Wow! My husband bought me a book for Mother's day! Two! One is Janet Evanovich's first three Stephanie Plum books in one hardcover. Love it. Of course, I've read all three books umpteen times. First as an avid fan and lately as a writer. But it's a treat to have them in one safe place on my bookshelf, all nice and clean. My originals are a bit worn by now!
The second book is by Rosemary Harris, who happens to live in Fairfield County (and Manhattan) where I live! Her cover art is fabulous (those daisies look oh so Picasso!)and I'd have pulled this book off the shelf and bought it myself. Is Mark great, or what? Oh, I also got some girly Lavender shower stuff from Blue Tulip. Very nice. I never buy myself that kind of stuff. I'm a real un-girl that way. So it's a treat to have some lovely potions with which to pamper myself.
Rosemary's website has a nifty "What are you" ditty for flowers. Check mine out - completely accurate. I've never been a sweet pea or a rose or a shrinking violet. Snap dragon? Oh yes, that's me!
