I have been looking for sheet music to use in my collages- but cant find any. This week I visited the Book Exchange and found this church hymnary (which will now be used as collage pages and become beautiful artwork - to Glorify Him!) I also couldnt resist the book on the right- it was so beautifully embellished- they dont make books like that anymore. So it had to come home with me to be added to my collection of old books: (The two of these together cost me R12- Bargain!)
This is part of the collection. I think they are so beautiful - so they get displayed all over the place!
Just as a matter of interest I wanted to show you this little book. It is over 100 years old. The inscription inside :
That is 14 July 1909 !!!! (before the invention of the ballpoint pen!)
Aren't these too adorable - like mini Aloes? My friend, Linell, gave me these - and TODAY they are going to be planted Linell!!! (I Promise!)
I ordered some more wool from Woolhogs and because of their November special I received two free balls of wool. I requested the Bambi wool as my freebee. It is 70% organic cotton and 30% bamboo. It is very textured and absolutely gorgeous - Dont you just love the Aubergine colour?
And the final little gift I want to share with you today is this lovely quote, sent to me by Linell. I have added it to my "collection". LOVE IT :
"Friendship is born at the moment when one person says to another: "what? you too? I thought I was the only one." "
