I connect a lot of memories with smells. A new box of crayons when you first crack open the flip top is one of my favorites. Crayons represent endless possibilities for art and expression. I still enjoy coloring in a coloring book or on a piece of scrap paper. Is it ok if I never outgrow that love? I hope so!!
And at this back to school time I am always reminded of that vivid memory and smell. That was what I was thinking of when I did the photo shoot shown here.

This photo is all about bright cheery colors and the love of coloring.
Grab some crayons -whether they are fresh and full of that new box aroma or old and broken in a coffee can- and settle in for some coloring time before the back to school morning routine is here to stay for another year.

Your photo is great and was perfect for my treasury. I'm so glad you liked it. Thanks for featuring me in your blog!

I'm 53 years young and still get excited over a new box of Crayolas!!! If you ever have the chance to visit the Crayola Factory in Easton, PA...go and enjoy reliving your childhood!!!

love it! It is a great photo, and I can see how it inspired Jessica to base her treasury on it. Congrats to both of you! Enjoy your coloring!

Oh Amy crayons and play-doh smells, I adore. When it was back to school and I got my new box of 64 I always opened them and smelled them. And yes, I will proudly say I LOVE TO STILL COLOR!!! I have my own stash of books tucked away and when I'm
bored once in awhile I pull them out! Sadly, none vintage though. Actually now that I think of it my grandson snatched my crayons. So as I buy some pens for my back to school don't tell but I'm gonna get a 64 to just sit on my desk at home,just in case the urge strikes!! Love,Lori
