|Pull up a chair inside or out on the deck. Don't worry about feeling underdressed (I happen to be in sweats at the moment) In a moment, you'll find out who this lovely woman is!
Welcome to the Party!
I know. I know.
We are partying fools this month!
Lisa, Gina, Dina and now Jen.
This week we are celebrating
the release of Jennifer ALlee's
A WILD GOOSE CHASE CHRISTMAS.
Have you heard about the brand new Quilts of Love line from Abingdon Press? If not, you will!
We've moved the party to the west coast because of The Storm.
That fabulous Manhattan apartment I'd picked out is on the 31st floor and if the electric goes out...no water...
So, I've rented out a nice little Malibu beach house for the week.
If we can ask Bradley Cooper to serve Red Velvet Cake, I figured I could afford a beach house on the earnings from my last modeling assignment. (It was for Halloween and I didn't spend more than five minutes in MakeUp! Who knew?)
We didn't bother with Halloween decorations. Orange is not my color, darling!
But we've done a little Christmas decorating and we've got the holiday music playing out on the deck.
The deck. That view! Those eyes. I mean. What a view!
Ho ho ho!
Yes, we have a nice buffet of healthy foods. After all it's California and I haven't had guacamole since...yesterday. Please! Mingle! And try one of the desserts on our dessert table.!
Our wait staff is eager to assist, but they are taking turns decorating the tree, cooking and keeping the kitchen clean (I love that part!). And
taking walks along the beach. Sigh.
Some guys just look so at home in the kitchen, don't they?
and in case you are wondering who Jen pictured for her
Christmas hero in A GOOSE WATCH CHRISTMAS...
"Hey Girl! Yeah, you. You didn't think I'd miss your party, did you?"
Did you notice our little Hollywood theme today?
A lot of it has to do with this woman, the lovely Marie Staats.
She happens to be the inspiration for Grandma Isabella in Jen's story...
because THIS IS JEN'S GRANDMOTHER!
A real Hollywood gal who danced in Show Biz until she met the man of her dreams...
Don't you love these photos?
Stop by throughout the week as we celebrate Jen's release with a look at the history of quilts as an art and form of story-telling, and some more on Abingdon Press. We'll be here all week celebrating!
|All this sugar is making my heart race...
We wish you the best on your latest release!
