Good Morning yall!
Again, sorry for not posting a lot lately. I’ve just been so busy and tired. I need a vacation, and luckily my break is finally coming!
I woke up this morning to find the coolest thing in my mailbox! A package from Jill, my fellow blogger on Cupertino Chronicles! I knew this was coming since a few weeks ago I won her book giveaway. I was so excited and also so touched that she was ready to mail it to France for me!!!
When I opened the package, there was this cute little card:
And then the book from Country Living: “Farm Chicks in the Kitchen” … It is by far the cutest cookbook I own…
All there recipes look pretty awesome…. And the desserts list makes me drool….
And the cinnamon buns….
What I also love about this book is all the decorating tips and ideas thrown here and there…. I love the vintage/ countryish style. It reminds me of my mother in law, Kathy, so much…. She has a perfect sense of style and her house is beautiful. So when I opened this book I couldn’t help but think of her!
So cool!!! Thank you Jill for sharing this with me!!!! You made my week!
Sorry but I’ll have to keep bragging about my mother in law some more. As you could see from my previous post, I have a pretty awesome mom, myself. But I got lucky! and was blessed with an equally awesome mom in law!!!! She is quite crafty and has incredible decorating ideas. One of the last thing she made are these funky light shades:
These went in her laundry room and pantry… pretty stylish!
This reminds me how much I miss Texas. I wish I could be sitting on the back porch of my in law’s house, enjoying a cup of ice tea and the great view….
Nature is really the one thing I miss living in Paris… Ahhhh…. the Hill Country is just so pretty (the pics were taken last winter by my sis in law Kristin and her husband Jeremy)
Well… Yall have a great weekend! I’m heading to the hairdresser right now for a much needed hair cut!
