i could live in a book




i love books!! i love to read books, pick them out at the library, browse for them at the bookstore and collect them on my book shelf. and, now i am buying for them at goodwill and the thrift store so i can make these adorable vintage book bird houses!!! it took me three tries to get this one that i like but once i figured out the process it was quite simple. i'll try to post a tutorial soon on how i made this! i have a grouping of three hanging in my living room and they are tres cute!

I love this! I have seen books done like this on etsy but had no idea how it was done. A tutorial would be really cool. Love the book you chose...the cover is awesome! :)

Very cute. It reminds me of my Mason bee houses, but bigger.

Oh Julie, I think we would have fun shopping the used book sales together! It's a great idea.
