I've had Maryjo Koch's beautiful book, Bird Egg Feather Nest (1998), on my book stand for a couple of weeks now. Her illustrations are so wonderful and evocative of the season.
Full of quotes and information next to detailed drawings, it's the perfect thing to get a little inspiration at the start of the day.
I have also been in line of sight of an antique quilt I adopted a short time ago and have had over the back of a sitting room chair since bringing it into the house.
It's a true relic. The back fabric has become brittle and will come apart with the gentlest care in washing. In the old days someone would have made a new backing and placed it right over the original. But it was obviously stored with love and care to this point and deserves a showing.
Because of it's condition, the only way I can ever use it is for display. But for the price of a bunch of market flowers I can appreciate it's charms for as long as I care to.
The constant fight between my mutual urges for white and bright versus deep and muted colors (earthy hues) is on display here too. I have a true emotional response to each. I have a lacy underskirt peeking through as if to say "your slip is showing!" And, well, I guess it is.
I hope you have a great weekend ahead!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Ciao! for now!
