My birthday present

My fabulous parents-in-law always give me cash for my birthday, I suppose because I have asked for some quite strange gifts in the past - soldering iron, heat gun, bench drill :) 
I have had my eye on this book for ages, but it was expensive and I have too many books, but I succumbed and spent this years birthday money on Amazon.

My heart beat faster when I opened the book.  It is wonderful, the colours are fantastic, the work is amazing and beautifully photographed.  It has been a long time since I was so inspired by anything.  THANK YOU Jan Messent.

If I have wetted your interest, you can have a look inside the book at Amazon

I succumbed to this book some time ago and it is beautiful. I shall have to refresh my memory of it!
