Books, Books, Books....

I mentioned a couple weeks ago about a Book Giveaway on LuLu's Vintage Blog. She was giving away two signed copies of 'The Kitchen Linens Book'. Well guess who won?? Yes, ME! I don't think I've ever won anything, so I was shocked and thrilled when I received the e-mail letting me know my book is on the way~Yay!

This Butterick transfer pattern is included with the book!

I can't wait to get this book 'The Farm Chicks in the Kitchen' How yummy is this cover? If I never opened it, it would still be worth owning just to sit out and display :) But, I'm sure it's filled with delicious recipes worth trying.

If you haven't been to the Farm Chicks Blog or Website, you really need to! They have super cute jewelry & tee's.

This last book is a little more serious, but really eye opening and worth checking out. On the way home from dropping my girls off at school I caught a few minutes of the author Joel Berg being interviewed on a local radio program. All You Can Eat reveals that hunger is a problem as American as apple pie, and shows what it's like when your income is not enough to cover rising housing/living costs and how difficult it's getting to put food on the table. Unfortunately more and more families are experiencing this all across America, it's becoming all too common. You can learn more about the book and author at
