Monday April 18th Meme's



It's Monday and time to show some Blue's with Smiling Sallys Blog Meme - Blue Monday.
Today I found some pretty Easter tree and centerpiece to share with you all.
I found these on Better Homes and Gardens home page.
Hope you all have a very Happy Easter Holiday!





I haven't participated in this meme at Sheila's Book Journey for awhile since my grand daughter was born in March and I have missed it. I host book club at our library and I started a great family saga called -The Moonflower Vine by Jetta Carlson. It takes place in Missouri and that is
where I live so that makes it even more interesting.


Product Description
A timeless American classic rediscovered—an unforgettable saga of a heartland family

On a farm in western Missouri during the first half of the twentieth century, Matthew and Callie Soames create a life for themselves and raise four headstrong daughters. Jessica will break their hearts. Leonie will fall in love with the wrong man. Mary Jo will escape to New York. And wild child Mathy's fate will be the family's greatest tragedy. Over the decades they will love, deceive, comfort, forgive—and, ultimately, they will come to cherish all the more fiercely the bonds of love that hold the family together.


About the Author
Jetta Carleton (1913-1999) was born in Holden, Missouri, and earned a master's degree at the University of Missouri. She worked as a schoolteacher, a radio copywriter in Kansas City, and a television advertising copywriter in New York City, and she ran a small publishing house with her husband in Santa Fe, New Mexico. The Moonflower Vine is her only published novel.

I have a copy of BH & G magazine, but I haven't taken the time to go through it. Now, I'm curious.

Love these blues!

Happy Blue Monday, Joy.
