More on The Library of Lost Words -

I did promise that I would let you know as soon as I unwrapped a packet of lost words, so true to my word, here we are.


The top page is pretty badly affected, but the other eight in the bundle look beautifully worn.


What is left of the top page's word...


So having unwrapped a bundle I began to play with a rusty old tin.




Putting a tied bundle in...


And then the untied bundle with some fellow travellers alongside.



What's not to love about a bundle?

  4. Oh - simply beautiful! And I just read about the washing up after the digging up! I'd say it's been a grand "success" - in both process & result. And how lucky we all are to be able to witness the outcome...
