I must admit that books and I, we don't exactly get along. I just don't find many books entertaining or interesting. To most of those beautiful looking books on the Borders Top 100 Shelving - you look so beautifully bound and I wish I enjoyed reading you but you don't seem to do anything for me. I do find the odd book which I love 'Tuesday's with Morrie', 'A Man Named Dave', 'The House of Spirits'... but sadly its rare.
So these are the things I have been reading. Nothing circa 1860. Nothing intellectual. Nothing sophisticated. Just piles of little words which inspire me to do stuff x
I have been reading.....this blog - New Dress a Day - is wonderful. Marissa posts a new dress which she has made, embellished or thifted for $1 a day.....for 365 days. Some of her 'nanna dress' revamps are incredible. Her blog has inspired me to something special with this $6 frumpster dress one day soon.
I have been also been reading..... crochet cowl patterns on Ravelry. I made one while in Tassie, it was flipping freezing in those mountains!!! I have my Adelaide Fringe Guide, but I have yet to have the time to read up on events -although my dad did take a feral green texta and excitedly squiggle around the Knitting Nancy exhibition I will be in!!!! We have a little blog over here if you are curious as to what woolen goodness we are busying ourselves with.
I have plans to read this Burda patten for a pretty dress within the next few weeks, at least before the summer disappears. Note: Being 6'2" does not mean you can easily find clothes to fit you in shops :P
And lastly - Inside Out magazine. I find it has nice furniture and usually the types of home decor I like. We are going to start drawing some plans for a TV corner unit for my clever dad to make for us! We do like the idea of selvaged wood panels on front of doors.
