The Cherry Notebook

This post is going to be a bit different to the ones that I usually make… Last may, I have received an incredibly beautiful gift from a dear friend whose name is Nurka, and she also lives in one of the most beautiful cities in the world Moscow! (HOW COOL IS THAT?!)
She’s one of these friends that supports my cooking/baking/photography/blogging interests, and when she sees something that she likes, she appreciates it and lets me know that she does like it! (and that makes me very happy knowing that someone actually likes my work) Yeah she’s amazing I’m telling you!
So her gift to me was this stunning recipe notebook, which was customised and handmade especially for me, in Moscow, by Tash.
The design is very unique, there is a little cherry cupcake right in the centre, the title is the word “recipes” in Russian, to close the notebook there is a little crochet flower with a cute button on the right. As well as a super cute raspberry, a cherry, pink flowers, little green buttons, a spoon and a bow on the left.

There is also a thread bookmark with a little cherry at the end which is great as it helps me find the page where I last left it.
A close up to the pretty detailing on the left. I really like the crochet work, it adds a lot to the cover. And where did they even get this little spoon from? I love it!!
Now I gotta say that I’m sort of obsessed with this Notebook, whenever I go to a TV show, or have a photography shoot I take it with me! It’s like my lucky notebook. ❤
Inside the notebook there is a little pocket with a cute pattern of colourful kettles, which may come in handy to keep all the recipes that I already have written on little pieces of paper!
There are 5 separators in the notebook, in the picture above is one of them. If you would like to see them all, you can go on Tash’s blog by clicking here.
Nurka also happens to be a very talented person that enjoys scrapbooking, crafts, and blogging. To check her work out click here, she also made two gorgeous handmade cards for me before, so I will be making quick posts about them later to show you guys how amazing is her work.
