So, I was feeling a little creative last night.
I'm always bringing home vintage dictionaries from the
auction trash and decided to use one in some
kind of repurposing project.
This was a Webster's Collegiate Dictionary, 1947,
with nicely yellowed pages, and charming
hand drawn illustrations.
The spine was broken, so don't worry about me cutting
it up. It was begging to be useful again! :)
I've had this duck for decades, back when ducks were 'in' along with
hunter green and burgundy....so 1990's!
I covered him in the illustrations using Modge Podge and a little paint brush.
I applied two coats over the whole thing and let it dry overnight.
Who knew applying something vintage would bring him into the
21st century! haha. I intended to put him in my etsy shop,
but I'm having a hard time letting go.
I'll enjoy him a few days and see how I feel then.
He's large...would make a gorgeous centerpiece on a dinner table.
Maybe in a tray with fall colored leaves for Thanksgiving?
Or a wreath of holly around his neck for Christmas?
