Susan Branch Calendars
I usually have my calendars by now, but not this year. I'm hoping that I will be able to find a Susan Branch 2011 calendar. I'm a freak about saving calendars, and hers are too special to toss. I guess I really do save almost everything!
I fell in love with the artwork of Susan Branch the very first time I saw something she'd done. I'm not sure when Country Living Magazine first began featuring her pages. I saved them, and I just recently came across a couple of them.
And Blueberry Cobbler:
I was such a fan that, of course, I had to have her books. Since her very first , "Heart Of The Home" in 1986, I have purchased nearly every subsequent book she has written and illustrated, and I'll definitely do an entire post about them one of these days.
I love her style, and the fact that she hand-letters all of her text, as well:
Such detail, and just beautifully done.
Yes - I'm definitely going to have to try to find one - and SOON!
(I will probably end up ordering one from Amazon.)
