Thrifted Library Pockets

Last week, I promised I’d share a little more about my library pocket finds.

As usual I apologize for the sheer amount of photos, but I usually try to make up for that by keeping the chit chat short. So here goes…

I was able to pick up about 22 of these in this haul. At 25 cents apiece, $5.50 doesn’t seem too pricey, especially when you count in spending the day with our best friend thrift shopping. Priceless!

Some of the cuteness found inside the books. The page is of course from one of the books, again 25 cents, cha-ching right there!

You never know what you’ll find tucked into the pages of old books. I still have a four leaf clover I found in a very old book.

A selection of some keepers.

I bought all the books in another town, so I donated most of them to our local Senior Thrift Store that is sadly lacking in children’s books, so that was super fun!

Now to the art journaling portion of this post:

“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams” ~Eleanor Roosevelt

I made a sort of half promise to myself that I would finish up all my half done art journals in 2022, but I make that promise every year!

Does that equal a full goal or a 1/4 of a promise? Math isn’t my strong suit!

Anyway, I promised this would be about thrifted library pockets.

This is an image of a vintage radish. Clearly the sand has shifted to the bottom, much like this vintage Radish!

I had fun with this page spread. Yes, I have “Pants fitting problems!”, it’s called Christmas goodie overload!

I love that quote from one of my Happy Planner sticker books, I just couldn’t bring myself to actually put it in a planner. Guess I’m just not that motivated!

The tag selection: Library card, coffee stained tag with a floral sticker, large tag made from “under paper” (loosely described: paper used to protect your desk while painting something else), and a card made from art randomness with some info from masks I ordered online. (See why I need to downsize!)

I adhered a journaling piece that I had removed from a journal that was no longer working for me. It was a special memory of my dad. I love having a new home for it!

The photo on the front of the library pocket was taken on the trip where I said goodbye. A particularly sweet memory.

Well, that’s about it for now. I’ve been spending most of my time setting up my planner and coming up with some pretty loose goals for 2022 (guess I won’t be punching any days in the face this year!)

Until next time

Thank you so much for popping in,

Have a great week!

~Patty

  1. Oh Patty’s, I think you did well with the library cards. The price was good, too.

    What is the first thing you do when starting a new journal?

  2. Happy art journaling year Patty! I noticed I have way too many journals going right now, and will use a bit of January to “downsize” or rather: finish them of in some way or other, I just don’t seam to be able to get rid of anything these days.

    Good thrift finds!
