Spoonful of Chocolate Hope

I posted about Spoonful of Chocolate Hopes adorable recycled book handbags over on my other blog, Pauvre Plume, today. But I’m guessing a lot of my Words&Eggs readers would express equal interest in her literary creations, so… here you go.

You’re welcome.
🙂

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ChapterOneThe other day, I was very graciously introduced to the lovely recycled book handbags of Spoonful of Chocolate Hope. Haven’t you always wanted Jane Eyre or Anne of Green Gables hanging on your arm? Yeah, me too.

And as if the literary awesomeness of these bags weren’t enough, Ms. Spoonful’s mission proves even more admirable: all profits are going to her father, who is currently struggling to keep the house that he built with his own two hands when he immigrated to America.

On her Etsy site, Ms. Spoonful assures us that no books were harmed in the making of these lovely little handbags:

I take gently used books and only use the covers. I then take the sleeve and wrap it back on to the fully in-tact book and donate it to a Refugee Center here in Arizona called the IRC.
However, if you would like for me to make a new matching cover for the book, please let me know it would be an additional $15. You can view an example of the book cover here:

Some of my favorites, all of which are available in her Etsy store:

I am in love with the toile lining of this one...

Did I mention that Ms. Spoonful takes custom orders?? Yep. I’ve already been in touch with her about a Frenchified handbag…🙂

  1. You’re completely right Pauvre Plume and/or Words & Eggs🙂. These books are pure treasures of literature. I have just chosen “Gone with the wind” and the beautiful fabric/ lining – in French we call it Toile de Jouy-. Nice blog : congrats🙂
