Op Shop Find

This book in the window of my local op shop caught my eye as I was walking
 the dogs. I headed back once the shop opened as I had to have it! 
I just love the cover. Even better was it only cost $2!
Annabella Boswell's Journal
Life in the 1830's and 1840's
It is illustrated with her own water colours and
 drawings and was published in 1965.
Beautiful illustrations.

I'm looking forward to reading this once I finish my current book. 
It will be interesting to read about Annabella's life.
