1 Sibley, Celestine A Place Called Sweet Apple and the Sweet Apple Gardening Book
Dolphin Books 1973 First Edition; First Impression Paperback Very Good with no dust jacket 
Yellow Boxed set, looks never used. Celestine Sibley (May 23, 1917 August 15, 1999) was an American journalist and author based in Atlanta. Sibley was born in Holley, Florida. A friend of Margaret Mitchell in the 1940s, she wrote for the Atlanta Constitution from 1941 to 1999. According to the New Georgia Encyclopedia, "Sibley was one of the most popular and long-running columnists for the Constitution, and her well-written and poignant essays on southern culture made her an icon in the South." In addition to her column, she covered Georgia politics along with many high-profile court cases. She also wrote 25 books, both nonfiction and fiction, including mystery novels.

2 Sibley, Celestine A Place Called Sweet Apple, Country Living and Southern Recipes
Garden City, NY Garden City: Doubleday, 1967, Garden City 1967 First Edition; First Printing Hardcover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket Illustrated by Ray Cruz Signed by Author
Signed by author. Dust Jacket now in Mylar Protective Cover. A Place Called Sweet Apple is your personal invitation to a cozy retreat in a very special spot.Sweet Apple-the very name evokes a rural charm. That's what Celestine Sibley discovered on her initial visit to the primitive log cabin built in 1844. And that's what she continued to find after many years living in the house, lovingly restores and filled with the memories of her own family's life there."How an old abandoned house can take hold of a reasonably sane woman's heart, fill her mind, lap up her energy and change her life is still something of a mystery to me," Sibley muses. By the time you have savored her tale of restoring the old house, Sweet Apple's charm will no longer be a mystery. The dilapidated ruin into which Sibley invested her heart and energy became a community project and Sibley and her family grew to love the colorful and interesting lifestyle of their neighborhood.This is far more, however, than a story about breathing new life into an old house and moving from the city to the country. It is a story of personal discovery and fulfillment laced with wry humor and good common sense. Sibley's vision of living and loving is so clear, so pure, that no reader can put down this book without feeling enriched. The sampling of Southern recipes that she has collected here are also certain to delight.; 1.11 x 9.13 x 6.57 Inches; Signed by Author
