Since Joe works all day and we are pinching pennies til' we're in the new house, I brought several books with me on this trip up to Buffalo. Yesterday I sat down and read Susan Branch's Autumn From The Heart Of The Home. Have you read her books?? I have several and I must say they are all so wonderful. Part cook book, part decorating, part biography, part art book...something for everyone who takes joy in their home.
Not to say they're perfect. For instance, though she has a Summer and Autumn and even a Christmas book there are no Spring or Winter editions! Also, I believe that you put on pounds just reading all those recipes...DELICIOUS!
If you haven't read her books, you don't know what you're missing. Run to your nearest book store or library and check them out....literally!
