Recently spotted these on Etsy and couldn’t resist sharing.
Michelle of Chick-Lit Designs specializes in designer book purses, clutches, eReader and iPad/tablet covers. If the book is large enough, the handbag will include a pocket for your eReader.
Aren’t they fun? A great novelty gift that blends the old with the new. If you don’t see a book that you like at her shop, she will try to find the perfect book. Or, if you already have a book that you would like converted into a purse or cover, place a custom order.
In case you’re worried about the book pages, Michelle donates them fully intact to a local refugee center. You also have the option of having her re-bind them in matching fabric. Nice gift set idea for your special bookish friends. ☺

It is well established that Paris has the best pastry.
Not too long ago, I rhapsodized about the mighty macaron, a wonder of airy-crisp almond flour, egg whites, sugar and buttercream. Très delicieux!
It is good reason, along with a fortifying pain au chocolat or sweet crêpe, to flee the States and embrace the Seine.
Until that happens, I can always get my French fix by visiting Bonjour Mon Coussin, where luscious food images adorn pillows, purses, scarfs, pencil cases, aprons, mugs and jewelry.
These oh-so-fetching, eye-popping products are created by Claire Eglizeaud and Paul Moreau, a designer and graphic artist from Bordeaux, who are inspired by vintage postcards and advertisements as well as objects found in their own modern world.
Of course their designs encompass more than food — I LOVE this book bag:
and these earrings,
and this pillow,
but I always come back to things like this (cutest pencil case ever):
I love the whole retro-pop/vintage/Parisian vibe. Anyone have a few Euros to spare?
