A Book a Week 2014: Made, Altered, Repaired. Week 16

Week of 21 April

The Northfield, MN Hospital Auxiliary has an amazing book sale every spring. My mom has volunteered with them for years, and always lets me know when to come to the sale. Not that I need any more books in my house:

One more - this one made me laugh because my mom used to get us to do work for her by calling it "fun and games".
