Melissa Stramel is a blog buddy and asked me to be part of her blog book tour and I was happy to say yes.
Melissa has a new book out in both soft and hard cover. I have so much in common with Melissa so it was really fun to receive her book and find fun things we both enjoy doing. I thought I would post photos from her book along with photos of mine with things we have in common.
Melissa takes us month by month through the year in her book. And it almost can be used as a calendar with things to do according to season. I relate to so much of her farm life, even though I only have a suburban wanna be farm.
This picture is from my daughter Natalie's wedding (my family in the photo). Note the flowers in the blue jar, just like Melissa.
Melissa has a garden and talks about growing things with her family. In the late summer she makes salsa.
I can so relate. I love to make salsa, too.
Melissa has chickens and the family helps take care of them and gather eggs. This photo is from dying eggs at Easter with her children.
Of course I have chickens, too. We love to enjoy our fresh eggs, just like Melissa.
Of course Melissa quilts, and we share that in common. Along with so many other hobbies. There are patterns, recipes, ideas and fun stuff all in Melissa's book.
This book tour has lots of blogs participating. Visit Melissa's Make Life Beautiful blog for more information. And please leave a comment here for a chance at winning a copy of Melissa's book. I'll be entertaining comments all week and will pick a winner over the weekend and announce the winner on Monday. Play along, book giveaway tours are fun.
