Available from:

The Blessing of the Animals (The Strand, 1900)
A lovely ceremony in the Mexican town of Cuernavaca, where on St. Anthony's day the church blesses everything from burros to bunnies.
Easter Eggs (GOP, 1899)
A look at the beautifully painted eggs of European tradition, including what we know today as Pysanky eggs.
Life in an American Boarding House (CFM, 1886)
"The boarding house as a home is rarely a matter of choice, but it is the best [a married couple] can do to meet the difficulty of living in a country where the conditions of social life are less easy than elsewhere."
American Dinners: How They Are Prepared (CFM, 1881)
From "punkin" pie to the ever-present salver of celery, a British author looks at the American dinner table.
How to Dress Your Children (CFM, 1889)
From Jersey suits to sailor's outfits, an overview of "recommended" fashions for children.
Model Menu for March (GOP, 1893)
What to offer for this month's dinner party.
Out-Door Games From Over the Sea, Part 3: Marching Games (GOP, 1892)
A six-part series that looks at children's outdoor games from around the world, including some marvelous folklore about counting rhymes and other verses! (Warning: Victorian children's rhymes, especially from America, were not always politically correct!)
Art Needlework (GOP, 1888)
Beautiful embroidery patterns that work just as well today as they did more than 100 years ago.
Mr. Smith and His Friends (CFM, 1890)
Third in a series of tales of the adventures of Mr. Smith, a charming fellow generously described as a "dachshund." (His best friends are the horses.)
On Gimcracks (GOP, 1896)
One thinks of "gimcracks" as being a traditional form of Victorian decorating; here's a dissenting opinion.
March Lore (ILA, 1846)
Country lore, customs and feast days.
New Ideas for Teas (GOP, 1902)
Some ideas for decorations and entertainments.
Butter and Cream (CFM, 1878)

Fiction: Boney's Bonfire (CFM, 1896)
Charming tale of how the threat of Napoleonic invasion saved a thief - and cemented a romance.
Odds and Ends (GOP, 1896)
A fascinating round-up of news, notes and trivia from around the Victorian world.
The Land of Topsy-Turvy
