I found two old books amongst my old old books that were written for love. They both belonged to my husband's Great Aunt Esther. I knew her and she was one of the most generous and loving people. She must have been a romantic at heart.Don't you love the cover of this book. It even has a heart on it for Valentine's Day coming up.
There are many pictures on the inside with love poems. I am not sure where I got this bookmark, I just know I have had it for a long time and it is very old.
This book has a date of 1906 inside. It is covered in a suede that is litterally falling apart. The inside title pages are a crackup to me. People thought a little bit differently in those days. That is quite a 'Title' explanation. Makes me laugh!
I am a Mother of 8, grandmother of almost 27 wonderful little people. Married to a wonderful man for 38 years. I am a published scrapbooker, have decorated wedding cakes, made wedding dresses, had a wedding business, taught baton twirling lessons to girls for almost 40 years, and love to decorate my home inexpensively. I have always been a 'make-due' sort of person. I love dishes, teacups, teapots, and have to be creating something everyday. I love to listen to beautiful uplifting music and watch Masterpiece Theatre and Jane Austen movies while I scrap, craft or sew. I have become addicted to quilting, and dream about quilt blocks now. I am still working on getting better at this art form. I believe that Creating things with your hands is a good outlet and keeps your mind alert, and has a way of helping one lose all the cares of the day and world, right in my own little studio. Therefore I will never become a digital scrapbooker. I think that those who do digital turn out some beautiful pieces of art and lovely layouts, but for me I need to cut and paste by hand!
