This beautifully photographed series of board books shows us the major stages in a baby’s first year the first day, sitting, crawling, and walking. Mother, father, and big brother also appear. Finally in Not a Baby Anymore! the little boy has made the amazing transition to walking, and he has even started day care. We see him having his first haircut and getting all dressed up in time to celebrate his very first birthday party.
Building Adirondack furniture is a time-honored craft. Sturdy and rustic, this furniture can be a beautiful addition to any indoor decor, although it's most often used to set the scene outdoors. There, the furniture is subjected to a lifetime of abuse. Yearly it moves from somewhere hidden away (probably dark and musty winter storage) to front-and-center on the summer stage. Now, hour after hour it is beaten on by intense UV light, drenched in driving rains, then fried again in the summer sun.
