    This is great…because…I just so happen to volunteer in a thrift shop…and I take care of the books when they come in and I make a habit of pullling bookmarks or pictures, whatever is in the book and saving them..I was waiting for the right reason before I did anything with them.

    I’ll rummage through my drawer and see if there is anything of interest….although it looks like you have ALOT…
