storybook mobile (for you!)

I have been in love with this idea for a long time.  After finding a bunch of vintage Little Golden books, I treated myself to a circle punch and got to work.  (what makes punching circles so satisfying??)

I love old wooden hangers and buy them whenever I can find them cheap.  I spray painted this one first and then sanded it a little.  I then sewed 5 strips of 6 circles each together, punched from a Frosty the Snowman book.  I hot glued the strips down under a button for an extra pop of color.



I kind of love it.  :)

The vintage illustrations are the best.



I'd like to send it to one of you!  I'll ship it anywhere, just leave a comment and I'll pick a name on Friday.  :)  (friends and family are welcome and encouraged to enter!)  (lurkers and first time visitors, too!)

As it's not specifically Christmas it can stay up all winter!  :)

Thanks for reading here.  I do appreciate the friendship and feedback more than you know.

xoxo
