Spent the weekend at sales

I did some yard sales, an estate sale and a flea market this weekend. The items that I am most excited about are these plates! I found 6 at a rummage sale. All but one were in perfect condition. I wish the plates were marked, but there is nothing on the back. These plates are sooo shabby chic!! I am going to keep two, I think, and hang them in my bedroom. I just love them!!

One plate had been broken and someone did a really poor job of gluing it back together again. But I was very happy to take all six because the price was right!! The broken one is at Merchant Square. I figure that someone who does china mosaics or soldered charms would love that plate -- for just 50 cents! The rest will be found in my booth over the next few days.
Ah! Here is the latest project. And it is nearly finished. I got the inside pages done. Just need to do the cover -- and it is already started. Then I will have to figure out how to close it so the pages will stay in. Some type of a clasp or ribbon closure.

I am also not sure if I want to secure the pages to the spine or let them remain by themselves. Will be working on that over the next few days. These projects take a lot of time. Been working on this over the last three weeks.
