Webers Candy Box

Webers Candy Box

Just a little vision from the past.
Here's a box from Webers when it was in downtown Milwaukee.

A look inside the store from Wisconsin Avenue.

Beaux Arts Classicism

Kletting's design for the Salt Palace was exactly that.
He must have loved to bring some of the skill he learned while working in Paris
to Salt Lake City.

Time of Anxiety

Time of Anxiety

For a year now I have found it imperative to daily readjust my attitude.
My wish is to continue my life in a positive light.
Forces outside myself fight me for the wish.

I sometimes find solace in the writing of others to help my path.
This, from Maya Angelou is my mantra for the day.

When someone else is having a bad day or feeling down, connect to the light within you and share your prismatic colorful personality with them. Do your best to brighten their day, and for heaven’s sake at the very least, do not make their day worse.

Lovely Images

Lovely Images

I have a love of vintage autograph books.
The hand writing is precise and beautiful.
Some writers add fantastic drawings.
And then there are the stickers.

This one is from my great-great aunt's autograph/scrapbook.

The sticker opens up and each layer has "sayings" on the back of a floral display.
Although the sticker is now pasted in her book,
the fabric at the top once allowed you to pull it and the
layers would open for viewing under the layers of flowers.
Here is each layer for you to see the sentiments.
