Hello Dear Ones,
I so appreciate your visits here! Whether in a grand house or a trailer, it is good to know there are ladies who love their dwelling and want to tend to it!
When this tea book first came on the market I dearly wanted to get it, but the price was quite high for a new one. I recently found that when I buy a used book online, if I choose one that was formerly a library book, I get a better quality because it has an additional plastic cover on top of the paper jacket. Now, when selecting a book on my list, I always choose the library edition. That way, it will not wear as badly from so much use and will withstand the dust in my bookshelf as well.
Having the plastic covers also allows me to wipe the book with a damp cloth, something that does not work with many book covers when I want to remove stains, food or fingerprints. Occasionally there is a water spill on a book, and that is one reason I like these covers. I could cover all my books myself but it is time consuming and it sure is nice having things already done!
This book is more of an encyclopedia about the many uses of tea and even has recipes for skin treatments.
Protective plastic covers are added to library books.
I am looking forward to going through these pages and enjoying the photographs.
There is also a large recipe section in he back of the book.
As I have a lot of catching up to do in the house and also with unfinished sewing, I will not stay long here today, but I do have an upcoming post that I will publish when I have a longer stretch of time.
While I am sewing I am truly enjoying a multi-scented candle that smells just wonderful in the house. It is a Williamsburg brand that was on sale for about $3.00, and I like it so much that I went back to the store to find other scents and there were none left! In a small space, some scents are just too sharp,or over-powering, but this one is perfect. It is so well-scented that I do not need to burn it to bring out the fragrance. I keep it covered all the time and then remove the lid to release the scent. If I keep the lid on most of the time, the scent remains strong.
Today I have shared two things that bring sweet pleasure to the home life of a lady: a book and a candle. These things are not expensive and can also come from a dollar store. You can take a book you already have and fold a piece of wallpaper, scrapbook paper or wrapping paper around it to make it bright and cheerful, and it is also possible to make some kind of scent in a jar from your kitchen ingredients. The home treats are very welcome on a cold day with dark skies, especially when I am alone at home.
