I made my first interlocking pattern design in order to enter this week’s beetle-themed contest on Spoonflower.com. If you have a moment, I’d really appreciate it if you would take the time to vote for my work here! I could really use those Spoondollars for making products this upcoming holiday season. Thanks!
So lovely Janna!!!
The Floral Keepsake for 1850 features 46 plates of colored engravings. Each flower is its own chapter and features flower lore, practical planting knowledge, and botanical description. The keepsake also includes several poems and an index of the flowers and their associated meaning. The editor, John Keese, was both an amateur poet and bookseller. I can only imagine that his love for the content and the object would have inspired him to work on this project.
