The book has page after page filled with individual patterns grouped together by common subject. The trend towards lazy days during the 1800, parasols and high button boots, tea service and time at the boardwalk or the beach are beautifully imagined. The sections are  A Touch of Nostalgia, Chocolate, Tea, Coffee, Fabulous Journeys, and Fashion. Most of the designs are small, which are perfect for crafters to use in a myriad of ways.
