A True Gardener’s Notebook

This gorgeous, needle-felted journal was made by beautifulplace (Etsy).  It was a gift from the generous and very talented paranormal and steampunk author, Lynn Viehl, who had a give away contest earlier this month.
photoTouching this journal makes you feel like you’re holding nature in your hands. I love it.  I would recommend beautifulplace for unusual gifts for gardeners or nature lovers.

photo The interior of the journal has handmade paper that’s almost-but-not-quite too pretty to write on.  In fact, I’ve already started recording the 2014 gardening season in it!

Thanks again to Lynn Viehl for introducing me to this wonderful artist’s work.*

 

*You can visit Lynn’s great blog at pbackwriter.blogspot.com. Or check out her latest steampunk series, Disenchanted & Co., set in a Victorian era America in which the United States lost the war of independence. If that intrigues you, give Lynn’s work a try.  She’s a really good storyteller.
