Short Hiatus - Give Away

My DB and I are going to be away visiting family and friends. I will have much to tell you when we return. Don't worry about Luna. She will be well cared for by a friend who will come and stay with her. They always have such a good time together.

While I am away I am posting this book as a give away. If you think you might want to read it just leave me a comment and when we return I will put the names in a hat and draw the lucky winner.  I read this book some time ago and was waiting for a good moment to share it.

This book tells how art was infused into the new world. George Washington was not only a great leader and General he supported the arts, or perhaps his wife. I thought it was a good read and you would enjoy it too.

I even have at least fifty magazines I haven't looked at yet! Oy.

Have a lovely time visiting family.
Thanks for a chance at the book as it does sound interesting. Think my DH might like it as well, history buff and lover of art that he is.

Hi Lisa, the book sounds fascinating, you can count me in as I love art and history.

BTW, you are the winner of my ATC "Red Maple Leaf"! I didn't have an email address, so I meandered to your blog to notify you - I'm glad to have discovered it!

I tend to be a lurker because of time issues, but I do like to browse my blogs at lunch and break times!
