This Saturday will be my mother's birthday, so in her honor, I am sharing her absolutely gorgeous baby book.
I love every thing about this book, the satin cover, the handpainting on the cover and the delicious illustrations.
In case you're worried, I do have her permission to share her birth date.
And here is the birthday girl in the hospital with my grandmother.
That's also her in the picture up in my blog banner.
For those of you looking for evidence of my crafty pursuits, I must admit that I spent my free time yesterday finishing my resume and I spent today networking at an association meeting. But tomorrow, I plan to do nothing (except walk the dog) until I have used those all three of the ingredients shown in my photo, to make something crafty.
Until then, don't forget to check out all the lovely Vintage Thingies showcased over at Vintage Thingie Thursday.
