Hereby presenting an excerpt from Upland Pastures (1904) by Adeline Knapp. It tells a story of today’s Free Friday Vintage Coloring Page which is the title page design.

“The things of Nature grow sophisticated as the season advances. In the early springtime they are frank and
confiding, and willingly tell the secrets of their growth to him who asks. They have time, in these first beginnings of things, for friendly sociability: to show their tiny roots and bulbs, and to let us study the delicate, gracious unfoldings of leaf and bud and blossom.”

Hereby presenting an excerpt from an article from the May issue of Keramic Studio: A Monthly Magazine for the Potter and Decorator (1918) by designer Henrietta Barclay Paist. It tells the story of today’s Free Friday Vintage Coloring Page, which is one of her bowl designs.

“This month I have chosen the ‘modest violet,’ which shies and dips with graceful curves behind its cool green leaves. The violet always suggests the debutante, shy, demure, retreating but always inviting. It vies with the wild rose in popularity, and with many, no doubt, takes first place.”
