Did I read that right, you may be asking?
Coca-Cola and flowers?
What do those two have in common?
Well, it all started when I found the book below at a thrift store. Written by Laura Lee Burroughs and published by the Coca-Cola Company in 1941, "Flower Arranging, A Fascinating Hobby". I was intrigued.....
Especially with lovely photos of arrangements like this inside:
And afterward, I came across this advertisement in one of my old magazines. "Get this beautiful book", the ad coaxes - but wait, this is for Volume 1! Oh, why can't I find one that advertises the book that I found?
Ask, and you shall receive, right? I found one! For the very book that I have!
Enjoy your ice-cold Coca-Cola, and create some lovely flower arrangements to decorate your home, so that you can enjoy them together! Why not?
I was getting everything together after I had the idea for this post, and then, what do you suppose I found? You guessed it: another ad, for Volume 3 this time!
Now I have something else to search for, don't I?
Yes. of course I do - Volumes 1 and 3.
In the meantime, I think I'll relax - with a Caffeine Free Diet Coke.
Ahh, The Pause That Refreshes.
