They are similar in that they both prefer vintage over new and cottage over modern.
Someday I may decide to merge the two little blogs, but for now they're still two rather than one.
My busy shop life may push me into it sooner than later.
At any rate blooming|cottage|vintage and the name Calico Petals remains in tact. Honestly, I love the name and it really does represent itself well.
When I ponder those thoughts along comes childhood memories of county fairs and horse shows, bicycle built for two, morning walks to the swimming pool and calico printed blouses hanging in my closet.
I love the prints in the banner above. I faded them some in photo shop after picking out some of my favorites.
The fabric prints came from this book. I can think of endless idees for the prints. One of which certainly includes wrapping soap!
We made this yummy dish for dinner. If you're like me and love summer zucchini, then you'll love this lasagna. We toasted garlic bread and had peach tea. I'm still in awe over the lasagna.
I hope you're having a great start to the summer.
It comes and it goes so fast.
Don't forget to stop and smell the blooms!
