Rusticating


It's lovely isn't it? It's the present inspiration picture for the Tuesday Trigger at the Moxie Fab World. The colours, the texture, the atmosphere. This struck an instant chord with me and I really wanted to do something with it.

The door is my favourite item in this picture - so my card took that direction too ...

Rustic Trigger

With one little red heart to capture the goodness of those beautiful cushions.

(Sorry if the angle of this one makes you seasick - it was a bit extreme :0)

And a final note for this entry - the lovely OLD book that my card is on, is a fascinating read. It contains everything from how to cook real food in the kitchen (for the healthy and the sick) and recipes for the cure of all sorts of illnesses. But my favourite thing is a newspaper clipping stuck inside with the following : "I am willing to risk my reputation as a public man if the worst case of small-pox cannot be effectually cured in three days simply by cream of tartar. This is the sure and never-failing remedy: 1 oz of tartar dissolved in a pint of boiling water, to be drunk when cold at short intervals. It can be taken at any time, and is a preventive as well as a curative. It is known to have cured in thousands of cases without a failure. It never leaves a mark, never causes blindness, and always prevents tedious lingering of the disease."

We don't know the gentleman's name. Do you think his reputation survived the never-failing cure?? :0)

Have a great day!
