Junk Mail

When I left a comment on Halle's blog so I would be entered to win one of her hand made creations (One World, One Heart), it was like every other time I left a comment to enter a drawing. I was hopeful but not laying bets. But this time

The really cool part is that although I had admired this particular journal, I had no idea it was a junk journal made up of paper scrap. My favorite kind!!!
This salt and dye page is one of my particular favorites.

As is this retro spread.

All disguised as a conservative looking day planner circa 1978.
My grandmother's favorite flower was lily of the valley as is my mom's (she is a May baby), so the cover of this journal is sentimental to me.
The best prize on all counts!
And thank you also Halle for the tea you enclosed!

I took a "Remains of the Day" journal online class and it uses scrap mail, etc. I haven't made my journal yet but have tinkered around with some pages. They are just beautiful journals. Congrats on the win!

Congrats!! Wonderful book! Lilies of the valley have always been my favorite too- if only I could get them to grow here.
