Things in my House that Make me Happy

I collect cookbooks...
I absolutely love cookbooks...
...especially ones with pretty pictures.
There are a few of my favorites here, in my dining room.

Maybe you recognize the fabric covered box that I recieved in a blog swap,
from my blog friend, Marie, at Spun by Me.

Notice the fabric strawberries and watermelon slices that I received in a blog giveaway from my blog  friend, Brenda, at The Rusty Thimble.

Sometimes...it's just the simple things that make me most happy.

Take care,
~Natalie

Wonderful grouping. No wonder it makes you happy. Someone just gave me a couple of cookbooks the other day. I haven't had time to read them but am looking forward to it. I usually like to read a new one cover to cover.

In my opinion, cookbooks HAVE to have pictures! I like to see how it's "supposed" to look!

I have to confess....I love cookbooks too! I had the hubby make a shelf for mine...once the kitchen is completed, I'll have to post a picture.

Happy Birthday to your mom! Comfort food--hmmm. bread pudding with bourbon sauce is close to the top. Macaroni and cheese is there too!

Ohhh, cookbooks! but now the internet makes it so easy to look up a recipe I don't use them as much. How about you?
