a Finnish cookbook-2

a look inside my mother’s old cookbook:

some pages on cake making

a handwritten recipe on a blank page – a naughty habit of mine as well

many loose bits of paper inserted throughout, some with handwritten recipes and some clippings from newspapers – also my habit

traces of a child’s colouring with crayon – mine? my little brother’s?

Why do I find such beauty in disintegrating paper?
