Cookbook Question Answered-UPDATE

UPDATE: If you live anywhere other than the US, you may certainly order a cookbook.  The shipping will be more of course UNLESS you are willing to wait 4-6 weeks.  If so, just go thru paypal and order.  Thanks! If you any other questions email me at notquitejunecleaver @ gmail dot com , removing spaces and replacing a . for the word dot. 

Erica asked about purchasing my cookbook and I am assuming she is asking about Christmas Traditions.

I do have some copies left and would love for you to have one…or two…or five! You can follow this link to purchase a copy. Thanks so much for your interest! I am working on a series of cookbooks as well…but as you all know my life has not lent itself to such things lately. But I will eventually finish them…I promise!

Don't you love good mail??

Well today was especially good mail.  Not ONE bill, Victoria magazine!, and THESE lovely mini aprons from my friends over at MaryJanesFarm forum!!! Happy Halloween to me!

Guess I should get out the rest of my decorations…I will post pictures when I get them strung!

And now for a gross picture of my son’s crazy tonsils.  I told Husband I would email him a picture.  He won’t believe it when he sees it!  You are not really supposed to be able to see your tonsils…much less have them nearly touch!!!

Day Two of "A Few of My Favorite Things" Giveaway

Here you go…this is added to the box!

Actually I will be adding TWO copies of MaryJanesFarm magazine.  This one (be sure and check out the article about MOI!!) and one called Artists in Aprons!  How appropriate is that?

Okay…now I said I would tell you about the BIG ol’ red wall in my living room. bigredwall.jpg
This isnt a great picture I realize.  And no my sofa is not that close to the door!  But anywho…Rachel is making black and white photos for me to hang on that wall.  One will be of the heart shaped tree trunk in our yard.   It will be the biggest – probably have it enlarged to 11 x 17 or maybe a little bigger.  Then smaller b & w photos around it.  Like the sweetgum ball I posted yesterday.  And these are in the running.    wallphotos.jpg

She’s working on some for me.  I think they will look beautiful in B & W, framed in black.  Then I plan to have B& W photos of family displayed in frames on the book shelves and the top of my sofa table (yet to be purchased – picked out – not bought) will have a piece of glass with vintage (copies) of photos displayed underneath the glass, “collage like”.  What do you think?

I have often said that I didnt know if our marriage would withstand building a house (I hear it is VERY hard on a relationship), because I falsely assumed we had completely different tastes.  Kinda like I was married to this man for 25 years before I got up nerve to ask him about his political views.  I assumed based on the fact that he lives his life in such as way as to lead one to believe he was ultra conservative when in fact the man is just slightly left of Gandhi! WHO KNEW??? But back to decorating.  I just stepped back when we started talking about redoing the living room.  Husband has really good taste and is amazing with colors so I just decided I would let him run with it.  But no doing.  He wanted to know what I liked.  If I liked this?  Or would rather have that.  Oddly, or maybe not so oddly, we meshed perfectly with what we liked.  The colors, the contrasts, the plans for the entertainment center and bookshelves/cabinets, right down to the hardware.  Not one disagreement .  I really cant wait to share the finished room with all of you.  It is going to be lovely.

Renee asked back in the comments on this post what I liked for bedroom colors. Well as much as I love LOVE LOVE rich colors for living rooms and kitchens and even bathrooms (our bathroom is Granny Smith Apple Green with black and white and red accents), I prefer muted colors for bedrooms.  I think we are going to paint ours the palest of blues.  Granted that will cause me to have to get new linens but that’s not a bad thing, right?  I want pale PALE blue walls, white trim, white curtains (sheers) and add some color in the linens.  Probably some red since it is my favorite color. But only a touch of red.  I can see it in my mind…mostly white/very pale blue with a splash of red and yellow.  So I suppose Renee, my thoughts are pastels, muted colors, calming, soothing.  I will try to find a picture to explain better.

So now some not so pleasant news from home: Benjamin is in all likelihood, getting his tonsils and adenoids removed first week of November.   We have an appt next week with the ENT dr to finalize the plans.  It is long over due and we all will be happy to have the procedure over and done with.
