I have a lovely bit of news to share. I recently wrote a post for an awesome blog called Reading is Fashionable. I shared one of my favorite little bookshops in VanBuren, Arkansas. It is a sweet little shop. Please check out the post and the blog. I think you’ll like it.

I enjoyed this book immensely. It was interesting to see Paris through the eyes of an expatriate. Living in a different culture requires a great deal of adjustment. Sarah shares the dark, difficult times as well as the happy times. In the end Paris became her home and a place she loves. The journey is the one Sarah shares with all of us. There is much to learn, see, and experience. Paris fascinates me more than ever after reading this book. There are parts of life in France that I simply adore and others that I don’t think I would ever understand.
Here are a few things I fell in love with on the internet this week.
Can anything be better than a house made of bookshelves? I don’t think so! See more at the Kazuya Morita Architecture Studio.
I was simply blown away by this French apartment decorated in a Moroccan style. Tres magnifique!!! You can see more at 79 Ideas.
I am fascinated by The Burning House site. What would you take if your house was burning? This is the question asked by Foster Huntington. People gather their chosen items, photograph them, and submit it to the website. It is interesting to say the least. So much can be learned about the individual from the picture.
Here are a few things I have found this week which I love.
I think my wardrobe really needs a pair of Saddle Shoes. See more lovely pictures over at Behind the Curtain!
Lastly, I am super excited to hear that a biography of Myrna Loy is due out in October! This is a definite on my wishlist!! Please click here to learn more!
I am so excited!!!! I went to the bookstore tonight to look for a copy of the “Savvy Auntie” book by Melanie Notkin. She created the Savvy Auntie website which I’ve been a member of for some years. I knew it was possible, but until I found the book and looked for myself I just couldn’t be sure. I’ve been quoted in the book! My name is now officially in print! The book itself and the website are a celebration of aunthood. Both are for all of us who are aunties whether by relation or by choice. We love our nieces and nephews as if they were our own. We understand that they are looking to us for an example and that we are an important part of their lives. We honor our “little ones” and our relationship with them by being the best aunties we can be.
You can order your very own copy at BetterWorldBooks!
The other day we noticed these pretty little birds outside the window.
Aren’t they pretty? Hubby went straight to his computer and pulled a webpage to assist in identifying these little blue birds. I went to the bookshelf and pulled out this:
The copyright on this little vintage book is 1956. In a matter of minutes I identified the little birds as Indigo Buntings. Micah’s webpage was still loading.
