New Books and a Last Minute *Giveaway!*
We headed out to the resale store this afternoon and all kinds of wonderful book popped out at me from the full bookshelves!
This little quote book has beautiful drawings and pictures of Royal Albert Old Country Roses.
This is my mom's favorite china pattern, so I will be sending this book to her.
Have you heard of The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady by Edith Holden?
It is filled with beautiful nature drawings, poems and personal thoughts.
Prayers and Blessings for your Home
Sweet poems and quotes that take us through all four seasons.
No Better Friend Than You
Another seasonal book with friendship poems and quotes. It would make a great gift!
An Invitation to Tea by Emilie Barnes. Inside are 10 different themed teas, along with lots of recipes.
And last but not least, The Gentle Art of Hospitality by Alda Ellis. I have never seen this book before, but glancing through it, I can see that it is filled with great ideas and recipes...
~Create a warm kitchen welcome
