Oh What FUN a Quarter Can Buy

Today there was sunshine!
I recharged my camera batteries and went a wee bit snap-happy.
I love to thrift shop for Little Golden Books.
I'm not all that concerned with condition, because if it is not in good condition I will alter it until it 'fits' what I'm after.
This one is my third of fourth copy of "The Little Red Hen".
It has all the colors I want in my kitchen, and ohhhh how I do want freshly baked bread in there, too.
Diamond Glaze was used to give the cover some texture and shine. My plan was to also drill holes at the top and hang it by a red ribbon. Until I realized that I have no nobs in the kitchen from which to hang it.
So, it leans. And looks pretty good.
Such a GREAT book, too!
And all for a quarter.
