Long time friends know I've always admired Julia Childs' work. Besides her no nonsense attitude about cooking, I love that she didn't really get started in her "career" until sometime in her 40's or 50's. I wrote about her here.
So I am of course waiting to see Meryl Streep play Julia in the upcoming Julie/Julia....
Julie Powell's book "Julie/Julia......" is the book that got me started thinking about writing a blog.
Opening day, I'll be there and just hoping I won't have to drive too far..... My friend Cathy sent me this interesting link about the movie.
That Meryl - one summer Mama Mia, the next Julia Child. What a range she has!
BOOK PARTY - MAY 5-6
to celebrate the publication of my new book
CRAFTING A PATTERNED HOME.
Our colorful 1751 farmhouse will be open to the public. On view will be many of the projects that are featured in Crafting A Pattern Home along with many other things I have made over the years.
This event will be a celebration of the handmade. I hope the day will inspire you to add some pattern and color to your home.
The event is FREE. Books will be available along with some other things I have made. For more information and directions, see the EVENTBRITE PAGE HERE. Although tickets are not mandatory, it will help me get a count to know what to expect. Hope to see you here in western Massachusetts in May.
