Vol. 16 No. 6 of The Storybook Home Journal

Autumn at Haworth Parsonage

What's in this issue?

But there was taste everywhere the Decorating article

To be transported, to be involved, to share someone's dreams when entering a home are the elements that lead to magical spaces, and the writings of the Brontë sisters—particularly Charlotte's—provide some instruction in two areas that create homes full of good taste, individuality and charm. The first is a delight in details, the second is the ability to pull together collections into a tasteful whole.  These are presented and discussed under the following headings: Fascination in Footprints, Well Arranged, Learn about what you have and what you love, Edit along those lines, and Live your own life.

Drawing suits me best the Hearth article

This article builds on basic drawing techniques presented in “A Notion Of Drawing” in the Northanger Abbey issue of The Storybook Home Journal (Vol. 14 No. 2) and “A Real Feeling For Line” in The Red House issue of The Storybook Home Journal (Vol. 16 No. 4).  Activities and exercises include: Getting Outfitted, Schoolroom Line Sampler, Miss Mathilda's Weighted-Line, Miss Murray's Rose Wreath, Haworth Value Scale, Catherine Earnshaw's Free Sketch, Autumn Cross-Contour Drawing, Helen Graham Line Sampler Rosette, and Wildfell Hall Tonal.

Her old Belgian modes the Kitchen article

While Charlotte could only think hard, and chew the end of her stylus to recapture the breakfasts, dinners, teas and suppers she relished in Brussels, we can share a portion of them with you here as we attempt to recreate some of the "old Belgian modes" of cookery suggested by her novels—occasionally, accenting them with the "English fashion" of a pleasing Yorkshire lilt.  Recipes include: Hortense's Soup of Pureed Greens, Grand-mère's Fruit Pate Tart, Sweet Crust (Pate Sucre), Cramique, Maigre-day Puree, Savoury Fieldhead Chicken, Pear, and Scallion & Walnut Tart.

He understands garden weel the Garden article

In the spirit of the know-how and traditions of horticultural propagation, implied in the pages of the Brontë novels, here are some time-honored methods for propagating species, appropriate to Haworth, that any beginner can try.

Artistical lumber the Workshop article

Illustrations tell most of the story of how to make this particular artist palette.  The commentary describes what is not shown in the photographs: Design considerations that can be used to define the shape and other physical characteristics of any palette.

The City of the Moon the Writer's Garret article

Seymore describes the first day of his visit to Deeping Marr, his impressions of the ruins, and his thoughts about the insecurity and conceit with which the past is often viewed:  Standing, today, in spaces in which I have been profoundly moved by the soul and skills of artists long departed, it has been impressed upon my understanding that the finely wrought networks of ornamentation, the poetry of colors, textures, and proportion do not arise from any intellectual or emotional inferiorities or insensibilities, but are as powerful in their conception, proportion, and presentation as anything of which we are capable.
