Library treats . . .

Wings from the Wind – an Anthology of Poems selected and illustrated by Tasha Tudor.

Oh my – such lovely pencil sketches! I am going to have fun copying – that’s my inartistic artist’s style.

I copy and I love to do it. it gives me such a sense of satisfaction.

I really don’t know why. The closer I get to the original the better I like it.

I know it’s not “true art”  but I really don’t care. It makes me happy.

Another book that is filled with delectable recipes and delectable words.

I think I love the words more than I do the food. (I can say that now because I just finished my breakfast and I’m not hungry…)

 But I think it’s true. I savour words – they give me a deep pleasure.

  3. I found your blog through Susan’s at High Desert Home. We, too, love Tasha Tudor, and I had not heard of this one either! I just requested it from our library! Can’t wait to read it! And what a great idea to copy her art…what a true form of flattery and a good way to learn to draw as well!!

  4. Ah. . .the pencil sketch is darling and I would say if you can come remotely close to an original, it is true art. Oh the food book sounds delicious. I could whittle away hours reading cookbooks. . .

  5. Well, Kathie, I hope you really will enjoy Kitchen Diaries. If reading the book is just as much (or more) about the writing as the food (and for me it is, too), I think you’ll love it. Nigel has a way with words for sure. And he’s also a killer cook! :-)As for the Tasha Tudor book, thanks for the recommendation. I’ve never even heard of this. I like what you said about your "art" and it making you happy. I love the attitude!Susan

  6. This is the second book I’ve been tempted to run right over and order today. I’m on a self-imposed book buying ‘pause’ this year because I went a little crazy last year. This is going on my Christmas list.
