Handmade objects always have a story. They have a real character and charm over mass-produced items. My blog is featuring all the handmade items I make and I'm also going to post Free Patterns for crocheting, knitting and other crafts. I'm also going to post my favourite recipes for free! Are you interested in a certain pattern or recipe? Feel free to contact me.

I love to recycle books and records and create unique purses, clocks, IPhone docks, Ereader Tablet Covers, hollow safe books. You can find my crafting in My RETROGRANDMA Etsy Store

I also love to seek out collectible treasures and you can find them in my RetroClassics shop on Etsy

I've had a number of opportunities for my unique handmade items to be featured on many blogs. I LOVE the RETRO ERA and that's why they call me "RETROGRANDMA"! FOLLOW ME ON TWITTER: http://www.twitter.com/Retrograndma

Handmade Nancy Drew Handbag The Crooked Banister

Yet another Nancy Drew Book Handbag. I like the macrame handles - gives it a different twist than the beaded handles. Did I mention that I do customer orders? I've done quite alot of them....my next order is someone who wants to personalize and give each of her bridesmaids a handbag made out of one of their favourite books. What a great idea! Something unique and will always be remembered!

Handmade Nancy Drew Book Handbags

Like I mentioned before I'm "addicted" to making book handbags! I just purchased alot more volumes of the Nancy Drew books. Here are my latest - Nancy Drew Clue of the Broken Locket Handbag and Nancy Drew Clue in the Jewel Box. I've made these with macrame handles...something a little different than the beaded handles I've been making.
