What's in this issue?

O! These Artists! the Decorating article

Whether for yourself or for a family member, when the artist has outgrown more makeshift arrangements and needs a real-deal atelier, it's wise to begin by watching habits.  So, we construct, clarify, consider, crate, cram, clear out, cover, camouflage, correct, and then construct even more to accommodate needs.  Sometimes a construction project is the work of an hour, many times it's the work of months, even years, but consistent fine-tuning is part of the atelier game.  What we've learned from the process would fill more than these pages, but this article offers important insights learned along the way.

Forget-Me-Not the Hearth article

In the spirit of learning from Kästner's double Lotties, here are some child-proof (and adult-friendly) tips for capturing the beautifully simple and simply beautiful forget-me-nots, gentians and sunny skies in Kästner's winning tale.  Exercises include: Mixing Sky Blue, Creating Lottie's Forget-Me-Not Motif, and painting Lisa's Alpine Gentian.

We're Traveling the Kitchen article

We decided to travel—equipped with a spoon, fork and knife—with Uncle Erich on a trip through the book, visiting some of the best tastes each area has to offer.  We begin by cooking dinners in Munich with Lisa, conjuring up an alpine supper and a teatime treat in Garmisch, and ending with sweets in Vienna.  Recipes include: Braised Pork Ribs, Red Cabbage with Apples, Chicken Cutlets with Mushrooms, Pickled Pork, Bavarian June Bug Bread, Chocolate Macaroons, Viennese Milk Bread, Viennese Almond Bunnies, Little Viennese Waffles, and Viennese Waffle Tort.

Enzian the Garden article

The name Enzian, while certainly no identical twin, is still a bit of a doppelgnger for the word ensign in English; and is a particularly apt fit for gentians because it describes what the blooms truly aredeep-blue pennants, dauntless standard-bearers and the ubiquitous floral insignia of the alps.

Bright Lanterns the Workshop article

We wanted to create an enduring memento of the twins' time at camp, and that farewell evening when they discovered that switching identities might just fool everyone.  Follow Ashton's instructions to create a finely crafted, mid-century style lantern full of the nuances of Oriental design.
