pretty yummy

A visit to Koralee Teichroeb's blog Bluebird Notes is always a treat.

A favorite image from Bluebird Notes

Koralee's simple but effective posts showcase her sunny outlook via cheerful quotes, delightful commentary and wonderfully styled displays of vibrant florals, foods and fabrics.

Blues and violets = sigh ...
I recall a post entitled {girls only} that included the following quote from Iris Murdoch:

One of the secrets of a Happy Life
is continuous small treats

I was so taken with those two lines that I included them in the Introduction of my book.

How very exciting for a couple of blogging pals to have our first books released around the same time! Koralee and I decided to send each other a signed copy and share about our books on our blogs.

Pink + aqua + ice cream!
This is one of my very favorite images from Koralee's scrumptious book, everything goes with ice cream. The book, which is a visual dessert, is a delicious extension of her blog -- filled with her beautiful photography, bits of wisdom, crafty ideas and of course, all kinds of inventive ideas for ice cream! The book also includes recipes from bloggers like Torie Jayne on charming "Meet my Friend" pages.

everything goes with ice cream exudes pure joy ... just like Koralee.
(I hope she produces a calendar someday!)

Cuz nobody doesn't like Koralee ...
{anyone remember the old Sara Lee jingle?}

Warmest congrats and much success and sprinkles to Koralee!

Absolutely...I'd "sprinkle" the motion...I don't know her personally but I feel that I do. I love her gift of humor, love and good wishes for all!
