She reminds us of a whimsical childhood with accounts of Ghost Gardens and the gathering of Fairy Bouquets, and she awakens us gently with the reminder to detoxify your garden and be kind to the giving Earth.

Friends are there for us. They join our life's adventures and play with us. They bring us comfort, sometimes the only small pleasure we have, in troubled times. They bring us the gift--and the pleasure--of understanding. Susannah Seton sent out a call for stories about friendship and these are the themes that emerged. They form the backbone of this newest addition to her Simple Pleasures series.
Dipping into this book is like dunking cookies in milk with your best friend. You'll share stories from childhood. Take a walk together and then enjoy a peppermint footbath--recipe herein! From shopping trips to poker parties--these stories will inspire you. And make you laugh and make you cry and make you want to call an old friend just because. Or make a play date for an at-home movie night--complete with Parmesan popcorn, recipe within.
Dubbed the "antidote to Martha Stewart" by Booklist, Seton delights with her uniquely heartwarming approach to simplifying and slowing down to enjoy each day. Here, she has lovingly organized a guidebook to the joys of "friending" with stories, heirloom recipes, gift ideas, and inspirational quotes. Be inspired to give a friend a handmade cookbook, with room for a growing collection of recipes shared together. Or start an Eyelash Club of your own. Create handmade gifts. Cry--and then laugh--over missing wedding dresses and a St. Joseph statue buried upside down to sell a house. Share spa recipes for scrubs, soaps, and salts.
