Victorian Love Altered Book by Zippityduda

This gorgeous altered book would make an absolutely lovely wedding present for a dear couple or gift for your sweetheart. I'm donating this on behalf of my very talented mother who can take an abandoned book and a bunch of random found objects and turn them into a stunning, one-of-a-kind work of art.

This book has little pockets and dangles and all sorts of lovely sentiments, from fortune cookie wisdom to Dr. Seuss, all centered on love and life. This is one of my favorites because it's in a 3-ring binder format, so you could make a page or two to add your personal sentiments to make this gift truly special.

Add your own pages and photos to make it a one of a kind keepsake scrapbook, or keep it as it is for the most beautiful and unique coffee table book you'll ever own. The turn of each page brings a new lovely surprise!

Donated by Zippityduda - learn more about this and her other products by visiting her shop!

Bidding starts at $20 - Leave your bids in the comments! Auction closes at 11:59pm Sunday night.
