Great Book Find!

As many of my friends and relatives will attest, I love books . I have been known to browse through Amazon for hours on end. I especially love books about country decorating for the seasons. When I came across this book put out by Meredith Press and Country Home entitled Quick Country Decorating: Ideas For Every Season, I just had a feeling it was a good one. And for $4.00 and free shipping and no tax I was sold. Well I can honestly say now that I have received it, it is beyond good even beyond great . It  is just better than I ever would have imagined. It is hardcover,oversized and  divided into 4 chapters entitled Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. It is chock full of country decorating ideas and how tos for all rooms of the house, recipes, crafts, gardening tips and gorgeous pictures. I find myself picking this book up over and over again. Here are a few pictures from the book.
The cover

I love these aprons tied on the backs and seats of these chairs as seat covers.

I'm not sure if you can see the apple tablecloth weights on this autumn table in this pic

I love this idea of the Christmas tree placed in a container set in this upside down old stool


  1. Wouldn't Christmas aprons be darling on the chairs for a party??

    LOVE the garland on the stair banister.....
