Love of Books and Vintage

Sorting and cleaning can have its benefits, other than the obvious. Look at this wonderful, old, honey colored volume I found in the deep recesses of my old house! It motivated me to create some honey bee tags with pretty yellow ribbons...and to read more about bees.

I've developed a respect and admiration for bees since loving the novel,
"The Secret Life of Bees".

I love bees, they are so fun! Well, not when they buzz around my head outside, but I love prints and such of them... too cool! What a find!

I totally RESPECT bees! I have known their sting, I've had droids crawl on me, I've seen their honeycomb, and I need them in my garden to pollinate! They are cool little creatures!

Now... the yellow-jackets that hang around here are another story...

Your Bee tags are GREAT!

just adorable bee tags!
We enjoyed the movie very much.
not one knows why BEES are
dissapearing, Scientists are alarmed,because we need them to pollinate the flowers to keep
the food chain alive!
Can you imagine life without Honey?
thanks ♥K♥ for finding this awesome book!
