Thank you Little Augury
I get star struck a lot here at Blushing Hostess. Especially when amazingly talented and well-respected bloggers drop in to Blushing Hostess and leave a comment. Little Augury is one of those bloggers: Thoughtful, creative, talented, and singular. Little Augury is a reader herein and became a pal of mine through email.
One day I received the package you see here: You really know when a person has carefully read your work and understands your subject, voice, and perspective when they send you a gift like this.
The Epicuriean Collector, by Patrick Dunne (2002, Southern Accents) is a masterful work on the traditions and antiquities of the culinary world. It is thick with captivating, curious photos and lingers in your thoughts with its descriptions of long-ago cultured table sets and services.
Now I can rest assured that ProBlogger is incorrect when they say people only look at the pictures on every post.
Many thanks, Little Augury. Long may you entertain in great health, and with joy and laughter at every place setting.
