Blue & Yellow, Yellow & Blue

Just two pretty colors today. I found this book at a thrift store, and couldn't pass it up. Because the cover was so darned pretty, and because I really would like to try my hand at mosaic one of these days:
This is the front cover of an old vinyl photo album from the 70's. I had to take the pictures out - they were those weird old sleeves that can mess up your pictures, you know? But I'm just not sure what to do with it now. I just like the looks of the cover:
And then, here are two pages out of the cutest book - also from a thrift store - "My Slippers Are Red", by Charlotte Steiner:
Such sweet illustrations:
And then, this is just goofy - but I was preparing this post, and I needed a snack. So I went and scorched some microwave popcorn - then I tried again. Felt like grabbing a bowl to eat it out of - and realized that my snack was blue and yellow, too. (Honestly - I did not plan this ahead of time!) So, like any good blogger, I decided to take a picture of it so I could add it to this post. I'm just silly that way.
My sister had this popcorn when I was at her house. So the next time we went shopping, I got some. It's Jolly Time 100 Calorie Healthy Pop Kettle Corn. One bag is 1 point on Weight Watchers. I like it! When it isn't scorched.

Nothing is as gross as scorched popcorn. I love that Kettle Corn too. Tastes like more than a point doesn't it? Love T

I agree. That photo album cover is too cute. Can you make new pages for it and maybe make it a recipe book?

That is so precious! I love the little girl illustration. So charming. I love the popcorn photo!

Have a wonderful Saturday!

Dawn - that's a nice idea - and I thank you for the suggestion. I'm not very good at anything like that, but who knows?

Hey I was in FFA and their colors were blue and gold(kind of yellow) perhaps their emblem belongs in this post! And long live the Future Farmers of America (and blue and yellow of course!).
