Book of the Week

Growing up, this was one of my most loved Christmas books to sign out of the school library. I spent a lot of time in that library and I knew exactly where to find my favourites. I can still remember, so very many years later, which shelf Take Joy was on. Imagine my own joy when I received a copy of my own for Christmas in my teen years (thank you, Mom!) It is a classic, full of traditional Christmas tales, carols and traditions, and embellished with the loveliest artwork you ever did see. I am definitely planning to sit down with it one evening this week, to read a few stories, gaze at the beautiful watercolours of Tasha Tudor, and take some joy in the holidays which are passing by much too quickly.

  1. Looks like one of those old-fashioned books that just holds so many memories. I have one that my Gran always read to us from and it now sits on my shelf, although a little battered and bruised. They re-released it this year and I remembered my old copy instantly when I saw in in the shops. So many memories in those pages.
    Have a fabulous weekend xx
