I love your collection of yellows.
That little clothesline is so cute!
I like your motto: "It's going to be worth the effort."
I need that reminder too! :)

Margie: I was just thinking this weekend that I should get my "twine-line" up across my kitchen window again. You gave me this wonderful idea last year! The corn looks so yummy. We really miss Ontario corn since moving here...enjoy.


Raspberry corn? Poppytalk week of color? I love vellum too. While sorting through some of my paper (more unpacking) I came across the contract for the lease of land written on vellum from 1790. I have a couple of them that I'd intended on crafting with but the vellum, the seals and the calligraphy on them is so beautiful I haven't had the courage to cut into them. I find it amazing that such a mundane document looks so special. It's just gets added to my collection of things I love but will probably only ever look at instead of use. I must photograph it some time. Documents like this are not that hard to come by here in the UK, it's fun to pour over them and enjoy the language used then too.


What a great find that clothesline was! So useful for so many things!


My great aunt had a very similar clotheslines, it was green though, and it was the first thing I went for when visiting her as a child. She lived in an apartment crammed full of treasures, but it was something about the miniature clothesline that captured my imagination. Maybe it was the mini clothes pins that came with it. Or that it somehow matched with the petit fours she always served. Thank you for unearthing warm memories!


love your yellows! thanks for participating!


I love your blog - it is so calming and peaceful with all your beautiful nature finds. Wish we had porches like yours in the UK.


Vellum graph paper--I'm in love!

I saw an orange leaf floating past me at just above eye level, and I thought it was a lovely Monarch riding a thermal.

Your banner is charming! And I love that little clothesline.
