Sundeck chairs or vintage printables?

plan a + plan b for the weekend |


This weekend requires a plan A and a plan B. There's supposed to be rain and sun, grey and blue skies.


Plan A for sun and a blue sky includes sundeck chairs and summer drinks.


And plan B for rain and a grey sky includes the exploration of a website I recently discoverd via the jealous curator on sf girl by bay : vintage printable. Watch out, it's a jaw-dropper. Vintage printable is run by a science geek whose hobby it is to curate out-of-copyright scientific illustrations and it's a heaven for anyone who loves vintage illustrations. And all prints are available for download - botanical illustrations, educational charts, art prints and so on - it's endless and I've just seen a fraction of it yet.


I hope it will rain!

    Hahahaha. You're funny!

    It's actually sunny in London. yay! Off to the Farmers Market.
    Here is what I would wish for. Plan A during the day and Plan B in the evening. I don't believe in compromise, unless I absolutely have to:-)))

    Hope you're having a nice weekend, whichever one it is!

    Like the forecast said - we're having a bit of everything this weekend, and I'm having a bit of everything, too! Glad you're finally having some sunshine in London, ladies. You deserve it!

    Ohhh very tempting site. I'm in need of something a bit custom made, perhaps this might be the place for me! Thanks Lena!

    You're welcome, Mel! I'm sure some small treasures can be found there... I'll definitely print out some of them for my thrifted frames.

    I hope you ended up having a bit of both. Thanks for sharing the vintage print site, I actually went to a closing down sale of the framers the other day and got a whole lot of frames for 50% off. My motto was buy now think later, now I have somewhere to look for pictures I can print. Your post is well timed. Thank You xD
