My brain is feeling a tad fatigued so these are pretty literal depictions of this week’s theme. Still, I hope you like them. Just a little reminder that if you click on them to enlarge they look sooooo much better!
This is my grandmother Trippe’s cookbook. It contains her handwritten recipes. It also has favorite ones she clipped from the newspaper and those that friends sent her. It is zealously guarded as important family business. To give you a little idea of its age, my grandmother was born in 1886. She died in 1978 just shy of her 92nd birthday.
I like the textures here: the tattered composition book on top of the well-worn wooden cutting board.
Moving on, I notice that several of my images this week are garden themed. Perhaps I am tiring of winter after all.
A wonderful olive jar in the garden at Virginia House here in Richmond.
The lovely garden maiden in my secret garden.
This sleeping faun is in another part of the garden. She dreams amidst fallen camellia blossoms.
The next one is for my Christmas people.
Yes, you have seen this guy already this week but he cheers me so immensely that I had to bring him back. He might actually have been perfect for the Juxtaposition theme of last week, positioned as he is in front of that harbinger of spring – the daffodil.
And finally, here is an object of my affection:
My sweet Emma P who loves the snow!
Be sure to check out others’ interpretations of this week’s theme here.
I also posted an entry on my Garden Reverie blog if you have any interest in popping over to it.
Thanks for stopping by!

Wow, what a variety of lovely objects, and most with an ancient feel them……apart from your gorgeous fluffy dog, she’s just too cute 🙂
Thank you! I think she’s the bees knees myself. And, you noticed one of my not very well hidden secrets – I love old things. Thanks so much for visiting, Cackie
I especially love the composition book photo. Really great. 🙂
Thanks very much. It has so much sentimental value that I can’t be very objective about it. It’s nice that someone else likes it, too. Thanks for coming back by and keep on drawing your wonderful things, Cackie
Oh, Emma P!! She is adorable! And the rest, of course are beautiful, I wish I had those in my garden. So wonderful you have your gran’s recipes.
Brenda, you cheer me up as always! Thanks so much, C
Wonderful choices but I really love your grandmother’s cookbook best. First it stirred tons of memories of the little black notebook tests in grade and high school. And second of course, I love the nostalgia of family recipes. Thanks for sharing!
Thank YOU, Tina, for stopping by to visit and taking the time to share your thoughts. I apreciate it so much, Cackie. And, yes, it gives me the shivers a bit to think about those notebooks in school – not as bad as blue books, though!
Objects that warms the heart and bring signs of Spring closer. Wonderful post!
Thank you very much for your nice comment! And thanks for taking the time to visit me. Best to you, Cackie
