Thank you Ruthie for visiting my blog and leaving such beautiful words for me to find.

I love this book of origami, the pages within to create must be divine. Such an amazing work.

Have a beautiful Saturday. xxx

Nice! I'm a fan of paper (book?) art - I did a posting about it on my blog if you would like to take a look:

As ever Ruthie, I don't call in to your blog for a while and when I do I have to take an hour out to catch up with all your amazing links! I'll have to make sure not to miss out on any posts in the future... Anyway, this is especially stunning. Can you just imagine the patience and practice that went into creating it? Just wonderful.

Happy new year to you, by the way. Hope you had a wonderful Hogmanay :)
