A Victorian Flower Dictionary: The Language of Flowers Companion
Mandy Kirkby“A flower is not a flower alone; a thousand thoughts invest it.” Daffodils signal new beginnings, daisies innocence. Lilacs mean the first emotions of love, periwinkles tender recollection. Early Victorians used flowers as a way to express their feelings—love or grief, jealousy or devotion. Now, modern-day romantics are enjoying a resurgence of this bygone custom, and this book will share the historical, literary, and cultural significance of flowers with a whole new generation. With lavish illustrations, a dual dictionary of flora and meanings, and suggestions for creating expressive arrangements, this keepsake is the perfect compendium for everyone who has ever given or received a bouquet.
Funeral Service & Flower Cars Photo Archive

With the advent of the automobile funeral, flowers were transported to the church or cemetery in big touring cars with their tops let down. But in the1930s an entirely new kind of funeral vehicle -- the Flower Car -- blossomed in America. Flower cars were built on all makes of chassis, from luxury Packards, Cadillacs, LaSalles and Buicks to Pontiacs and Chevy El Caminos. The only book ever dedicated to these unique professional cars documents the evolution of the flower car from the 1930s to the long, low coupes de fleur still being built today. A bonus feature includes a section on the other workhorse of the funeral home fleet, the Service Car, which transported the deceased from home or hospital to the funeral parlor and hauled caskets and other funeral service paraphernalia to the church or cemetery.

During an interview Barbara shared her motivation for writing Pricing Without Fear: Pricing without fear should be second nature, but it is not. What I have found is that of all the concerns sewing professionals have, pricing seems to be number one. My motivation for writing this book was to reassure sewing professionals that they can have a healthy business, and not be afraid to price for profit. When I penned my first book, The "Business" Of Sewing, I covered the basic pricing methods, and gave illustrations. I briefly addressed overcoming doubt, fear and procrastination, which I later devoted an entire book to. Once I became more aware of how many people suffered from the fear of pricing, I recorded an audio entitled, Take The Fear Out Of Pricing, complete with exercises and worksheets. However, I wanted a tool that addressed pricing in more detail. One that any sewing professional could use no matter what field of specialty, thus came Pricing Without Fear. Sykes has several new books: The "Business" Of Sewing Vol. 1 The "Business" Of Sewing Vol.2 Do You Sew For Profit (A Guide For Wholesale, Retail and Consignment) Marketing Your Sewing Business She has also designed the following forms specifically for sewing professionals: Forms On Computer Disc Home Decor - Interior Design Forms Marketing Forms CD Marketing Graphics FormsDeluxe Marketing Forms Barbara Wright Sykes continues to offer solid advice for those who want to sew for profit!
