Went to the Vintage Market at the Fairgrounds today with my oldest friend. You could say we have become vintage together. There was a lot to see. I definitely liked the things that were actually old the best. But lots of good colors - chartreuse, pale blue, neutrals, browns- and good imagery - geometric metalwork, wooden fretwork, birdhouses, windmills, arrows. My favorite piece was a cabinet of seeds. I remember taking a field trip to Shell Ross in Pine Bluff, Arkansas, in kindergarten and seeing the cabinets of seeds. Something wonderful about trying to organize the wild. So much potential and promise in those little pods. Said oldest friend had a blog for a while called "Cabinet of Seeds." She's a clever one. We are both perusing what seeds we are going to sew as we approach 40. The not knowing, selecting, and deciding is easier when you have someone who has known you since you were a seed still standing beside you.
