I love this picture of all the neighborhood gathering to see who was getting a new refrigerator. We've lost a lot of this neighborly nosiness, for both good and bad. People are just too busy to pay much attention to what goes on around them. I'm sure many of us know more about some Hollywood star than we do our very own next-door neighbor.
I used "Buttercup" and "Violet" to paint these pages. When you use two complementary colors like these, you will create lovely neutrals where they mix together. You can get nearly infinite variations, depending on the proportions of each color as they blend. Hence, the lovely tans and terra cottas scattered across the spread.
