These two have traveled quite a ways to visit me. The bird is made of vintage fabrics and wears a jaunty acorn hat. She was made by Ann Wood from Brooklyn, NY. You can see more of her creations here. The little mouse came all the way from Chile! He is needle felted and travels with a tiny leather bag and knit scarf for cold nights. He was made by Johana of Felting Dreams. You can see more of her adorable animals here.

I've said in previous posts that sometimes I DO judge a book by its cover and these Reader's Digest are the perfect example. At the moment, I really have no interest in actually reading these but the patterns on the cover are what attracts me to the books. My local library book sale room is an excellent source of vintage Reader's Digest books. They hold all the ones from the 1950's and 60's for me and charge me 25 cents a book. Here are a few examples of what I've bought.(Yard sales are a good source too!) These covers are popular for crafting but I can't bring myself to cut up a perfectly good book.
