We wanted to share our new eBay purchase. It holds some resonance in the current economy. Check out what's inside...

OK, so maybe you don't exactly need to figure out use the lay of the land or you're not going to make a cheese basket or your own broom. But we just loved the inspiring optimism that we found in these pages. Back to Basics was published by Reader's Digest in 1981 and contains information on everything from gardening in limited spaces to patchwork quilting and braided rugs. The food sections are particularly interesting with information on baking bread, homemade beverages, and regional cooking.

So if you want to join us in getting back to basics, we saw 8 copies of the 1981 version on Ebay (all for less than $20) or the 2008 edition is for sale on Amazon. Let us know, if you make something.
