my new diary!

The minute I saw this diary, I knew immediately I had to have it! I saw it at the Frozen Fountain in Amsterdam, an amazing store selling the very best examples of contemporary design home accessories! The illustrations are all from Russian children's books from the 20s and 30s;  every page presents a "story"  and to me a strong reminder of images, impressions and memories from our 2 weeks visit to Russia this past summer... So with some nostalgia I am  flipping the pages and rediscover how powerful and how beautiful folk art is, and how much it shows the similarities among distant people...
