Marmalade Collection


Back when I was at college I was in a short-lived girl band called 'Marmalade'.  It's too bad it was short-lived, but the rest of our lives were before us and we all left town, ending up in various cities across the country.  Which is why this recent collection that I've received is so lovely.  Little jam jars, mostly marmalade with plaid tops and sweet old labels.  The jars themselves were used and saved by 2 artists, a mother and daughter, who have passed away (at 93 and 106...).  Somehow I've 'inherited' their art supplies and am taking some time to go through everything, finding many lovely things along the way!
Hope you are having a great week, I'll be back!

Aww Carolyn;) I miss Marmalade too! I guess 3 of us are now in the Lower Mainland, but we'd still be missing Dori. Perhaps we'll have a reunion sometime and invite you along! Ahh good times! Hope you are feeling well, dear friend!
