Happy Halloween

Hi Everyone
 Happy Friday
This post may get me in trouble
 I know that if my Grandmother were still alive
 she would be so mad at me for writing on these books
She {Loved} books 
she taught all her children and granchildren to 
and respect books
{not even a dogeared page was allowed}
you see
I  bought several
 a dozen vintage books at a garage sale
3 for a dollar
The sweet lady selling the books said what are you going to do with them

Every year we have a BOO
somewhere in our home for Halloween
The kids always look forward to seeing where it will be

This BOO was easy to find

This was a recycled Boo
 made with a glitter B and orange bottle tops
 this year I decided to write on the books
 the worn edges of these vintage books 

Happy Halloween
Added a tiny black and white
 checked ribbon
 A few flowers in the
 French Enamelware pitcher
Grandma is  probably rolling over in her grave
kids do not do this at home without permission......
