NOTE added tuesday, november 9th: if you’re interested in receiving one of the books here please send an email with your address to firstname.lastname@example.org and the first few writers will win a copy of the ones i have on hand. i can’t choose so hurry!
bonjour everybody, i hope you’re having a good weekend and are nice and cozy where ever you are. i guess it’s that time of year where we feather our nests, break out throw blankets, add another layer to the bed and generally make home a little more snuggly. i’ve recently been sent a lot of books about doing just that, some from authors i know, others are blog friends and others i just admire.
it’s amazing just how much these women accomplish and the great talent that’s between these covers! you probably know vicki archer from ‘my french life’ and her blog, french essence. well her new book just came out and she’s hosting a giveaway for it on her blog. it was shot by carla colusion who also has a book, paris tango. i don’t know where they find the time but these ladies are beyond inspiring. i was lucky enough to meet them both at the blogger round-up in paris last month and am thrilled for them to have this new project finished!
another one of my gurus is betty lou phillips who has written her 10th book! she just sent me her latest and it’s shot by our mutual friend, dan piassick. they’re an incredible team and are blowing me away with what they accomplish together!
and if you’re a blogger than chances are you have run across the fabulous fifi who has just traveled the country shooting with other bloggers and putting out her new book! these ladies are killing me, my christmas list is getting way too long!
ok i could go on and on but this one is written by one of my favorite french ladies, ines de la fressange. she’s a legend and her new book is one i haven’t gotten my mitts on yet but, well, put it on the list!
while i was finding the links i came across these. suffice it to say there’s a lot of passion, talent and great taste flying around out there right now! if you’re a book lover, you know this is the tip of an enormous iceberg but hey, it’s a start. if you want to win one of the books listed here, just leave a comment and i’ll draw the winners on tuesday. till then, have a great weekend and stay cozy with a good book!
