Counting Blessings...

I have been meaning to show this on my blog for a while now...
A wonderful Birthday gift of a handmade journal, was created for me by my dear friend Bee...
I was overwhelmed to receive such a personal, inspiring and painstakingly produced book...
The work on each of the decorated pages was so beautifully executed and must have taken hours to complete. 
Vintage lace motifs and old linen buttons...

Inside a little cotton envelope...
A tiny key. 

A fabric flower page marker holds encouraging words...

More wise words.

A treasure for always...
Just like Bee!
