As Christmas approaches (ridiculously quick), I thought I would recommend some books that I have read recently that would make great presents.
Recipes to Remember - The Australian Women's Weekly
The AWW never disappoint with their cookbooks.
The artwork in Recipes to Remember is retro gorgeous and the recipes will have your mouth watering.
A beautiful book for vintage lovers and foodies.
Only in New York - Lily Brett
Lily Brett hooks me in with each of her books.
I know that I may never get to New York (incredible fear of flying), but her observations of New York City makes me feel like I would know my way around if I ever did go there.
How to be Parisian - Anne Berest, Caroline De Maigret, Sophie Mass and Audrey Diwan
Karl Lagerfeld says, "You don't have to be French to be a Parisian". Thanks Karl.
This book is chic. Parisian chic. Book chic. it's just chic.
It has beautiful illustrations and photography, with a dose of humour thrown in.
Maybe if I read it over and over, I will start to look like Françoise Hardy or Brigitte Bardot. Nope, don't think so.
Beautiful Goats - Felicity Stockwell
This book features goats photographed just like the models in a high fashion magazine. They are the supermodels of the goat world.
The book delves into the history of goats - (gasp!) provider of skin, meat and dairy.
There is an increasing trend of keeping goats as pets - an idea that I love if only I had a little farm.
