Paintings with a Book-end | Hobbyideas
A rather innovative theme used for book ends, hats of different kinds made with various mediums like jute, leather pieces and felt fabric. A very good handmade article to gift to a book lover.  A girly frame with varied looks and styles. The four frames have been co odinated very well bringing out the feminity and a every girl's style quotient out. Gift this to a close girl friend of yours giving it a personalised touch with her certain specific nuances and colours on the canvas. It is sure to be appreciated.
