The book itself is made of mostly re-purposed materials and lace. The cover fabric was a sample piece.....the kind that often ends up in the trash if not rescued. Some of the lace has been salvaged from vintage pillow cases, dresser scarves, tablecloths and hankies. A few pieces were made by my grandmother and mother as sample pieces to try out a new pattern. I also used a piece of fabric from my mother's wedding gown.
The next page is of my grandmother and her 3 children. The tags have other pictures of the children.
These are the only pictures that I have of my grandmother and I wanted a special treasury of these to share with my aunt for her birthday. She just turned (shhh) 84 yrs. young!
Lovely layers of lacey goodness.
I am submitting this heartfelt creation to the following challenges:

Anything But a Card where they are asking "Who are you inspired by?".
