I've snapped one photo from the inside of each book - mmmm, blue (sorry, Mrs Yappy Dog!).
This one was a gift from my mum, two Christmases ago. What a wonderful book it is. Two things you should know: It has inspired its own Flickr group. And Hen from HenHouse is really into it at the moment.
Next up is one I bought in Oxfam Books, Stockbridge, during our February visit to Edinburgh. This one is really good, too.I read through the whole book when I bought it, but had to get the Spring pages out the other day for further inspiration. Aren't they wonderful?
And finally: the one that started it all, one of Jane Cumberbatch's later books, about garden style. I bought it for Ben in a bargain bookshop years ago, but I think I've been the one who's read it most!Really an excellent source for simple but inspired garden design and decoration.I know what I'd REALLY like to add to the set when it comes out, although I'll wait for it second hand, and that's Selina Lake's Romantic Style.
The publishers of this super bunch of books are Ryland Peters & Small, and I should think that anything they publish would be worth a look. Do you have any of their books?
Actually, that's not the question I mentioned in my title. That question is about an idea I've had, which MummyMad might be interested in, having read her Lent Post, but I wonder if there are any others interested? I thought of doing a series, from next Sunday up until Easter, about telling the Holy Week stories of Jesus to children. I have some good pictures, some craft ideas and quite a lot of story-telling experience as a mum, teacher and Sunday School teacher. I'd enjoy it, but would anyone else? Please let me know what you think. Thank you!
