You have to meet Liz Owen.  How cute is she?

And this is her daughter Jane — who was named after Jane Austen!  (Those cheeks!  Oh my goodness, those cheeks!)

And this is Liz’s wonderful book, My Not So Storybook Life.  I read it and wanted to be Liz’s friend.  So I emailed her.  (Don’t you love the Internets?)

Liz did a giveaway for my book on her blog this week, and I wanted to let you know about it before it was over — but I think it’s over tomorrow morning. :(  I wasn’t able to blog the way I wanted to this week.

But still, I think you will want to meet Liz, and see the beautiful pics on her blog, and read her lovely book.

If you need any more convincing, here’s her new “Weasley” china cabinet.
