Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady - February

In 1906 Edith Holden wrote in her diary on the first of February:  Dull day with slight drizzle of rain in the morning but bright and mild in the afternoon.  The month was much like ours....just about all kinds of weather--rain, snow, wind, sunshine, thaw, and then more snow and cold.

View Outside My Window - February

Good morning!  I almost forgot about doing this month's View Outside My Window post!  I spent all of yesterday afternoon at my art table working on my Country Diary painting, so I've decided to show you the view from my art table.  By doing this post first I'll have a little more time to work on my painting (which I'm not pleased with yet) before I have to show it in the Country Diary post.  

The sun is just beginning to appear between the bare trees above the cliffs (the dark area above the snow line) . . . .

MD Chapter TTMS Valentine Gathering

The Maryland Chapter of the Tasha Tudor Museum Society met today to celebrate Valentine's Day.  In her book, All For Love, Tasha Tudor writes, "Valentine's Day in our home centers on the Sparrow Post, where there is always interesting mail on February 14th for each member of the family.  Postmaster is Augustus Sparrow....The miniature mail is, of course, just the right size for his customers, who are mainly dolls, plush bears, cut-wool rabbits and plush ducklings."
