I have a "Paul Bunyan" coloring book. It's from the 90s, but it's in fairly good shape (minus some wrinkling), and is completely unused.

TAKEN   ---   Amaazing these weren't snapped up last month, but I still have a set of dental x-rays to offer.  Perhaps someone can use them in a craft?  Two are about the size of a playing card, and I have 17 bite-wing sized.  Can anyone use these?

If so, just zing me a pm.

A few things for February heart:

1)  TAKEN  A packet of Mary Engelbreit "F" holiday notecards (blank inside).  Photo: https://flic.kr/p/r3tShu 

2)  TAKEN  Two packages of pastel seashell buttons.  Photo: https://flic.kr/p/qL8RH4

3)  TAKEN  Two pieces of embroidered 'ribbon'; looks like cork, backed with fabric -- maybe could be made into cool bookmarks? Photo: https://flic.kr/p/r3tNE9 

4)  TAKEN  Cute vintage porcelain kitty doohickey (a cat with roses, how apropos!)  with "Norcrest, Japan" sticker on the bottom.  I've never known what one earth this is for (maybe to hold mail in the wire spine? But why the hole in the top?).  Ready for someone new to enjoy :o)   Photos: https://flic.kr/p/qL6ZSg  https://flic.kr/p/q6y2SL  

5)  TAKEN  A blue stretchy 'tube top' type of top by Derek Heart, size S.  Bust has a liner.  Seems like this would be cute if worn underneath a t-shirt, for layering, with the pretty blue edge hanging beneath the tee's hem.  NEW with tags.  Photo:  https://flic.kr/p/r5oyrB

6)  TAKEN  Gotta offer some lingerie for Valentine's Day!  This is a short satin nighty by Sleep Club, yellow with little blue flowers, adjustable straps, size M.  Cute!  Photo: https://flic.kr/p/q8KqbP

7)   TAKEN  I wish I would have found these sooner -- mail already came today, so I doubt they'll make it to you in time for Valentine's Day (but there's always next year!)  Sheet of Valentine's heart stickers:  https://flic.kr/p/qNEsnV 

8)  TAKEN  A package of "Monoadhesive Temporary Bond" for temporary self-sticking and repositioning of notes, charts, photos, etc.  Since it might be good for card making, am throwing in some blank notecard stock as well.  Photo:  https://flic.kr/p/qQpStQ 

9)  TAKEN  Three vintage, colorful hankies (a little dingy from age; might be a good idea to soak in White King or Borax or something similar).  Photo: https://flic.kr/p/qaXTKG 

10)  TAKEN  Gorgeous vintage yellow chiffon apron which looks to be made from vintage hankies with yellow daffodils; even the pocket flap has a pretty yellow daffodil; really lovely!  Photos: https://flic.kr/p/r7YuUk   https://flic.kr/p/r7PygK 

11)  TAKEN  OK, I will confess to trash-picking these trial samples of "Black Coarse Soft Sand Rubber Particles", which my dh was given but ultimately tossed (shhh don't tell him -- I'm keeping some to try myself!).  It's in a shaker bottle and the particles can be sprinkled onto wet paint for either decorative purposes or practical purposes (giving a non-stick surface to painted surfaces).  Some very interesting info./applications on the web page, www.softsandrubber.com if you want to check it out before requesting a bottle.  Kitty in photo NOT included, lol!! (Isn't he ADORABLE?!!) Photo:  https://flic.kr/p/qbb8jF

PM me if you can use any of these!
