English 1893

The holidays are over, the ground is covered in snow,.......finally, time to create!

I've been inspired to recycle Christmas cards received and have decided to make bookmarks. I'm also recycling an Indiana school English book from 1893 picked up at an auction for mere cents. It was in sad shape when found at the bottom of a box. The book was signed by student, Edna..........1895.
The patina of the pages is great so now they will be preserved in the form of a bookmark.
