recycling.

What a day and it's only half way through.

Had a great meeting with my book designer…. it's soooooo exciting.

Then we bought a car (well ordered it).

Now you can have one built  for you… bright red, cream leather seats, wood paneling … a sun roof… it has all the bells and whistles…you just press a button to dial…. "Ring Keith" and it rings your phone….. wooow.

I bought more bright knitting needles… some old books and vintage playing cards….

Recently, the price ticket on the garment I purchased was an old playing card with the price stuck on the front…

I thought it was wonderful…

So,

I bought some old cards today for 25 cents, printed my name etc on card, stuck it to the back of the card and then laminated them and added ribbon…

I will give them to the people who are on the tour bus in Ireland with me.

Cost, about 50 cents for 50 cards.!!! but a lot of work.

I'm Tasmanian, and these vintage cards are perfect.

  2. Pam – you inspired me! At the Rubbish Removers recycling place I found Aussie cards – am about to head O/S, so will “steal” your idea and make calling cards/thank you cards – Aussie image already printed on one side – thank you for the idea!!!

  3. Kate, they look super…. I like the idea of the pieced pieces on the back. I have some vintage cards coming from the USA so I might try it on those….
    Cheers Pam…. have a great trip too.
