The Turquoise Table, a review
The subtitle of this book by Kristin Schell is, "Finding Community and Connection in Your Own Front Yard". This book tells you how the author went from having a picnic table dropped off at her front lawn, painting it turquoise to look inviting, and eventually creating a world wide movement of building community by showing hospitality one turquoise colored table, chair, door, etc. at a time.
I must say that I thoroughly loved reading this book. It is not only her story but it contains stories from others in the States and around the world to inspire us all toward a non-Pinterest showing of hospitality.
The book is full of photos, ideas for using this concept in your own life, and... recipes! Of course, a book about showing hospitality and building community is better with recipes. I highly recommend this book for anyone interested in reaching out to others by slowing down, listening, and perhaps with a plate of cookies.
The Turquoise Table was provided by the publisher for the sake of review but the opinions are my own.
