What I'm reading right now....

I'm a book person. I don't have a Kindle. In know they are great for traveling, but I want to hold a book in my hands and turn the pages. I have stacks of books by my bed and magazines everywhere. It doesn't always have to be about the words - I like pictures of houses and interiors and cookbooks too! I recently read about these three books on other blogs and ordered them right away - and they are all wonderful! I recommend them all.

You can imagine how excited I was when I heard there was a new book coming out on Billy Baldwin! And the photos are wonderful. French cooking is my favorite and I have heard that this book is very cook friendly. The third book below concerned my husband who saw it and said "Oh no, now you have an excuse to be messy." Not true - the book is about balance and not obsessing on perfect cleanliness, but having a lived in, well kept, but not perfect, house.

Billy Baldwin: The Great American Decorator, by Adam Lewis.

Around My French Table, by Dorie Greenspan

A Perfectly Kept House Is a Sign of a Misspent Life: How to live creatively with collections, clutter, work, kids, pets, art, etc... and stop worrying about everything being perfectly in its place, by Mary Randolf Carter

All three are available at Amazon.


  1. Now you've put even more books in my Amazon cart! I'm enjoying Dorie's new cookbook and I hope you find some new favorites there. You know what inveterate book people we are, but I have to say that Jim adores his Kindle too.
