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


LATEST project - I'm compiling a "handed down" recipes boom and so if I get you in a swap, would you be so kind to find a recipe from your childhood. type it up - if you want to decorate, then please do :

There was a woman who felted

love to take part in personal swaps, I would love a poppet of my very own, or a doll like the ones made by Poppets & Lace
