Old flower books

I love the ones from the late 60's early 70's.

like this one from Joyce, people don't get named Joyce anymore do they?

Maybe it will make a comeback.

Joyce has a wonderful eye for colour and displays her vases on the staircase.

There is a very small picture of her in the back of the book, sitting at a writing desk all prim.

I like to think that maybe she got a little drunk on gin in preparation for her close up and had an affair with the photographer.

also this is a new tablecloth. It's vintage darling.

Hilarious ! Every girl needs a few pink gins before a closeup.

I have an Aunty Joyce and I really cant see her with a gin or a photographer but she could be a dark horse of course! xx
