GoRgeOuS ViNtaGe P*A*N*S*I*E*S...
Bags of fertilizer, dirt, mulch etc. are piling up in Hardware Stores & Garden Centers... The TV ads show *~Blooming Flowers~*... BUT HERE IN WISCONSIN ON APRIL 10th - the ground is STILL FROZEN & it's been pouring buckets for the last 2 days ~ and will continue through Friday - along with 34 degree temperatures... OMG!*!*!
For Me, the REAL Sign that S*P*R*I*N*G T*I*M*E
is in full swing are Pansy Sightings - OUTDOORS...
But for Now ~ I'm settling for these ViNtaGe Paper Ones!!!
I netted this AmAziNg
ViNtaGe Pansy Calendar on a recent buying trip...
Tattered & Frayed - Just the way I like it!*!*!
The darling petals open to reveal
For an **1898** Calendar
the Colors are still quite vibrant...
I need to start "crunching" for this
upcoming weekend's show in Illinois...
I'm sooooo behind with preparations due to all my recent buying trips!!! At least you know I'll have lots of FRESH SHABBY F*I*N*D*S for you to hunt through!*!*!
