This year marks one hundred years since skillful nature enthusiast Edith Holden fashioned her "Nature Notes for 1906," later published in facsimile as The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady. We began new 2006 nature journals yesterday, inspired by Miss Holden's appealing artwork, meticulous notes, and heartening quotations and poetry.
We also made the notable discovery that Noritake once manufactured a china pattern featuring Miss Holden's work called "Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady." It is available in both octagonal and round shapes. What an enchanting outdoor teatime these pieces would make!
