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.

My sweet Emma P who loves the snow!
