Two really nice books!


There are times when you most certainly can judge a book by its cover!!
This book is adorable.
The photography is pure delight and you will oooh and ahh as you turn the pages.
I actually bought mine second hand, from Amazon marketplace. It's in perfect condition!
And yes, you get the recipes and ...so much more!





Secondly, may I introduce:


£7.71 from The Book Depository...free postage!

I love books too. I have looked at the Apples for Jam book and often thought shall I buy it! I love the pictures.
Your Foxglove is very pretty by the way.

I hadn't realised what gorgeous pictures Apples for Jam had in it and as for that patchwork book, it's lovely! I'm off to add them to my wish list now! Lucy x

I'm always tempted by "Apples for Jam", I think it's the red shoes that do it for me, remind me of childhood. May have to make it my next book purchase!

They both look utterly adorable. I don't cook and I can't sew but they just look lovely, as though you could just gaze at them for ages and ages.

These are both wonderful books. I have heard of Apples For Jam but had no idea that the pictures were as good as the recipes, too. Both books are delicious! A must have!!

Thanks for sharing!
