I'm trying to reread my own books with the idea of donating the ones I don't want to keep. I must admit so far I've put exactly one in the donate box. I finished these two by Flora Thompson. Lark Rise to Candleford is semi-biographical and I enjoyed rereading it as much as I enjoyed it the first time.
Still Glides the stream is fiction but every bit as interesting as Lark Rise.
Sisters in Two Worlds is about 2 young women who grew up in a manor house in the Suffolk countryside. They married and left England to live in the backwoods of Upper Canada in the mid to late 1800's. Aside from recounting their struggles in their new homes the book contains over 200 colour and Black-and White images. One of the sisters, Catherine Parr Traill, wrote and illustrated books on Canadian plants, the first of its kind.
I've decided that every time I post I'll feature one or two tea cups from my collection.
These two cups are not fine china but I just love the patterns.I'd love to find blouses in these exact prints.
We had perfect weather for the first of September. The temperature was only 8C when I first checked but we reached 25 by the afternoon. (That would be about 45F and the high 77).
Thanks for stopping by, GM
