OK, you're probably wondering about now why this post is titled "bookish buys" when it's all about my wedding. Well! The husband had so much fun creating the table numbers that he decided to continue doing it, and set up an Etsy store for custom orders. He has also started creating some adorable characters. So this post is kind of a shameless plug, but I figured I spend plenty of time promoting other people's Etsy stores, I should be able to promote The Husband's. I'm biased, but I love what he's created. Although I don't like seeing books cut up, they're all second-hand AND if you really want to, you can pop the characters/letters back into the book and it's still readable, give or take a few words. So, you know, no books were (seriously) harmed in the making of these projects. Check out his store, Custom Book Art, if you're after table numbers or book art, and message him for requests if you have any. The characters he's done so far are Peter Pan and Winnie-the-Pooh, but I have it on good authority that he's got Allie and Noah from The Notebook and Sherlock Holmes coming up.
