A better day

These are pages from the book that I made for my daughter in Oz. I apologize for the poor photos.I started this book a year ago to remind her of some of the things and places she misses at home, she wanted ducks so one birthday we gave her 2 they turned out to be male and female, and they went at it hammer and tongs, I never had to explain about the birds and the bees to my 3 as they saw it everyday, they had 24 offspring and won lots of pet shows.They ruined the garden, and what do you do with 10 plus ducks when you want to go on holiday?Although we shut them up at night we had trouble with foxes and we often came home to a blood bath which was agonising,we did manage to rescue a couple by charging after the fox throwing things but eventually they got the lot.

My daughter and her husband are a bit minimalist so I only make things if and when asked. No upsets or pretence that way. But we bloggers like to see and appreciate each others work.

That is a lovely reminder of home and her childhood for your daughter. Something small she can put in a drawer and take out when she's a little homesick.
