Over the weekend I finished up the photo album cover that utilized a special heirloom hankie on the cover. Hopefully the recipient will like it!
The front cover with the lace-edged hankie to the left of the cross-stitched 'Photos'.
Another view of the front, showing the buttons I used on the spine.
The back. This was made with a piece of harvested wedding dress satin with a couple more hankies for added interest.
The 'love' part of this post comes from what my DH bought me over the weekend. Our local Canadian Tire store (of all places!) had a lovely shipment of bamboo arrangements come in and I ended up coming home with this....
It's hard to tell from this picture, but the entire thing stands about three feet tall. The vase itself is stunning and it's filled with layers of beautiful stones and pretty coloured sand. Perhaps if you click and embiggen the picture you can see it better. Now the trick will be to keep it alive!!
Edited to add: Linking up with SuperMomNoCape's linkie party HERE.
Today's quote is from James Russell Lowell...."All the beautiful sentiments in the world weigh less than a single lovely action"
