I got my latest e-newsletter from author/illustrator Susan Branch today (the link to her blog is above). I love her books. The beautiful writing you see inside them is not a computer font but Branch’s actual handwriting and all the illustrations are largely self-taught artist Branch’s own charming watercolors.
Branch has written a variety of books and calendars over the past 20-plus years celebrating holidays, seasons, friendships and girlfriends. I am happy to say that I own a number of them.
She has a lot of great recipes, but, as an editorial review on Amazon says, “the true theme of the books is family, love, friends and the celebration of life.”
Branch’s website also offers a variety of notecards, kitchen and household items and personal accessories for purchase. But you can enjoy all the goodness of her website and e-newsletters without spending a dime. That’s a bargain!
