A Sawrey Summer with Beatrix Potter


What's in this issue?

Take Great And Useful Pleasure the Decorating article

A close look at the settings portrayed in the artworks accompanying the stories of Beatrix Potter reveals very fine furnishings tastefully and conveniently arranged. Her respect for the historic and the carefully crafted, her sense of renewing countrified comfort, and her relaxed mixing of styles—all inspired by the Arts and Crafts Movement, continue to make both her illustrations and her National Trust homes compelling and instructive. Illustrations for this article include images by Beatrix Potter.

A Beatrix Potter Painting Book the Hearth article

Inspired by Peter Rabbit's Painting book, created by Beatrix Potter, Elspeth presents simple steps that help beginners play with paint while learning the rudiments of mixing colors, without having to capture form by translating three dimensions into two. Illustrations for this article include images by Beatrix Potter.

Next Time I Want To Give A Party the Kitchen article

Features recipes for Jeremy Fisher's Out-of-the-Larder Dinner, including Roasted Rosemary Bread, Sawrey Sweet and Sour Berry Dressing, Alderman Ptolemy Tortoise Salad, Timothy Baker's Basic Bread, Mr. Brown Owl's Nut and Tomato Tart, Ribby's Hearty Party Tea, Ribby's Toothsome Savory Pie, Good Bunny Supper Cake, Timmy Willie's Pea Soup, and Mrs. Tittlemouse's Honey-dew Cup. Illustrations for this article include images by Beatrix Potter.

I Have A Little Garden the Garden article

Beatrix Potter's love of the gardens she explored influenced her own gardens. Based upon Beatrix Potter's design for The Game of Peter Rabbit (a board game), Elspeth provides a garden design (in watercolor) that suggests ways to create the potager gardens at Gwaynynog and Fawe Park. Includes a list of flowers from her stories, as well as a list of the flowers at Hill Top Farm. Illustrations for this article include images by Beatrix Potter.

Mrs. Rabbit's Pot Rack the Workshop article

A ceiling-mounted pot rack made of alder provides storage for pots and pans, dried herbs, and other paraphernalia. Its hand-finished wood and design provide a fine focal point. Illustrations for this article include images by Beatrix Potter.

Beatrix Potter the Bookshelf article

Biographical sketch of Beatrix Potter. Illustrations for this article include artwork by Beatrix Potter.

Living Richly Without Being Rich the Attic article

Suggestions for accenting interiors with the craftsmanship and charm of vignette's from the art of Beatrix Potter. Illustrations for this article include images by Beatrix Potter.

[untitled] the Veranda article

Subscriber reminiscences of childhood and the tales of Beatrix Potter. Illustrations for this article include images by Beatrix Potter.

A Ferret In The Burrower's Guild the Writer's Garret article

Seymore describes the setting and the work he enjoyed while employed in the Map Room of the burrower's guild of the lytfolc colony at Lanham Plantation.

Tying up loose ends

By Al R. Young
The last while has left us a little frazzled and frayed at our too-busy fringes, and consequently article-bereft, so we thought today to be an ideal time to smooth ourselves out, and tie up some needful loose ends.  First and foremost, we wanted to acknowledge these kind notes from subscribers from upstate New York, the East Midlands in England, America's Deep South and the upper Pacific Coast:  (Thanks so much, Flo, Rowena, Susana, and Mary Anne!)

"To all at The Studio, I just want to say I was talking to my best friend a few days ago and she had tried Nancy's recipe for "Wheaten Griddle Bread," and as soon as I could this afternoon, I made the recipe... Read more »

More from Mr. Jeremy Fisher's larder

By Al R. Young There may not always be time to create a full Jeremy Fisher "Roasted Rosemary Grasshopper" presentation-loaf prior to a Miss Potter-style picnic or party; but using the same dough (pages 12-13 of Summering in Sawrey with Beatrix Potter) you can still create sandwiches--not from butterflies like Jeremy's--but from "Hopper Heads" simply by following the instructions below, allowing to cool completely, then adding your favorite sandwich fillings.  They may be the only truly welcome insect near the Lily-Pond!
