our shabby chic neighbour

Summer Hill has lots of fabulous shops and one that cannot be missed is Monica Trapaga's Reclaim.... She recently released a cookbook titled 'She's leaving Home - Favourite family recipes for a daughter to take on her own life journey'. As the title suggests she wrote the book after her daughter decided she was leaving home. It's a collection of tried and tested family recipes and stories.

What makes it special as that it doesn't have any styled photo images of food, instead it is beautifully illustrated by the super talented Artist Meredith Gaston. I'm really enjoying it and think you might too!

Her store is definitely worth a visit..... if you like all things vintage in that romantic kind of way.... and of course check out the book, Monica sells signed copies instore or is available in selected bookstores.
