The good news is my Etsy site has been going crazy recently! I've had more orders this month than ever before. Like books for...
I even got my first corporate gig. More about that at a later date.
But my supply of RDCBs is starting to dwindle, so this week I went into supply acquisition mode. I started at my local library where I picked up these two bags of solid covers. Green anyone? How about purple?
And while I was there I picked up this oversized atlas...
...which has these great maps that I think will be reincarnated into flowers before too long.
And I couldn't pass up this...
...because......well just because.
Then today was the neighborhood garage sale and I ran across...
two boxes of RDCBs with patterned covers, like this golden beauty.
I did confirm, however, that I am the world's worst negotiator. When I saw an elementary dictionary, I asked, "Will you take a dollar for this?"
To which the lady answered, "Well, it's priced at 25 cents, but if you want to give us a dollar, then..."
And then to make me feel a little worse.
"We're all book lovers in this booth so we don't want to keep anyone from getting a good book because they can't afford it."
I think this was the point where I was supposed to confess that I was going to take the scissors to her 25 cent book and reimagine it...
...but I didn't.
But I'm sure she would have understood if I had. I mean look at that beautiful print.
Won't that make some gorgeous flowers?
And in other news, I also scored this great mid-century fondue pot!
Then I made one last stop at the library a little farther from my house. This has been my go-to library for RDCBs since I discovered they had a secret bookcase full of them behind a locked door. They usually have a couple of shelves full of them out front, too.
But today nothing. Nada. Nil.
Someone is taking all the RDCBs in Houston. This is war.
