This weeks Tag Tuesday theme is Books
So I made a bookmark Tag.
This tag was cut from a lovely birthday card I was given last year.
It's so pretty as is, double sided,
the front has gold highlights
This is the back
I didn't need to do anything else to it, so I concentrated on the tie .....
with yarns, threads and ribbons in complimenting colours.
I threaded on some handmade focal beads to give added weight for use as a bookmark,
its now being put to good use :)
On the subject of books
For Christmas my Son David bought me 2 books from my wish list ...
The Wonderful Weekend Book
I'm already halfway through this lovely book by the late Elspeth Thompson and I can tell it will be a favourite here and I'm not the only one picking it up and browsing through the chapters :)
It's about enjoying time, appreciating the simple things and taking time to smell the roses...... it is sad that Elspeth is no longer with us, her blog is a lovely source of inspiration and I still visit and read it.
I do intend to try every one of the recipes which she has put in the book. they all sound so delicious.
He also bought me
I haven't started it yet, but looking forward to it.
Went to the boot sale on Sunday.
I lucked in with a big bag of Music manuscripts & books.
I have been looking out for some sheet music for a while to use for a couple of projects. However, after closer inspection, some of them seemed to be quite old so I have been researching each one thoroughly before using in my art. I wouldn't want to cut up anything of great value.
There is even a hand written one!
