Shabby chic book.



Morning bloggers. I was very busy on this and I am working on something else that's going to take some time to complete, so I hope you won't think bad of me if I am not around much. I was however, please with this very much. It may have taken time, but time well spent I think you will agree. This will be added to the items for sale in my folksy shop I hope you will take time to look HERE.






Here are some close ups of the inside of the book. you can use this for several ideas. As a photo album, to give as a gift to a special some one. Or you can fill the spaces with your thoughts or quotes you like, you can even use this as a base for a personal scrap book, you choose. I have given it a shabby chic/vintage look which is very popular and of course you know I love these types of elements.


Even the back looks good. Imagine this on a coffee table, it just beg's to be picked up and be browsed through, a nice conversational piece to. Now I hope to upload some photos of the kittens soon just 3wks old now, they have their eyes open and they are just lovely balls of fluffy yumminess bless. There is also A challenge I really want to play before Monday, and James is coming for a long weekend from today so I am really trying to push a lot in by the end of the week (fingers crossed) ha ha. And welcome to the new followers Romance of roses, Two crazy crafters & Lisa M Griffin I have made it to over 250 followers (who would of thought) So I will also sort out some small give away soon for this achievement. Love Dawn xx

Love the "shabby chic" look. The lace down the middle seam, fantastic idea.

This is a fantastic piece of work ...I just keep looking at it. I am a hoarder but when I moved in 2005 I got rid of so much ...how I wish i had know you then as one thing was a Satsuma trio I had picked up at a fair.

Angie said...

Just popped back to say that your trio is more likely Hohoenberg ... from what I can work out ...and I think you got a bargain.xx

Angie said...

sorry ....HOHENBERG ...xx

Dawn- your book is wonderful. It really looks like a lot of work ... hopefully a labor of love!
I have to comment on your cats... I have 2 cats as well - my boy is Earl Grey (charcoal gray and white) and my girl is Paris (black velvet)! I used to own a tea room so when I rescued them I just had to name them after teas. Paris tea is a wonderful black flavored tea and was one of our most popular teas, second only to Yorkshire Gold.
Blessing,
