Happy 100th Birthday, Julia

 A look at my bookshelf  reveals two copies of
 Mastering the Art of French Cooking.
A closer look at the smaller one with the blue dust jacket
suggests it may actually be a first edition!
I can't remember the details of their purchase,
but I'm absolutely positive it was either at a thrift store or garage sale.
Sadly, I haven't mastered the "art" yet.
I DID enjoy Julia, the movie!


  1. Julia was one awesome lady!

    xo, Bonnie

  2. I love old books, I have never tried French Cooking.
    Have a wonderful day.
    Hugs, Cindy

  3. Oh Rebecca. The Julia movie is what got me started on wanting a blog. I saw Jules writing into her computer and had no idea what she was doing. A blog? Not sure what it is, I thought, but I want one! Ha!

    Now, almost three years later, I know. It is my daily spurt of pure, unadulterated joy!

    Glad you got Julia's cookbooks! Susan

  4. I love old books, too. I don't have any first editions, though.

  5. Happy birthday Julia; what a charming and unique lady. I read two of her autobiographical books, well worth the read.

  6. I love Julia. I love to watch her old shows. I can remember watching them as a kid too.
