This beautiful little book is made with pockets to tuck pretty little things into.
The front is decorated with a snippet of vintage lace and a tiny key tied with an organza ribbon.
The book ties together with thin crafters thread through two little heart-shaped lock embellishments.
Inside are 6 little card hearts with ink-smudged edges, just lovely to write a little love note or special date on.
The back is finished with a heart lock and a small heart-shaped button.

This one is covered in a blue and beige scrapbook paper and finished with a vintage-style plate, turquoise wooden heart-shaped button and pearly beads. The little padlocks on the front and back cover relate to the fastening string to tie the book closed.
The spine is decorated with giddy little ribbon ties in organza and ric-rac braid knots.
and the signature ties are finished off with little paper hearts and tags.

I made this book a while ago and added the finishing touches recently.
The cover is made with a scrapbook paper printed with postcards and old letters. It is decorated with a newsprint frame, tiny jigsaw pieces and a wooden heart button...
with the signatures tied through the spine with cotton twill ribbon knots.
The pages are made up from craft papers, handmade papers,
pretty card, old book pages, vellum and doilies.
The signature ties are finished with little charms of acorns and a leaf...
...and a tiny tree and flower charm.

I accidently slipped into a little bit of crafting this afternoon, with no particular plan to follow. I petted some of my favourite fabrics, pinched and snipped my fingers on my wire cutters and pliers before coming up with this little idea...
then finished off with a Christmassy tatty raggedy heart...
with jingle bells

I started making over my battered little suitcase before the Summer but whenever I came to finish it off there was a kittycat taking a nap in it. I finally finished it this morning...
..painted ivory with some of the original leather still peeking through in parts...
...lined with a pretty vintage style fabric...
...and now a new place for me to store ribbons and buttons and pretty lace.
