Favorite Things & a "New" Book




Bits and pieces of one of one of my favorite collages.

No time right now for any creating,
so hope this old favorite will inspire you.

Here is a new banner I put together in Banner Maker.
Not bad for a rookie, but the one my daughter
is designing will be so much better.
If you want to take a peek at the idea we are
working on, go HERE.
Glad to hear any feedback you have for me.
When finished, it will be on all my blogs too.

And this is my new book.

The American Woman' Cookbook, 1944.
A bit tattered and faded, but wonderful inside.
$12 + shipping

Thanks for coming by

Hope all is well! Your collages are lovely. And the cover of that cookbook is so pretty -- aqua is my new favorite color even though I have absolutely nothing around me in that shade. Have a blessed weekend. Tammy

That looks like a great cookbook. It is so fun to find treasures of the past like that. Are the recipes hard or involved? I would think women spent more time in the cookbook than with Betty Crocker mixes like we do now!

I love your collage, Barbara Jean! I adore all things bird, nest and egg related:) Don't you just love those old cookbooks? i have a very old one that belonged to my hubby's mom. Take care!

I never tire from gazing at your creations--old or new. And I love the new banner with the four windows. I sing because...you came by to visit me. Thanks!
Easter Blessings ;-)

Hi Barbara Jean,

I love your collage and I bet that cookbook has a lot of black line drawings in it??

Have a blessed Easter and lots of Pink Sparkles for your day,
