For inspiration, I've been re-reading an old favorite, Bertha Reppert's Growing Your Herb Business.
Such lovely gift and hospitality ideas from herbs--for resale or for blessing your friends. Her daughters maintain a Rosemary House blog, which is well worth reading.
Enjoying the China Bayles mysteries is as close as I'll come to an herb shop/tea room, but it's always free to daydream!
Yes, daydreaming is good :)
I'll hafta check the book out!
Oh my gosh. I am always blown away by the wonderful blogs and sites that you find to link to. Thanks for sharing. I love tea. Now I am going to have another fun blog to read. Roxie
I love China & Ruby...!! I even got an autographed hardback copy of the new Nightshade for by birthday... If you can get your hands on a used copy of China Bayles' Book of Days I think you would love it if you haven't read it yet...TONS of crafts and recipes for each day of the year
Daydreaming is great, I find it very theraputic and it sometimes even gives my creativity a jump start.
Oh thank you so much for the new blog! I have this book and it's trashed! But I still keep it for great inspiration.
I'm just starting to delve into herb growing myself; thanks for the links.
Love that bowl!
Oh, I must check out these books. I love a good cosy mystery.
I'm always amazed and admire people who run a successful home business. I'm one for the day dreaming when it comes to this. Thankfully I'm starting to realize that I do have a home business even though I don't turn a single penny. For me, its teaching my children at home. I do have the mending business but that is more of a charity when it comes down to it!
And I spend the rest of my spare time working with various boards in my city trying to improve my community, a political and practical voice if you will.
When I look at it like that, then yes, I still dream but I can feel happy about my life and not wistful about someone else's life! [and I don't need help doing that! lol!]
Check out my blog to see you're a blog award winner! I love your blog!
I just moved to the same area the Rosemary House is in, small world! Best wishes to you, your family and the new baby!
