The Joy of Geraniums

Which would you rather see: geraniums or the snow in the background? I'm pretty sure I know the answer, at least I know what mine is!
I have developed a 'thing' for book covers,  old books, album covers, chocolate....and on and on.
I bought this book for the cover, it was copyrighted first in 1946 and lastly in 1965. I think it was 50 cents. 

When I looked through it I found an unexpected, wonderful surprise: these fabulous prints, suitable for framing. 

  There were also a couple of newspaper clippings inside. 
 I haven't read the clippings yet.
 Aren't these gorgeous pictures???
 I MIGHT just frame them.
The problem is that some of them are double sided....what to do.

Spring IS in the air, the sun is getting higher and it's WARM, the snow is SLOWLY melting. I'm getting cabin fever and want desperately to get outside!!! This is my way of sharing a little bit of spring with you. 
Have a great weekend!!!!


  1. Try to get a copy of the prints . Then you can frame all of them. I love geraniums. Hope you have agreat weekend, xoxo,Susie

  2. I love geraniums too? I have quite a few in the greenhouse and bring a few into the house all through the year.. That book looks so interesting. X

  3. Put me in a used book store and I might not surface for weeks :) Love the pictures on your wonderful find.

  4. That is the same problem with DSP. I never know which side to use. You can use one side for a while and then switch to the other side. At least when you frame them you don't have to glue them down.
