie Presley.
This is an altered antique book automata assemblage sculpture called “A Penchant For Redheads” by Bibliomaton. I have no idea what most of this means, but it’s cool! Maybe D Cm can fill us in!
It’s no secret that I love all things Edgar Allan Poe, which is why my right upper back adorns a Raven tribute. This has got to be the next best thing – Edgar Allan Poe altered book art! An incredible find from Algonquin Area Public Library District.
