Thanks for joining me for Mailbox Monday this holiday weekend! MM was created by Marcia, who graciously hosted it for a long, long time, before turning it into a touring event (details here).
Tasha at Book Obsessed is hosting in July. Please stop by Tasha's busy blog, where she focuses on romance novels, with some mystery and suspense thrown in.
The cover of this new cheese book caught my eye when I first saw it a couple of weeks ago. Isn't it terrific? I got my copy last week and can't wait to learn all about the tradition of local cheese making here in the Pacific Northwest.
Pacific Northwest Cheese: A History by Tami Parr, published by OSU Press.
A friend of mine from my San Francisco days was in Portland for work and came over for an overdue visit. She was very sweet to bring me a couple of cool old books she found at Thea's Vintage Living.
The Thackeray is an old copy of Vanity Fair, which would be fun to read in this antique edition. The housekeeping book is a real hoot, and perfect for our new kitchen.
