Cookbooks and Daughters

I have two daughters that are at the edge of not living at home anymore.
They both were interested in having cookbooks, and since I love making books. . .  
I made them cook books. 

This one is decorated with the paper from used tea bags
with a collage from my hand decorated paper added.

I love the colours and patterns the tea leaves make as the bags are drying. 

Daughter # 2 (birth order that is) loves grey, 
so I added some greys and blues to the cover  
before adding a copy of some birds i drew 
and a smattering of collage bits. 

I have no doubts these books will be filled with yummy recipes
and enjoyed for many years to come.
