Jane of Austin Cover!



Isn't it loverly? I'm thrilled to pieces over it - love the silhouette and Austin cityscape so much! It's available for pre-order, and you can read a summary on the book's page here.

Sorry the blog's been scarce, lately, things have been crazypants with the house and the book and trying to keep all the plates in the air as we prep for a move. But there are some fun events planned, so stay tuned!

The #SparkleHorseHunt2016 Book Giveaway

The Story: During a perfectly routine stroll through Homegoods with a friend, we turned a corner and stumbled upon this glorious beast.

My friend Liz, being awesome and posing so you can see how huge that thing is. 


Feast your eyes upon him, all ye who dare! At six-feet, this mirrored horse instantly topped our list of craziest things spotted. While I decided not to take him home (retailing, as he did, at $2,999.99), I did buy a selection of throw pillows and posted my photo of the horse to Facebook. Where, of course, became an instant internet sensation.

Long Weekend Rhubarb Upside-Down Cake



A short time ago, I asked on Facebook if people wanted to have a rhubarb or cherry recipe in the June newsletter.

And the answer came back - yes. More specifically, that there were good reasons for both. Cherries - so summery! Rhubarb - so southern! And my uncle in particular reminded me of my family's southern roots (my father's family hailing from Dallas, as they do).
