Susan Branch ~ Heart of the Home

Do you like Susan Branch? This year I bought the 2011 Susan Branch Heart of the Home Calendar.

I love her illustrations.

And I love all the quotes, fun ideas, and uplifting thoughts. Every month is a special treat.

I always hang my calendar in the kitchen. Hanging inside my kitchen cupboard ~ that's where I keep track of all the things that need keeping track of!

In the kitchen ~ the Heart of my Home.

She is also one of my favorites!! I have many of her old calendars and all of her books (my favorite is JOY, christmas book) and she has a great life. living on both coasts (Calif and Martha's Vineyard, Cape Cod) and did you know that she never painted until her adulthood? Thanks for stopping by Pandora's Box, come again!

I, too, love Susan Branch. I have a few of her books and always enjoy receiving her e-mail newsletters. The calendar looks very cute and inspiring.

I love Susan Branch too. :) She's such a fun artist. Her fabrics are adorable too along with everything else that she does. :)

Susan has been a dear friend for years and years. I also love her sweetheart Joe Hall. He is one in a million.

When a worker at my publishing house unwittingly threw away a box containing 238 of my original illustrations for a new book, Susan was the first person I spoke to for comfort. I was devastated and she helped me through it. That afternoon, when I finally got up and turned to my garden for comfort, there by the gate sat a HUGE glass vase filled with white lilies, roses, and baby's breath nestled in ferns, a gift sent by Sue. Every time I smelled the sweet scent I FELT BETTER.

I'm happy you featured her calendar. They are definitely keepers, to be turned to for years for inspiration and fun ideas.

I am also her fan and I'm on Susan's e-mail newsletter list and facebook page. I always look forward to hearing her updates! She always changes the recipes on her website to reflect the season.
