While visiting Kim at Daisy Cottage blog over the past two years, I really enjoyed seeing all of the vintage books she collects and displays in her home. So this past year whenever I am in thrift stores or the antique malls, I look at the vintage books.
I decided to stick with one type of book. I chose Gardening. And I am only buying the ones with covers in the colors I use to decorate my home. Reds, yellows, greens and something new, Blue. I decided my home needs a little blue. So I will be adding blue in different ways over this next year.
Edited: Mimi Sue pointed out the blue book said Wildfowler not Wildflower. I didn't realize that when I purchased the book - I thought it said wild FLOWER..lol. Turns out this book is about hunting wild fowl! Well, I am off to the thrift/antique stores looking for a blue FLOWER book. :-)
Speaking of old fashioned gardening. This is a picture I took this past summer in one of the courtyards at the Biltmore Estate. They are a great source of inspiration for the garden. Head on over to my Home Goods post for more on gardening inspiration. I would love it if you left a comment while there :-).
