Through no fault of my own…

Isn’t this a beautiful book cover? This is the (true) diary of a year in the life of Coco Irvine, written by the daughter of a lumber baron. The diary documents her life on fashionable Summit Avenue in St. Paul, MN during the Jazz Age, in 1926-1927. This house now serves as the Minnesota Governor’s Mansion.

I was captivated by the colors on the cover, and think it would make a great color palette in beads.

It could use some tweaking, but I see possibilities!
