There is a grandeur to the brand-spanking-new; but there is also a luxury to the pleasingly aged. Beyond the superior materials that an antique might be made of, there is a relaxing freedom that arrives with an out-of-the-box floor model, a demo car, or scratch-and-dent furnishings that do not exude the need to be breathlessly protected from daily use.
We ventured to take on the traditional in new ways when it comes to recreating some of the treats mentioned throughout the pages of An Old Fashioned Girl. We also offer some ideas and methods for using culinary tools that can mimic the implements used by Polly's skilled friends. The techniques are designed to be done quickly while still fashioning an artistic flavor. Recipes include: Squash and Sage Johnnycake, Cheese-and-Crackers, Cornmeal Cheese-and-Crackers, Plummy Engraver's Loaves, Plummy Buns, Festive Tea Cake, Apple Ginger Preserves.
To us, pianos are giant, sonorous, sleek black symbols of great wealth (and a second mortgage) or smaller uprights and portable digital devices that suffice as a substitute if the grand variety is unattainable. To Polly, a grand piano was a similar statement of status, but black was a rare finish and the carving of the wood was a better-crafted presentation than its sound.
Polly decided to set herself right by doing some little kindness to somebody and therefore took sprays of daphne to Fanny. This installment of the Garden offers some history about the flower and some pointers about its care because daphne isn't the easiest plant to keep alive, whether indoors or out.
We created the following signs, to be hung on door handles, that can help with any occasion from online virtual meetings to podcasting to quiet time during artist's-block or to those moments when we are just turning the corner toward sleep, and a thoughtful pause in family action would be particularly beneficial.
