What I am Reading This Week...

This week there has been a bit of a difference in my reading.  I generally love a great fictional novel, particularly a great southern one, but this week I have changed speeds a bit. I am sure all the work around our new house has gotten me off on a tangent and I picked up  Paula Deen's Savannah Style (Paula Deen with Brandon Branch) at the bookstore a few days ago.  Since this book hit the shelves last Spring, I have picked it up, looked through it, walked around the bookstore with it, put it back more times than I can count!  Well, last week I bit the bullet, and bought it because I just kept coming back to it and the gorgeous design ideas inside!  I love the styles represented and I am finding tons of inspiration for my house between the covers. Of course, my resent obsession with Fall and the corresponding layout, helped to push me over the edge (and the book and I to the checkout ).

No endorsement paid, personal opinion only...thank you, very much!

I absolutely adore this book! I have it propped on an easel/book stand in my living room! It has gorgeous pictures of homes in all price ranges. I read it and reread it or at least flip through the pictures time and time again.

(This is what Miss Brooke was actually going to bring as her hostess gift for you. If I had known you were struggling so with buying it, she definitely would have brought it!!)

I think she is building a new home again isn't she Michelle? I would love to have her designer come and help me. I'll have to look for that book cause I don't already have enough. Roll of eyes.

I don't own the book...but it sounds wonderful! I love Paula's cooking. I think I agree with Melanie, I will have to buy it before we move. Thank you for sharing!

It looks like a great book, she is one amazing woman! I'm so glad you stopped by and left a comment on my blog. I was at working trying to hit as many of the posts at Hooked on Houses in as short as time as possible, lol! I noticed on your profile you live in Florence, I lived in Florence a long, long time ago. What a small world. Stop by my blog tomorrow and over the weekend, I'm going to have a bunch of freebies! Have a great weekend, Nan

I have several of her cookbooks and do enjoy her magazine. I don't have this book, but it really looks like something I would enjoy.

I love this book...I bought it and left it with my Mom to look through...that was about 3 months ago, so looks like I might as well bite the bullet and go back to the bookstore for another copy...my Mom is a huge Paula fan. I've signed up as a follower...thanks for your recent visit and for siging up to follow...come back soon.
