Using your loaf!

This is my first commissioned piece and to say I was nervous is an understatement!  My friend wanted something for her mums new country kitchen, she provided the book and it was up to me to choose the piece!

I found a plain wooden bread bin and covered it with the brilliant old 1950's cookbook, using other old recipe book pictures for the inside.   I matched the handle and hinge to the colour of the stripes on the pages.

I love the fact that the book was well loved and complete with all the usual cookery stains, it makes a completely personal piece!
