Made From Books Long Forgotten

The book was maybe somebody's favorite that had been read over and over again, passed along from a friend, or endured a family move across the country. The book had been handled many times and eventually wore out. What is one to do with this old worn out tattered book? Often times it's left in a box in the attic to be forgotten. Sometimes it is donated or left out to sell in a yard sale. Just because it's old and tattered, missing a page or two, or even just falling to pieces does not mean that this cherished piece of literature is JUNK.

A couple of weeks ago I had the fortunate opportunity of meeting Michelle, a girl with a passion for giving new life to these treasures. She created Attic Journals. Handcrafted in Portland, Oregon and sold across the country Attic Journals are made from hardbound vintage books, children's books, and cookbooks.

Take a moment to check out Attic Journals and other upcycled products Michelle has to offer.
