Back to Back Challenge - Winners 2013

Waiting list reading..

It is so enjoyable to go to book sales,  and the prices are so good to go with.  My home library is overflowing...just the way I like it.  Right now though,  I am enjoying an old-fashioned audio book with Libivox readers whilst I do another jigsaw puzzle.

Also am enjoying 'Slow tv', via Netflix.  It is so interesting to watch these women knit and spin, in a sheep to sweater competition. Have a look?

Loved this!

This book is a gem.  The first two chapters ...were slow for me to get with.  But...after that ...wow, I loved it.  The novel is based on the true story (although this is a work of fiction based on the true story)  of two twin sisters born in Scotland around 1843. They traveled the world and really did discover a copy of the Gospels from AD 500.  I borrowed it from my library, now someone else is enjoying it I'm sure. Thank you Lynn Austin!

It's Frosty!

Look what the bakery had for sale today.  It's Frosty the Snowman sugar cookie.   And,  there were a few tiny snowflakes sifting down on the car.  I found this cookie so sweet...in every way...haha.

Around town..

 One of the small towns near us.  Hubby and I  noticed the quaint roof tops.....probably just roof fronts.  They discovered stained glass panels that had been painted? over and restored them on the florist shop above the glass front.  Below is an artist's app...I like to use.  So fun to use, and wouldn't it make a nice bookplate. I wonder how old these buildings are....

English all the way,

This is my very favorite magazine, published in England and chock full of homey things.  Like...pretty plates on the walls....in pretty display.  Lots of rich fabrics....floor length draperies...comfy, plump sofas....books, lots of them! Rocking chairs in the kitchen and glorious gardens and lands.

Cozy...

Cozy is one of my favorite things, whether it be at home with a good book, or with our Kitty Kat ...Violet on my lap purring.  Wishing you a   cozy day, while the rest of the fall leaves tumble down and reveal the beauty of the bare branches.

Just as I'd hoped...

We bought this charming, quaint gateleg table at a yard sale this summer and we stained the top only....a cheerful yellow.  Look how nice the puzzle pieces show up.  Just as I'd hoped!
