Look at this cute book handbag!

I just bought the most darling handbag from Michelle at spoonfulofchocolate.etsy.com. She takes books and turns them into custom-made handbags. I asked her to find a copy of Gone With the Wind, my favorite book (and movie), and she took this 60th Anniversary edition of the book and created this beautiful handbag.

I can't wait to take it to the next book signing I attend, and I think it would make a great gift for book lovers. She makes new covers for the books and donates them to a charity, or you can have her make a matching cover for the and get the book too. (That's what I did.)

Thanks to Stephanie at thewrittenword.wordpress.com for tweeting about Michelle. Check out Michelle's website and see all of the stuff she has for sale- lots of great classic children's books, and cookbooks too.


  1. So glad you got one! They are really beautiful!!

  2. Thanks for turning me onto to Michelle. She was so great to work with. I can't wait to take it to the next book signing.
    So glad to hear everything went well with you on Friday- I was thinking good thoughts for you!
