Foxy Ladies

Come meet some foxy ladies at Fox Tale Book Shoppe..........






Does this book look familiar?






Well, it should! It was written by our talented Gollum, aka Michael Lee West.




She came to Woodstock, Ga. to the very cute bookstore, FoxTale. It was just a 40 min. drive from my house and I was thrilled to get the opportunity to meet her.






Here's Susan, Michael Lee, Debbie and a Ga. blogger that was also attending and joined our little group.







The store had foxes everywhere!








Couldn't help myself, had to take a picture of this chandy. Isn't it gorgeous?





I am so happy that I bought her cookbook, "Consuming Passions", it is like having Michael Lee there with you , just talking about her family and her southern roots. Of course the bonus are the recipes! They look great and remind me of my childhood. Definitely going to test some of these out on my bookclub!

She has such a witty way of writing and you'll feel like you are chatting with an old friend. Have you heard the expression, "Let them eat cake?"...well in this book you'll get to read about her experience eating DIRT!





Watch out FoxTales, I'm pretty sure I saw Susan stuff one of these sly little foxes in her purse for her Hunt themed family room.

Hi Rose...I enjoyed meeting you yesterday at our lunch...I hope you had a good time....I'm so happy to find your post today because I heard you all talking about the book shop but I didn't catch the name...I need to visit it, it looks so cute...and as for my friend that I was referring to when you heard us gossiping......there are just some things you don't discuss while eating lunch with someone and she doesn't know when not to speak!!

THANK YOU so much for sharing all this with us! I felt like I was there with you. I so wish I had been. I was over visiting Susan's blog about the lunch all the Georgia girls had & then seeing this I was jealous! I told her maybe this summer when we come through Atlanta I could meet some of my Georgia Blog Friends. Did you read/like the book Mermaids in the Basement by Michael Lee?

Any time we in blogland can pour over photos of our friends it's a real treat! The chandy you snapped had so many colored facets .. I fell in love with it. Gollum's cookbook is next on my list.

Rose, this sounds like so much fun! When I met Michael Lee, I was the only blogger at the bookstore. It was fun, but how great to also have other bloggers there. Where is a picture of you with the famous author? Love the pictures of that bookstore. What a neat place. laurie

Oh lucky you to have met our dear blog friend Gollum! I am so envious! I bet you had wonderful time.

I have not yet read that book. I'm going to see if they have it at the library. I am currently reading her American Pie novel.
