My Autographed Cookbook Bookshelf - May 2017

I decided that my autographed cookbook collection needed to be the star in our newly refreshed dining room.


Trinkets already around my house decorate the shelves.


The first three shelves are devoted to my four cooking mentors.  Julia Child and Ree Drummond (The Pioneer Woman) share the top shelf.  Ina Garten, (The Barefoot Contessa) is the second shelf and Martha Stewart is the third shelf.




Our neighbor, Tamara Geddes, painted the coffee cup on the bottom shelf one year for our Christmas gift.


I LOVE how this autographed cookbook bookcase turned out!

Pioneer Woman's Mercantile - 051417

My sister ordered me an awesome saran wrap dispenser from Ree Drummond's store, The Pioneer Woman Mercantile, for Mother's Day!  Look how awesome it comes when you have it gift wrapped.  I love it.  Thank you so much!

Giada De Laurentiis - Book Signing Photos



I went to book signing of Giada De Laurentiis on October 17, 2008 in Las Vegas, NV. She was signing books in the Sur La Table store in the Miracle Mile at the Planet Hollywood Hotel. This was just part of the enormous line to see Giada.



They had a place that you could stand in the store if you were not getting an autographed book and just take some pictures.



It worked out great. I thought that I would be there for hours and ended up being there 15 minutes!



Thanks for the fun pictures, Giada!
