Happy Laura month!

It's Laura month here at Jasper's Cottage. That's because February is the month we celebrate the birth of my favorite author, Laura Ingalls Wilder.

All this month I plan on posting little bits of information about Laura - links to her homesites, quotes from her books and many articles, pictures of LIW trips I've taken, etc.

Did you know that Laura didn't start writing and publishing the Little House books until she was in her 60s? It gives me hope although I guess I'd better get cracking - I'm closer to 60 than I used to be!

  1. I bought a little glass box at Ingalls Homestead that has and older Laura on it to remind me that it's not too late. :)
    I look forward to your Month of Laura! I decided last night that I'm going to spend the month of February reading and re-reading (in some cases) all Laura.


Pull up a chair on the porch, have some lemonade and leave your comment in my mailbox. Thanks for visiting my little cottage!
