Well I have a confession to make, Thanksgiving is going to be lame this year. Actually let me rephrase that, it will be amazing BUT not because of anything I did. I am too overwhelmed and asked my mother to host Thanksgiving instead. She graciously accepted, thank you mom. Both her and my sister are fantastic cooks, so it will be yummy. I will be just making boring mashed potatoes, store bought turkey gravy (shock, Central's is really good) and pancetta-chestnut stuffing. Chloe is making a long-pie pumpkin pie and Auberne` will make pecan pie bars. I also confess it was hard to ask my mom. I feel so Martha and like I should be hosting it. But the minute I asked I felt better. So if you are feeling overwhelmed, I encourage you to say so, asked for help, simplify. I did and am so glad.
Thank you again for all the kind notes and prayers for David and me. He is slowly, very slowly feeling better, but it is going to take a while. As a thank you and also for having over 700 posts now (akk who knew I had so much to say ;-) I am having a book giveaway. First is For The Love Of Old by Mary Randolf Carter, I have seen blog posts about this book and was very interested, but it was $50.00. On my last trip to Leavenworth, I got it at a bargain price. I really enjoyed this book. It has stunning photos, all old, chipped, used things I love, very inspiring. I thought I would share it with you, my dear readers.
The second book is Christmas With Victoria, I accidentally bought a copy when I already had one. By the way any of you old Victoria magazine lovers out there (which I know most of you are !!) you should check out the Victoria Christmas books from the late 80's and early 90's. They are DIRT cheap right now, but one day they will not be. I had two but decided to get the rest for my collection, while I can.
To win just leave a comment and tell me which book you would like (if you say both then I will choose for you) and if there is anything you would like me to post about. There will be two winners, one for each book. I will post winners after Thanksgiving, good luck. Oh by the way if I was not so overwhelmed this is what I would be making for Thanksgiving. What are you making ??? xoxoxox
