Book Meme from Dotti:

Instructions: Grab the nearest book, turn to page 123, and transcribe the 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th sentences.

The nearest book is that vintage cookbook. Here goes: "Pour into bouillon cups and chill until firm. Just before serving draw a fork through the jelly to break it up. Place a slice of egg in each cup. Garnish with lemon wedges, catchup or horse-radish."

It's pretty crazy that just 60 years ago, people were eating savory jello. Anyway, as usual I'm too shy to tag, but they're fun memes, and I'll edit this post to tag you if you want!


  1. This is a wonderful post and so much fun! I love the pictures. I've seen other posts such as this one and I'm wondering, why does everyone else have infinitely more interesting stuff in their purses and wallets than I do? LOL

    Your room is amazing. I love the wall hangings for your earrings, sunglass and broaches. How innovative! Just as brilliant as you are beautiful.

    Thanks for the visit. Isn't Miu Miu astounding? So meticulously designed and crafted. A beautiful line indeed.

    Have a wonderful day, my Lover-lee!
