the washstand... with the cookbooks...piled in
their temporary place in the living room.
then there was a little inspiration on Pinterest!
|the before and after...so far...i even found a new look for our Chocolate Gousse's cookie jar!|
yesterday, i made myself a giant mug of tea and started covering away.
it was sort of fun covering books in the Fall. it reminded me of my
old school days. i'm about half way finished. i just thought that i
would share my progress...
the very sweet thing about the covering
project, was reading all the sentiments written inside the books that
were gifts to me. my favorite is from my youngest brother Jay. it would be the
last cookbook and sentiment from him. due to a head injury, he experienced early
onset dementia. he passed away about five years ago. he always recognized my
creative passion! i wish to share his sweet words with you today.
i LOVE how he wrote the sentiment to my whole family...
Dear Lynne, Kim, Chrislyn & Jay:
'Tis the joys of cooking
that bring family and friends
to a festive table to enjoy
harmony and cheerful graces.
Merry Christmas 1999!
from my brother's heart...to mine,
now to all of yours...
i wish you a week of
harmony and cheerful graces!
