A wonderful sourcebook of ideas, projects, activities, stories, recipes, and inspirational quotations, Simple Pleasures shows us how to better appreciate the sum of our existence through the simple things that make up our daily lives. From the soothing art of taking a bath (including a warm towel), indulging in a homemade herbal facial, and he pleasure of a clean desk, to the miracle journey of a country walk, chess in cafes, and the ritual of cooking a good soup, the authors offer a compendium of life's marvels.

Replete with stories, quotes, and dozens of satisfying recipes — including how to make your own perfume, create old-fashioned sachets, and bake the world's best Christmas cookies &38212; Simple Pleasures is both a guide to and a celebration of the art of living well.
