As always, I have lots of things going on all at once, but I decided to
take a short break and fill y'all in on what I have been reading lately.
I purchased Ricky Lauren's book The Hamptons from an ebay shop
where all the proceeds go to charity. This is a great book filled with
wonderful family recipes and as one would expect from the wife of
Ralph Lauren, beautiful photos as well. I have gleaned lots of great
ideas for tablescapes for this book!
Of course I had to use my new teapot. Did I need another teapot? No I
certainly did not. Did I want this particular teapot? Well yes indeed I did!
I am in love with this teapot!!!
I make great use of our local library and checked out Susan Branch's
A Fine Romance. I loved every page filled with wonderful pictures
and travels through the English countryside. I have to return it, but
I will be purchasing my own copy because this book is one I know I
will refer to again and again. Charming ~ just like Susan Branch.
I have just started Elin Hilderbrand's Beautiful Day. I discovered her
novels several years ago and have now read most of them which always
take place on Nantucket. I tend to reserve novels like this one for summer
reading, but I'm flying through the pages of this one and enjoying it.
So that's what's up for this Wednesday. I have a new iPhone that takes
great videos and is I believe going to make it much easier to upload
videos onto YouTube. I have a YouTube channel that I have not uploaded
to since moving to Texas. Once I get this back up and running I will
let y'all know. I thought it might be fun to take y'all along with Bentley
and me as we go on walks and visit neighborhoods and shops and more.
Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley
