Happy Friday! I’m planning to enjoy some unexpectedly warm November weather with plenty of walks outside and reconnecting with friends. And of course, some kind of extravagant baking/cooking project will be involved. Fall chestnuts, I have my eye on you.
Hope your weekend is relaxing and fun. In the meantime, here are some fun historical links from around the web…
Houseplants throughout history. Make your own Hanging Gardens of Babylon!
The wonder of the mechanical apple peeler-slicer-corer, fresh from the 1880s. Also, that pie sounds amazing.
Dry your fruits and veggies colonial-style.
These colorized old photos are stunning.
