Elspeth Thompson

The blog world gives news.
Even news of deaths.
Letters from a Hill Farm
gave me the news today. I have
read Elspeth's blog . She wrote a
gardening column in the UK. She
recently made a home in Sussex in
a railroad car! Of course, she was
revitalizing the garden.

She had written a book
called The Wonderful Weekend Book:
Reclaiming Life's Simple Pleasures.

She also cowrote HOMEMADE:
Gorgeous Things
to Make with Love, with Ros Badger.
Here are her words about her dear

They have a new book due out in the Fall:

Homemade: 101 Beautiful and Useful Craft Projects You Can Make at Home by Ros Badger and Elspeth Thompson (Hardcover - Nov. 1, 2010)

Here is her blog.
Here is the obituary.

I'm not familiar with this author, but her books look charming. Was shocked, however, to read the last bit of her obituary. To be so sad is the ultimate sadness indeed.h

I always read Thompson's blog and would love to read her books. I felt so sad when I read the news of her death on Monday. So, so sad.
