Lovely Blogs

I just stumbled up on a lovely blog full of wonderful wool crafted items. As you get to know me you will find that along with paper crafts I also have a love of wool and fiber. 

So now I would like to share with you some of my favorite blogs. Some are craft oriented others are home decor inspiration and others are just fun. I hope you enjoy visiting them as much as I do.

A Taste of History

I just discovered this show, it looks like it has been on for awhile. DVD's for 5 seasons are available. It so interesting to watch the way he cooks. Chef Staib uses actual 18th century recipes and give details of history as he cooks. All of the dishes are cooked exactly the way they would have been in the 18th century. Dutch ovens, spiders, and caldrons are used with an open fire in a large walkin fireplace. I have always wanted to have a colonial fireplace that I could use to cook in. I started subscribing to the Early American Life magazine in 1976 during the bicentenial and especially liked the issues that covered using a colonial fireplace. 

To find out more about Chef Staib and the show check out the links below.
