Was such a nice weekend JH and I went junking.  Started out at an EA Saturday--nothing to bring home--too much $$$ but beautiful antiques.  Hit a couple of ES Sunday.  Picked up these items.  I was amazed at the 1966 "craft making" books out of household items.  1960's style junk repurposing.  Had a great time too bad had to go home to get ready for dinner.

KimberlyMelamed writes: Hilarious books! Bet they are even funnier on the inside. You should post one of the projects photos and we could all take a swing at it, junk style of course, and post it. How fun would that be?!

LuAnn writes: I'll let you know what I come up with. Although most of the plastic bottles shapres aren't made any more but will see what I can come up with--how about a curler holder (made from a plastic bottle)? It was such a hoot to look at these.

Talk soon.

Are you going to try some of the 60's art projects? You may have to update them a little to make use of more junk items but I think that would be a fun challenge! Let us see what you do Ok? love ya, geo Posted: 3:36 pm on October 5th
