If you didn't know it was October on the calendar, notice the cooler weather,pumpkins all around you might think I was stuck in Spring or Summer by these photos. I had fun the other day finally shooting some of the little things I bought at Brimfield. Sorry for the Easter card too! I'll save some of the other Holiday ones for another time. Couldn't start with the Christmas cards quite yet. I was lucky and found a booth that sold vintage postcards only. They were a cute old couple that just let me quietly peruse their extensive collection. What fun to read some of the messages on the back. Almost as wonderful as the images on the front. Wish they made them like that now.
The ribbon you see was from that wonderful booth I showed you here. I spent more time buying various linens. Too many to show you now. The salvia is from the huge pot I keep . It has to be brought in the greenhouse during the winter. It was immense this year. I dried it out so many times but it still survived. I think it likes a little abuse. By abuse I don't mean I forgot about it for days. It needed 2 gallons of water everyday at least. I have a bouquet in the kitchen by my sink and makes dish washing more enjoyable. You might be surprised but I like doing dishes! Gets the dirt under my nails cleaned! 2 birds with one stone.
Well I just put in another loaf of ciabatta bread. Out in 30 minutes and then I have to run. I was off eating bread for a week but I just can't do it. I have to have bread in my diet even if I have to cut out something else. Not sure what that will be......there isn't much bad food I eat anymore.
Is there a certain food you can't live without?
What does bread, dishwashing and my salvia have to do with these vintage finds? Nothing just gives you an idea how my brain works:)
oh yeah it's Friday I think I will join Deb at VIF
