It’s that time of the week again. This time I thought I would deviate from sewing stuff and share one of my other loves – books.
We have lots and lots of books. There are bookcases everywhere in our house, but my treasure lives in this one. The photos aren’t the best as it is another grey old day here.
When my Aunty Rose visited us some years ago she was browsing the shelves and noticed I have quite a few of the “Billabong” series by Mary Grant Bruce. Shortly thereafter, a parcel arrived enclosing this volume.
They say that writing on the fly leaf reduces the value of a book, but for me this makes it so very special.
Muriel was my Dad’s aunt. She died when I was about 10 and I never met her. I did however receive my first inheritance from her estate. I was given her embroidered handkerchief sachet full of beautiful hankies.
Anyway, I digress.
The book was then passed down to my Aunty Rose who is also my godmother and she has now passed it on to me. I hope that one day one of my nieces will appreciate this little book as well.
Pop over to Clare’s to see some more Tuesday Treasures.
