Thanks to a sweet blog friend, I found a website that sells old books, ABE Books. Books that might be very special to someone but they are no longer in print. It was here that I found two more Gladys Taber books about Stillmeadow Farm.
Speaking of old books, this one arrived smelling a bit musty and my allergies were protesting as I opened this book so I put a laundry softener sheet inside it and left it to sit in the laundry room for several days. This got rid of some of the "smell" but not completely so I pulled out my Young Living Essential Oils and chose to use some Purification on it. I dabbed a bit of the oil at the top of about twelve pages and left it to sit one day. Voila! Purification did the job and now I can read my book without a runny nose and watery eyes. So essential oils have many uses!!
Ms Tudor was a very unique personality. She loved to dress in clothes from the 19th century and she lived very simply in her New England home. I have several books that were illustrated by Tasha Tudor and I treasure them all.
Fall is a good time to sit down with the hot beverage of your choice and travel back to a simpler time. These books are perfect for just such an excursion.
