The book basket ideas continue, if you want to know what I’m on about the introduction to this idea is here.
Our example: the Parasol Protectorate books
1. Order signed from Borderlands (Definitely get your request in before Dec 15th, that’s the last time I’ll be able to get in to sign stock for them before the holidays.)
2. Source a vintage looking basket, possibly from a local thrift store
3. Fill with accompanying fun items, many of which might also be found at a thrift store
Changeless Madame Lefoux Cross-Dressing and/or Scotland themed
- Alternative book option: All Men of Genius (Gail’s interview with the author)
- For nesting: plaid tissue paper or plaid fabric scrap or silly plaid pants
- Great moustaches mug
- Fake mustaches or DIY your own
- Tiny top hat
- Mustache bandages
- Steampunk jewelry
- Steampunk gadget like this DIY Nerf mod

Next up in this blog I’ll do a fantasy book basket idea for Blameless, in the meantime I’m interested in your ideas. Anything you’ve run across that would fit with this theme? Suggestions for good recipes? Other books that might work with this basket?
Still basking my the manga’s #1 debut. Otherwise, kinda slow at the moment, busy working on Prudence 24/7.
