Not by Bread Alone

I love bread.  Yes, sadly, even white bread.  You'd think that eating something nearly every day from the ages of 5-17 would make one grow tired of it, but not in my case.  There is something so comforting about eating a piece of white bread with margarine - it's probably purely nostalgic for me but I do love the taste!

When did white bread start to get such a bad rap?  I grew up in the Seventies and a peanut butter & jelly sandwich was always described as "wholesome" and something moms could feel good about giving their kids.  Now the way people talk, you'd think white bread is the devil.  Back in the day, though, before all the "studies" were done, parents served their kids bread without a second thought.  And we were fine. It is interesting that no one seemed to have gluten or peanut allergies then, either.

I love collecting bread items, just because the product is so ubiquitous and it seems to be one of the "happier" items advertised.  One of my favorite items is the Sunbeam girl label (I added the numbers myself) - it's so colorful and cheery!  :D  I just got the Wonder Bread notepad the other day and I love it as well.

Here are some art cards I've done using bread as my muse - it's a fun subject!
