|You can never have too much paper ephemera for collage|
|That being said, you know where I stand. So, of course I had to go to the Library Big Book sale not once, but twice, again this year.|
I had my coffee this morning surrounded by birthday presents and old books. Not a bad start to the day.
|People here in SF are big for standing in lines.I see people in lines all the time but I'm not one of those people. That is, until the book sale rolls around.|
|And, if you've got to stand in line, Fort Mason Center is a good place to do it.|

I bought these amazing dictionaries for $1 each. Good thing they weren't selling books by the pound.
Not all mine...don't get too excited.....(but actually I went twice so I did get too carts filled with books).
|Here we are -- me and Monica Lee -- my pal the Artful ReCrafter. And if you click on her blog, you'll see her photos and version of our trips to the sale.|
The Artful ReCrafter
|I am now back at home and overcome with all the ephemera I have for collage. I have enough to last the rest of my life....I am so excited to get started making things that I don't know where to start....|
|I always look for bird books.....|
|And I seriously scored on old yearbooks this year.....I love to read all the comments...|
|How could I possibly resist?|
|I got these because I loved the colors/covers. I am going to tear off the covers and backs and make altered books from these....|
|And now, it's all over till the next sale...but I am pretty sure I have enough ephemera and ideas to keep me busy until then.|
I'll show you what I make. And -- what would YOU make with some of these books?
Maybe you'll think of some things that I wouldn't think of....
