Do you subscribe to Early American Life magazine? If not I strongly encourage you to purchase this month's edition - February 2010. I feel that it's one of the best ones published recently. I will warn you that there is only one early home featured, along with a condo decorated in the early American style we all love so much. It's the articles in this one that make it super special. The first article that I had to read was "Early Burl Treen" a very interesting article about treen. I did not know that Native Americans treasured the burl and used it extensively.
There is an article about Dolley Madison entitled "Turbans and Politics" again very interesting reading. There will be a PBS special on Dolley on March 1st, I'll be sure to tune in to that program. Dolley was known for her Turban head coverings, she was quite the fashion plate.
