The class "Ticket to Venice" is underway. I've been chomping at the bit, waiting for the first video lessons to be posted, so I can start my travel journal for my pretend trip to Venice. But now I am frozen in place, trying to decide what to use for the cover of my journal. I even made a trip to the library today, because they usually have several books on the discard table for 50 cents to a dollar.
The ones I am considering are these. The more beat up they are, the better I like them.
Added Note: I realized I made it sound like I got all these books from the library discards - not true. Only about three came from the library (with plain covers). The cool stuff all came from my friend Gaye's yard sales. She finds fantastic stuff at other yard sales, then eventually has too much and passes it along. Lucky me!
