Vintage Botanical Window


You may remember the post I did on the vintage botanical book, here.
I've had this large chippy paned window for a couple of years now,
 just waiting for something like this.




I didn't want to destroy the individual sheets
so fortunately the book was a spring binder.
All I had to do was lift them out and gently tape them in place.
This is how it looked when I purchased it:







Page after page of wonderful old yellowed paper with original dried
wildflowers and grasses intact.





I brought the completed window outside to photograph
along with my very old wicker chair
 and some wildflowers I gathered last weekend.

Queen Anne's Lace and Black Eyed Susans;
A beautiful bouquet just there for the picking.



My best guess is that this collection of wild flowers
was a school science project from the 40's.
The paper, tape, and typewriter set are indicators.
I found it for just a few dollars at one of my favorite flea markets.




I've never met a watering can that I didn't want to paint.
I love them a naturale,
but to me they just look happier with a paint color.


So now to more fun things...
