Library Night

So sorry I slacked off last week with no library post but I actually had NO books waiting for me.


Conscious Style Home by Danny Seo piqued my interest after finding his column in back issues of Country Home magazine. He actually has 5 or 6 books in print and a website. He has some great recycling project ideas and so I thought I’d check out his home book. 


Two brand new (& long awaited) books I’m not allowed to keep for more than 7 days (unfair when it’s MY turn, which you know already). And believe it or not, I don’t always check out craft/home decor/cooking  books.

This weekend I actually read a NOVEL, The Crowning Glory of Calla Lilly Ponder. For everyone who loves Southern literature, this book takes place in La Luna, Louisiana along with a few years of New Orleans living. It’s definitely a “chic” book and follows the author’s style of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood books.

And being Tuesday, a quick stop at my favorite thrift store…

A steal for $1.99!


Children’s games are half-off every Tuesday so how could I pass up these adorable mini playing cards for $1.00?? 4 decks of them were included in this game which I’d never heard of.


And in this box…


beautiful, embossed PAPER!!


Now I just have to dream up the most perfect project so I can incorporate these gorgeous papers!!

Hope you had a beautiful Tuesday!


  1. Did the book make you think of Jodie? Just kidding. I will have to read that one. Thanks for the library list once again! Do you have any of your swaps finished? I am beginning to panic, which is the only way I get things done, hee hee. Hugs, Pam

  2. Nice score on those beautiful papers.....I missed your library night even if it does come up so quick each week.
