Extras accompanying the bookcase

I made the bookcase from the previous post as a thank you gift, which BTW, I really hope the recipient likes it. I didn't want to just send a lone bookshelf, so I made a few extras for the journey. They are not intended for the actual bookcase.

After everything was all packed and ready to ship I realized I could have rusted the zinc container a bit (just because I really like the rusted It's okay though. We'll just say that it's never been used outside. =) That gray-ish thing on the bottom shelf is what is supposed to be made out of zinc, in case you're wondering. =D

Here's a closer look at the mossy letter. I really like this! Don't know why, just think it's cute!

Sorry for the poor lighting of the pics. It was all rain and gloom here this past week.

Hope everyone had a good weekend and ready for the week ahead!   =)

    Casey: I found that paper at Hobby Lobby. That one and the one covering the back of the bookcase are my faves. They are very pretty in person. Unfortunately, HL is just about an hour away from me so it's not a store I visit often. =(
