With the sunny weather it was the perfect opportunity to get my camera out and practice. For me, the hardest part about blogging is photography. Finding the time to shoot projects, shooting when there is good light, learning how to use my camera properly, organizing photos. It's a struggle for me. The light was so great that I thought I'd take some shots of little vignettes around the house.
It was only after looking through them that I realized that each one contained a collection of books. I'm a bit of a book hoarder. They say not to judge a book by it's cover but give me a beautiful book and I'm sold. In fact, I've been know to pass up on buying a book that I want to read because I didn't like the cover. (Hey, someone will loan me their copy, right?) Nevertheless, I make a point of reading all the books I buy. If I haven't read it yet, I'll get to it!
I recently finished Love Anthony by Lisa Genova and it was a great read! She also wrote Still Alice which I loved. Next on my list is Left Neglected. I also bought my first wedding magazine (since it's that thing you do when you get engaged). I must say, it was a bit of a letdown. I think I'll stick to Pinterest for inspiration.
Books, books and more books! I loved Nate Berkus' latest and I adore my collection of Penguin Classics. I read them all as a child and would love to read them again. Of course, Anne of Green Gables is my favorite. I read it several times.
Okay, so really it's just a glimpse at a couple of cookbooks but I wanted to show you my cute new bowls that I picked up at Winners. I wish there was a fourth pattern but I settled for just the three.
Starting to add a few little summer details. They sit atop Domino and a couple of Penguin Classics. I read Persuasion but I haven't attempted Tess of D'Ubervilles. Be honest, should I bother? Is it a good one?
I reread The Great Gatsby in anticipation of the movie. I'm quite anxious to see it. Plus, it's the prettiest book cover around!
A golden vignette. I admit, these are all books I have yet to read but they look pretty together!
What about you? Are you a book collector? Read any good books lately?
