In The BNOTP Library: Martha Stewart’s Christmas

Since we're in the Christmas season, I've been sharing a lot of my favorite Christmas-themed books. I can't let the season get by without sharing one of my favorites by Martha Stewart. I've had the paperback version for many years. Recently I noticed they have tons of the hardback version for just a penny on Amazon, so today I ordered it in hardback. I always prefer a hardback copy when I can get it, … [Read more...]

In The BNOTP Library: Martha’s Entertaining

I almost forgot to share a book from my decor library this evening. Painters are coming tomorrow to get started on pressure washing the house, decks and porch, all in preparation of painting them (the porch and decks) as well as repairing some damage done to the chimney by a mischievous woodpecker.

I also dropped the rating scale because I realized that I'm only going to be sharing those books that I own and really like.  So if I'm sharing it here, you know it's one I … [Read more...]

Remembering Turkey Hill, the Newly Renovated Iconic Home of Martha Stewart

Iconic Turkey Hill, even if you don't watch a lot of  television and haven't ever read any of Martha Stewart's books, you have probably heard of her wonderful, historic 1820 home in Westport, Connecticut. Actually, it's Martha's prior home since she sold it back in April of 2007 after having lived there for 30+ years. While doing a little online research for this post, I came across an old article in a … [Read more...]

Ummph! Martha Stewart Canceled, Again!

As you're running around today preparing for the big day tomorrow, here's a little silliness to give you a giggle.  Stop, take a few deep breaths today and know this:  It doesn't have to be perfect.  It doesn't even have to be edible.  It just has to be about gathering together with the ones we care about and love. Dear Family & Friends, I know that you were eager to accept our family’s invitation … [Read more...]
