Abby started a Beautiful Book Week and that's just the right thing for me as a bookworm and bookcollector! The one above gave my father to me, it's from 1957. The title "Das Faxenbuch" is translated "The jestbook". It's so charming old-fashioned and if you like to toss or learn little legerdemains (I do!) a treasure trove.
"Het Plantenrijk" = "The plant kingdom" is a Dutch translation from a British original edition from 1966. It's a schoolbook.There are beautiful graphics in it and inspiring drawings. Besides I like the Dutch language, though I don't understand all of it.
I didn't hear anything from my 3. commenter, if he'd like to join PIF, so I think he won't. There's one free place for somebody who wants to get a surprise parcel from me with a handmade gift and sends himself a parcel to three others. Want to join?
There are so many cats in the neighbourhood coming to our pond for fishing. If one of them was successful, the goldfish are a bit shy and hide out on the ground for some time. (They don't bemourn a fellow right now as you can see.)
Elly linked on her blog to the Björk video "Who is it?", don't miss! Björk is wearing an incredible dress in it. She really is a style ikon.

So, I joined "PIF-pay it forward", the fabulous thing, that has been started by Heather Smith Jones.
Here the rules: I will send a handmade gift to the first 3 people who leave a comment on my blog requesting to join this PIF exchange. I don't know what that gift will be yet and you may not receive it tomorrow or next week, but you will receive it within 365 days, that is my promise! The only thing you have to do in return is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog.
What a nice idea, Heather, so many surprise parcels all over the world. (I was lucky enough to be one of the first 3 on smosch's blog :)
P.S.: Heather told me in her comment, that she wasn't actually the initiator of PIF, but joined as well. So, thanks dear Heather for clearing and thanks to you unknown for starting PIF :)
