I was recently in the fairy swap, and having just finished one of my own "re-loved" books, I knew I had to make a fairy themed one for my partner. On a trip to my favourite charity shop I came across....... can you believe it !!!! an old Grimms book !!! What better book could I have discovered for this project
What is hard to see from the photos - is that I also managed to get hold of a sheet of tiny little sticky back jewels which I used throughout the book, and it met it was all sparkly :O GOOOOrgeousness.
Lots and lots of photos Smiley

Enjoy - and let me know which is your favourite Smiley



These fairy charms were rescued from an old childs bracelet (yes I found it at the charity shop) and were perfect for dangling off the edges












My favourite page......






thanks for stopping by Smiley
