Let's just be honest with ourselves... I love books. I tend to gravitate towards old books, mainly because I really like the reading other people's notes in the margins and thinking what the previous owners were like. My favorite books are those of the craft-related nature. So if I can find an old craft book, I get REALLY pumped.

and a book called Bright Ideas for your Home by Dalsgaard and Erichsenth. Both books were published in the 70's, and the Bright Ideas book was equipped with photos and intructions to make everything from couches to vest-like back packs. Here are a few projects from the book:
These are definitely FABULOUS FINDS. I wish you luck the next time you go a-thrifting! Now, I'm off to purchase some foam to make a "slumper" (and by that- I mean I'm going to bed.)
