Treasure Trove Tuesday





Treasure Trove Tuesdays are Treasures you have found during the week while surfing the web. They can be any kind of treasure as long as it's a treasure to you.




This week I am mixing it up a bit and sharing with you somethings I have done. I moved a while ago, During my Hiatus. While moving my washing machine hose leaked and the bottom of one of my book boxes got wet. So instead of tossing the books, I let them dry and created these. (Note: there was no way to donate these. They were pretty bad)


(for those of you who think it is evil for creating things with ruined books I suggest you close your eyes.)








































So these are now my prized treasures.  What are your treasures for the week?

I always enjoy Treasure Trove Tuesday, this week especially since it was things you created.

I am sorry some of your books were ruined but what a great way to recycle.

Way to be green and recycle too!

Love those! You could sell those! Or better yet put on a How To post so we can all be so creative!

Summer Ross said...

I agree- you could sell them- I wouldn't even know how to do any of this kind of thing! great treasures- they are beautiful!

I love things created from books. This is too cool!

Kristin Rae said...

VERY COOL!! I especially love the wreath! I didn't realize people thought it was evil to make things with books (Esp if they're beyond being readable...)--it's a great way to reuse! I'm on the lookout for old Italian books that I can make some things with.

Wow...O_O
Those are FABULOUS! It's never a waste to make something out of books that there is no way of salvaging. It's recycling at its finest form. ^_^

LinWash said...

Those are brilliant. Like some of the other posters, I would never have thought they were made from books.
