When I'm not crocheting I like to sit with a nice cup of tea and a good book and as I just happen to have a violet cup and saucer and its February, what else to use! I especially like old books, there is such a charm about them. This one here is from 1919. I start to wonder who had held this book before, what were they like, where they lived ... sort of dreamy, no?
February's flower is the Violet.
