Have you seen one of these around?

These “little free libraries” are popping up all over the country, and I have to say, I just love them.

Not only do I love the creativity, and ingenuity of design with which most of them are made, but I love what they stand for. Taking books, sharing them with each other. Especially in communities that might not have a library available to them readily, or where budget cuts might make it hard for locals to get access to one. I also just like the idea that people want to share what they have read and enjoyed with the world. Take a book, pass it on. Take a book, leave a book. Take a book, share a book. These slogans that occasionally accompany these libraries say so much with so little.

 

I will be on the lookout for these when I travel, hopefully I will find a few to take a snapshot of and share here on my blog!

Decorated Vases (Sharpie Paint Markers)

Check out these wine glasses, made using Sharpie Paint Markers/Pens, and baking them in an oven to make them waterproof… Gorgeous, unique and clever. A fantastic DIY project for an artistic afternoon.
