Loved this macabre micro-history! From Natufian Funeral Flowers to Ondine‘s Curse, this book has a bit of it all. And it‘s just really beautiful inside and out. 💀

After finishing my second book and with eight hours under my belt, I‘m calling it a night. Happy reading, Littens!

I‘m finishing off some of the non-fic titles I started for #NFNov and then jumping into my TBR for the weekend.

Clwojick I live for Wholly Guacamole! I know it sounds totally weird, but one of my favourite combos is BBQ rice crackers, plain havarti and guac. 3d

“Scottish brownies and English hobgoblins like Shakespeare‘s Puck were said to be helpful creatures, but would immediately stop work if anyone gave them clothes to wear.”

Sounds like my two-year-old! 😂

mrsmarch I am unfamiliar with these because my Appalachian heritage was swamped by Yankee upbringing, but I am trying to uncover more. I might have to scare some up for my Christmas wish list. 1w
LauraBeth @cathipink I haven‘t but I did buy a volume yesterday! 1w
LauraBeth @Crazeedi did you grow up in southern Appalachia? 1w
LauraBeth @Blaire I bought an edition after leading through it! It looks interesting 😀 1w
LauraBeth @mrsmarch 😂😂 I feel like I grew up knowing about Foxfire but I never paid much attention to it! I think you‘ll enjoy it! 1w
Crazeedi @LauraBeth no, but on the edge of northern Appalachia, and I had several of the foxfire books when I was younger, not sure if I still do or got rid of them in my many moves 1w
Suet624 Oh! I had some of those when I lived on the commune. 1w
LauraBeth @Suet624 I‘m just over here anxiously waiting for your biography! 1w
Suet624 @LauraBeth I just started chuckling thinking of some of the commune events. I‘m hoping to leave crib notes for the kids in case they want to know what I was up to. For some reason they don‘t really ask very many questions. 1w

Lindy Is Eppie Morrie included? That‘s my favourite Scottish ballad. 1w
Cathythoughts @batsy that‘s a coincidence ❤️ 1w
Cathythoughts @Lindy no , that one isn‘t in it. I‘ve heard of Eppie Morrie, but I don‘t know it ... must listen out for it ❤️ 1w
Lindy @Cathythoughts I haven‘t heard it in ages so I just went looking online and found it! Alix Dobkin singing “There‘s no a man in all Strathdon shall wedded be with me” (I have the vinyl stored away in my garage) https://youtu.be/NyxhtegYRrA 1w

*Mind. Blown*

So, bear with me - convoluted as ever. #cherish ➡️ Cherish the Ladies ➡️ folk tunes ➡️ folk tales ➡️ fairy tales and forests ➡️ to my bookshelf to see if there was anything cherish-like in here... and I didn‘t get any further than the pre-book quotes. Stunned (and not stunned) that such a dismissive-sounding term comes from such a special relationship!

Really must read this some time soon!
