You have so many clever ideas for your photos. Another great one.

Lovely picture! I have that book as well. It was my mothers and I learned to tat from it. I love it.

I used to have that same sewing booklet!!! I wonder if I've still got it stashed somewhere...I hardly ever throw anything away.

I have three copies that that same book. I use it all of the time. I am saving the extra books for my girls for when they have places of their own!

It is that green I always think of as "spring green" - so new and fresh.
I have that very booklet - which really dates me!!

I have to say that your blog is one of my favorite blogs to see and read. Every time I turn on my computer I am compelled to go to your corner of the world.

Thank you for the beauty and inspiration. You are an amazing photographer and your prose...

Three of my favorite things: that citrusy green color, vintage goodies, and bringing nature indoors! Lovely post!

After turquoise and orange, this green is my favorite color right now! I have that book, too, looks like it was fairly commonplace by the looks of the comments!
