My tray table was in need of a new vignette and I had no idea what to do. Couple trips to a thrift store did the job. I actually can't believe that I found this Vintage Twig Picnic Basket and this antique sugar mold today. My ironstone casserole is in need of a hydrogen peroxide bath but I know that is exactly the place that should stay.
Featured: Chinese bottle with twist-on cap. My grandmother, always an elegant woman, used to have her perfume custom-made in Juarez, before the city descended to chaos. I feel nostalgia for simpler times when folks were folks and these made the things they needed by hand or bartered with their neighbors. Zoom in to see exquisite details and swipe left to see it with the cap off 💕

This is where the plant-dye process starts. You're in a field with a beautiful woven basket. The sky is a dappled gray, the grass looks green enough to eat, and your hair is full and beautiful and the envy of the county. Oh, wait. That's just if you're my love @sleightholmfolk here. If you're me, you're down the ditch from where you stopped your car on the side of the road, plastic shopping bag from the floorboard flapping in the breeze while you try to keep your grip, itchy stuff jumping into your cowgirl boots, your fingers stained because no one told you to wear gloves when braking for black walnuts (the hulls make a beautiful golden-brown dye/ink), your hair sticking to the sweat on your neck. But you know what? I'd take it either way. And not just for the resulting dyed yarns and fabrics.
When you buy plant-dyed items, you become part of days like this, and of the roadside searches, too. When you make plant dyes, you get to share days like this with others. And Lord knows I love a good show-and-tell.
