Bird Domino Book

I think I am becoming just a little bit hooked on these tiny little treasures. I made another domino book yesterday, and just looking at it makes me smile. And I am already planning the next one, lol. So please bear with me if I get somewhat carried away with photographs.

I used some really gorgeous bird graphics for this domino book. The front is decorated with a bird image, a tiny little real feather found in the garden, a little silk flower, an embossed paper leaf and a piece of a black feather from a vintage hat. For the background I tried to get that gorgeous vintage green and gold which you find on old original Lloyd Loom chairs. Like the one I have in the cottage in France.

The front -

The back-


Inside -

Outside -



I suppose I had better get some chores done before I start on the next one. DH and DS3 are going to France Saturday morning to get the cottage ready for the winter and to take some trees down on our property. Nick also has some work lined up with neighbours, hopefully that will keep them out of mischief, lol. Soooo, I should have plenty of time to list lots of the treasures I bought in France during the summer on my Vintageland blog or Artfire.

For now I wish you all a very good day and happy crafting. Toodlepip xxx

Liz you never cease to amaze me - how nimble really are your fingers? The little book is divinely delicate and sweet with those beautiful bird images and, of course, it wouldn't be complete without those feathers!
