Holiday Gift Guide 2019 05: Fall Leaves In California Shower Curtain And More

Holiday Gift Guide 2019 05: Fall Leaves In California Shower Curtain And More

The striking contrast between the bright yellow leaves and the black of the tree limbs was begging to be photographed and then turned into a watercolor. The result is almost abstract and can be appreciated in many ways. I always find myself stopping to take, what seems like, the oddest pictures. My wife often wonders what I have seen that stopped me in my tracks. I like finding details within a seemingly common scene and teasing out the art to be found there.

Holiday Gift Guide 2019 04: Red Poppies Vintage Victorian Wallpaper Socks

Holiday Gift Guide 2019 04: Red Poppies Vintage Victorian Wallpaper Socks

This photo was taken at the Center for Colorado Women’s History at the Byers-Evans House Museum. This is an amazing house with an amazing family history. I highly recommend visiting if you get a chance. This is a reproduction of the original wallpaper in one of the women’s bedrooms and it caught my eye immediately. The art is wonderful and the pattern lends itself to many products. Here I highlight the socks as they are a new product and make great use of the repeating pattern of the wallpaper.

Another great vintage print I found. My interest in gardening leads me to botanical prints like this. They are truly artwork no matter if their purpose was educational or designed to sell plants or seeds. All these prints deserve new life as artwork in their own right.

Holiday Gift Guide 2019 01: Vintage Yellowstone Hoodie

I love the vintage look of this artwork. There are so many great graphics works that came out of the heyday of US National Parks. This would be great to wear on the trail or comfortably curled up in front of a fire at home.

INTRODUCTION

Vacation time brings to many the desire for out-door life, as a refreshment for mind and body. There seems to be a strain of wild blood in the most of us, that impels us to leave the haunts of man, occasionally, and getting out into the wildwood, to live close to nature for awhile. The expense of summer hotels and camps deters many, and the cost of hiring professional guides for those who wish to get rid of the formalities of such resorts and do not know how to care for themselves, prevents others.

There are many who like to leave their work for a few weeks and go to the woods or lake- side. They have neither the time nor the in- clination to adopt the life of the professional trapper who lives by the chase and sleeps on the soft side of a slab. They want rest; they wish for pleasure; they require three square meals a day, and they want the food well cooked, not too full of ashes, and not too different from that to which they have been accustomed for the other forty-nine or fifty weeks of the year. To this class, the business man, the clerk, the mechanic, to every one who wishes to camp out and does not know how to do it and still keep his self-re- spect, this book is addressed.
