I recently found Eleanor's old flower press from when she was a child. Mick and I had been looking for a flower press for her and was unable to find one, and then we were browsing in all the little shops in The Shambles in York one day when we came across this one. It was in a shop which sold all manner of wooden goods, but sadly, I don't think the shop's there any longer.
When I opened the flower press earlier this week there were lots of little flowers still in there. It took me back to a walk we'd taken years ago in some woods near where I lived as a child. Eleanor had collected a few flowers and pressed them when we got home.
It's got me thinking, I'd really like to start some sort of nature journal.
Wouldn't it be lovely to add pressed flowers to it.
I think the lovely Traveller's Notebook which Nikki from Notes of Life made me would be perfect to use as a nature journal.
I think I'll collect and press flowers throughout each month and then I can journal and use the pressed flowers at the end of the month. A project for the new year I think.
