Mrs. Sharp's Traditions: Reviving Victorian Family Celebrations of Comfort & Joy
by Sarah Ban Breathnach
One of my favorite books! It has lovely Victorian pictures in a month-by-month treatment of various holidays and seasonal celebrations with great recipes and ideas on how to observe these special days. In the process, "Mrs. Sharp" manages to put forth a gentle, family-centered philosophy of life.
This is the first Sarah Ban Breathnach book I came across several years ago. I loved it so much that I went out and got her Simple Abundance books. Personally I prefer Mrs. Sharp over her widely popular series.
