Picking Flowers

I’ve been picking flowers

lately in the form of books

and flatware~

The Burgess Flower Book For Children

by Thornton W. Burgess, published 1923

I couldn’t resist picking a few spoons & forks I found blooming from a dealer who was closing shop, along with a few vintage flower books.

 A couple of pieces were unidentified,

but I was more interested in the

flower variety than the flatware pattern,

and another way to enjoy flowers at the table :)

The fork is Crosby silverplate or possibly, Great Mullein :)

“Violet”~ Simeon L & George H Rogers Co. A1


The Nature Library~ Garden Flowers and Wild Flowers,

Robert M. McCurdy

The Wild Flowers volume came with

a bonus~ a few flowers picked and

pressed~ tucked between the pages :)

than diamonds on my neck.”
