For her birthday this year, I gave my mother an embellished book. I recovered and re-bound it, and embellished some of the pages. Not as many as I originally wanted, but you have to sleep, sadly.
(This is a very image heavy post)
Inside Front Cover - the book is 'Crusts and Crusades' that I picked up from an op-shop (thrift store). It was written by the Right Honourable William (Bill) Hughes, who was one of Australia's war time Prime Ministers.
