A set of six colors in half pint cans

Water color brushes will cost another

things can be painted, for that amount
of paint will last a long time.
Care of brushes must be considered.
"Each time they are used they must be
-washed in soap and water. Turpen
tine is good for cleaning them, but is
not enough, since in time it will stiffen
the bristles. Never allow paint to dry
in your brushes.
The thought of creating designs may

attempt too much at the start. Avoid
a naturalistic flower. A flower form
made of round dots from the end of the

beauty by means of decoration. Other
things will come to mind, such as
boxes and wooden bowls, wooden
knives and folks for salad sets, once
one starts to look for them.
Another use for painting is found in

For this purpose use the dull finish oil

Among the needlework gifts women
love to make for each oilier are num
bers of dainty trifles. For those of
more practical turn of mind gifts of
lasting qualities can bo fashioned.
These latter are especially exem
plified in the quaint "kitchenette"
aprons with caps to match. Sets -can
be found all stamped on unbleached
muslin, ready to work, at some of the
stores. But where these are not avail
able, a clever woman can make her
own designs with materials at hand.
One of the aprons had pockets of
'brown-eyed susans." The petals were
of yellow percale applujued about
brown centers. On the cap another
"susan" appeared. Still another had
blue tea cups for pockets. Another
apron had llower pots of blue and
white checked gingham. About the
pots, on the apron itself grew stiff
little round flowers nppliqued with
embroidered stems. On each cap for
each apron was a matching" design.
Among the dainty trifles to be given
each its measure of handwork, are
colored handkerchiefs. How very, very
sweet they look, two of them each, a
different color folded in a little box.
"One for blow, one for show" seems
to be the motto, for a plain one asso
ciates itself with a very frilly, filmy
.one side by side.
Most ot the plainer ones, some
times colored, sometimes white, have
drawn threads of colors for decora
tion. Tiny embroidered flowers are
often added in fascinating groups.
Frilly "hankies" are new this season
being edged with net. " Colored ones
are edged with white, and then again
with contrasting colors. Wee spots
of colored embroidery are added.
A pretty camisole of .wide lace in
sertion and ribbon can be quickly
made. Wide pale pink ribbon forms
the lower half with a narrow casing
for elastic; The upper half is inser
tion, with an edging of lace and a nar
row beading lor the ribbon draw

For, those who enjoy doing drawn
work theie are several varieties of
collars and cuffs, on which to bestow
one's dainty stitches, for the purpose
of making very acceptable gifts. One
set of collars and cuifs was hemstitch
ed with an inch hem of canary yellow
linen. Another was very simple and
smart with a single line of drawn
work inside the hem, and a narrow
ederintr of filet.
Embroidered dots make clever trim
mings for these tailored sets' and if
outlined with black, where a colored
material is u.sed. are very effective.
An unusual handbag designed for
use with a summer costume is one
about eight inches deep, crochted with
colored raffia. .The bag has a wired
top covered with raff ja and closes with
a loop fastening over an oval Knou.
A wide handle or strap with which to
carry it is also made of crocheted
raffia. One of these in dull petunia
color had raffia pansies for decoration
about iU top, ' Others had clusters of
matching flowers of various colors.
Combs and fans similarly decorated
are to be worn with party frocks this
winter and the making of them pre
sents an interesting problem to the
designer. Velvet petals may form the
entire fan while the comb is adorned
with balls to match. A round comb
for maladi of the bobbed hair is com
pletely covered with tiny rosebuds
whilst a knot of them decorates her
chiffon fan. While velvet flowers as a
corsage on a black gown can be re
peated in one's hair atop a high comb.
In fact when one really geta started
on the subject, there is no end to the
variety of delightful combinations of
colors and flowers to be thought out,
and so constructed as to make gifts of
The gift one makes surely expresses
love to the recipient. For without a
real affection, one could not possibly
desire to put in all those little stitches,
or careful touches of painting that the
made gift3 shows forth.
