New way to repurpose old books!!!!

Recently I began using my old pages from books
to create small doll houses
my favorite is Alice in wonderland

All papered inside out

each little cut out is coated 

                                                             A night light added for effect


                                                              A tea party inside

Great way to use old pages from a book!!!!

I was asked recently to create another Alice book

Very early 1900's and a delight to work with.
you can see many of my Books at Etsy,
Or contact me, perhaps I can find just the right
book for you!

The Garden Uprooted
 Features Artwork by Susan Hoerth!

Poetry Review, Front Porch, and BOXCAR. She lives in Deep South Texas with her love, Bruno, and their many cats. The Garden Uprooted is her first full length poetry collection. Find her on blogspot: http://www.katiehoerth.blogspot.com 

And for your reading pleasure, here’s a sample poem:
Chocolate Sundae
I didn’t mind the way our fingers
Interlocked to create a sundae, vanilla
with a little hot mocha drizzled on top.
Or the way your mom ran her dark
fingers through my blonde hair, dreaming
of fluffy white haired babies. I didn’t mind biting
into the corn husks that held tight
the homemade tamales, and you didn’t laugh,
except maybe silently to yourself.
But when you took me to Denny’s
one sparkly night, we sat cozy together
like teenagers do. I ordered like a fool –
“a veggie burger please with those curly fries
And a sundae – with tasty hot chocolate sauce”.
You just stared at your lap and said nothing
for you, just maybe a coke.
You watched me eat my fill, swirling
the ice cream together as it melted
into a single colored slop, leaving much
on my plate. You took the bill
into your trembling hands, emptied
your wallet onto the table, and we left
Arm in arm, you – hungry yet satisfied,
me – full and yearning for something more.
