    Thank you for these ideas. The first one goes well with a family history project I’ve been working on. So many memories have been bubbling up from my childhood that I haven’t thought about for a long time as I sift through photos and ephemera I am the official family keeper of and ask questions of my older brothers. I can think of several flower related memories that would be perfect to add to the history. Lord knows, there won’t be any flower planting around here in northern Idaho very soon either. We are getting a fresh 3-6 inches of snow today!

      I love how old photographs are so powerful and evoke so many memories. I need to remember to print off some of the photos I take on my phone.

    Thank you Ali this is a great idea, I usually can find a theme but struggle with the “what to write” I have been given some lovely vintage lace enough for a book. I’ve found some golden books which I will use. With your altered golden book did you use the pages and make a new spine. I’ve ended up with the covers in two after removing the staples? Do enjoy your blog. Best wishes Merilyn

      Hi Merilyn – I just use the book as it is and collage over the pages leaving the spine and covers in tact. Glad you like the blog 🙂

    Thank you Ali back to the drawing board! I’ve got another golden book in tack. Regards Merilyn
