i want…

Chemistry book bag by Rebound Designs I already have one book bag from Caitlin, The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire. It was love at first sight, well almost. I really wanted The Odyssey or The Iliad, but alas they were not available. Old hardcover books are reworked into beautiful handbags.
