Lots of new reading

Christmas wishes do come true. Especially if they are amazon wish list wishes. :)  My wonderful best friend Trisha got me Modern Vintage Style by Emily Chalmers. I can't wait to dive into this one.


My in-laws in Hawaii got me a few from a local bookstore called Fly Leaf Books when they were visiting during the Thanksgiving holiday.  The first one was not on my wish list, but a wonderful choice. They know I love to craft, so this one is very inspirational. I already skimmed through and found some that might be interesting.  Weekend Handmade by Kelly Wilkinson looks like it will be a lot of fun.


Ah, Deborah Needleman, one of the editors of my all time favorite magazines Domino takes a look at design in a book called The Perfectly Imperfect Home. This one is sure to be a page turner.


And I saved the best for last. The awe-inspiring blog by Grace Bonney called Design *Sponge in book form! I've read to page 44 so far, and am very impressed.  I've already replicated one of the ideas that I'll share with you tomorrow.  I can hardly put this book down, but alas I have a family to take care of so eventually I'll finish it.

My in-laws, deciding that they would prefer to get books from a local bookstore (bless their hearts) instead of Amazon.com, chose these three books. And you can't get a signed copy of Design *Sponge from Amazon. Or maybe you can I dunno. But it's pretty cool that I have a signed copy.  As a side note, Grace Bonney started a blog similiar to mine in 2004 and now she has a book out. Maybe my blog will go far? Wouldn't that be cool?


Hope you had a wonderful Christmas like we did here. Now it's time for me to go read.
