Yesterday was one of those days at the Op Shop where the finds were just that little bit magical. Nine rolls of vintage cottons, all in the most beautiful shades of blues, greens, and grays, my favourite colours. When I got home and put them down they fell into a natural order of colour not dissimilar to a colour chart. From Sylko and J & P Coats, all made in either Great Britain or Australia, presented on wooden or cardboard spools, and some not even used. Then a cookbook from 1965, Simple German Cookery “compiled by Edna Beilenson, and with decorations by Ruth McCrea”, which has the most stunning illustrations and some really fantastic, and surprisingly modern, recipes. This sort of thing just lifts my heart.
