      I never advocate destroying antique books, but if all you have is bits and pieces of a cover or spine, neat idea! Mark with the Spine ~ Here's a past-perfect idea for old books. -- If a vintage book is falling apart, gently remove the spine from the binding and neatly trim the edges to create a bookmark. -- Using glue, adhere the spine to heavy card stock. -- To seal, brush on a light coat of decoupage medium. -- Punch a hole in the top edge; thread a corded tassel through.

    Vinegar works as a wood stain when you add a metal object in the mix and let it sit in a glass container for a week.  A handful of pennies will produce a beautiful pale Caribbean blue stain.  A wad of steel wool will give you a rich reddish hue.  A combination of tea and a metal object in vinegar will produce a black stain. Log this away for later.
