My Heart's in the Highlands

Soon, when spring begins to push up her green shoots and blooms, I will be making a voyage to Scotland after a few days in Northern England. In preparation, I have crafted the travel journal which will accompany me. I'll share a post-voyage look at the journal once the miles and oceans are behind me.
Distressed leather with elastic closure. [Can you spot the unfortunate stain left by a rogue goldfish cracker, that I mostly got out with sandal cleaner?!]
A long stitch of sorts with an antiqued metal embellishment

Endpapers of greens and golds with a vintage bookplate of a woodcut complete with traveling gnome.

Ink and watercolor painting of Scotland and Northern England with counties labeled.
