To Remind Him Of Her the Looking Glass article

Quilting has been a rite of passage, a companionable pastime, and a necessary thrift for hundreds of years. Though the quilt culture of Avonlea was probably beginning to wane by the time Anne left Green Gables (thanks to the advent of machine-made en masse), quilting was still a treasured trust to be passed on to the rising generation by a notable housewife and seamstress like Mrs. Lynde.

Living Richly Without Being Rich the Attic article

A Sanctuary In The Treetops the Writer's Garret article

Seymore Wainscott describes The Gable, where he and his young bride lived for a short time in the old Mill at Lanham Plantation. The Gable was the home where he and Bryhta began the tradition of reading together as a family, and where they defined the part that leisure would play in their lives: How we define leisure is one of the most important influences on the nature of any home. This letter also takes the reader along for the kind of rooftop picnics Seymore and Bryhta enjoyed at the Mill, and talks about the great power of trust, the influence of Bryhta's love of truth, as well as the importance of her gifts as a culinary genius.
