Let's Bring Back



Smart, stylish New Yorker Lesley M. M. Blume, woman-about-town and author of a handful of quirky children's books, is my new hero(ine).

Have you read her delightful compendium Let's Bring Back? If not, I'm afraid I must insist that you buy it immediately. I don't just love this book, I want to live in it! I would eat it if I could, alongside some cold berry soup and original-recipe Girl Scout Cookies. Mmmmmm....

This is so funny... I accidentally stumbled across this book last weekend and was fascinated. I wanted to buy it because I thought it would be great for brainstorming out of the box ideas for writing. I didn't buy it, but this is prodding me again!

E., I know this book will be right up your alley!

Hmmm, how interesting. I'll have to take a look at this woman, and the book you recommended. I've been really into childrens books lately-I have a son, so I read a lot, but I'm also a writer and have been considering writing childrens books.
Great recommendation.

Also, original recipe girl scout cookies sound really intriguing.

Oh, I should have known you would know Lesley M.M. Blume. This video is charming, delightful, wonderful. I have GOT to have that book. Did you adore, "Cornelia and the Audacious Escapades of the Somerset Sisters"? Thanks for sharing this.

Relyn, I haven't read "Cornelia..." yet, but it's definitely on my amazon wish list!

Best wishes,
Natasha.
