Wonderful Reads!

It’s delightful as always. It’s the new issue of “Artful Blogging”. I love to read this magazine! The world of blogging has opened the door to creativity and everyone can participate! This is one magazine I read. I mean really read, not just skim the pages till I find something of interest.

Did you notice “Bitty Bird” in the photo above? This is my “artful” contribution to the photo. You’ll really see how pitiful my attempt is after you visit the blog I selected as my favorite from this issue of “Artful Blogging”. Just the name of this blog makes me want to visit and the photos? You be the judge! http://www.raisedincotton.typepad.com/.

And while I’m sharing my favorite reads, I found a new book by Tone Finnanger, “Sew Pretty Christmas Homestyle“. This is one designer I would love to meet! I LOVE everything she does. Her look is fresh, creative and delightful. Every single page of this book is beautiful. Every single page, including the table of contents LOL! It’s filled with projects I would make for myself.

With so many books flooding the market, it’s delightful to find one so unique!

I really need one of those angel geese (upper right corner). I may have to make one!

Have a great weekend everyone! Chelsea and I are going for a walk, all 7 lbs of her.

  • julia - Hi Anne,
    I think I have every book published in English (the German ones haven’t got that pretty covers and are much more expensive) – and I had the chance to have a look on the Norwegian ones that weren’t translated – heaven ;o). My copy of Sew Pretty Christmas… is on its way to me.
    Hugs, Julia

    P.S.: your Bitty Bird enlightens the picture just perfectly – it’s so cute!ReplyCancel

  • Jackie - Anne, I love the reads that you have currently on your list! They look like wonderful, inspirational books and tools for us to utilize.

    I am sorry to hear about Chelsea and her diet. I can’t believe that that poor little girl has to lose some weight! EEEEK! Hopefully, she will still be easy to find! Give her a pat on the head and hug from me…right now my lower lip is in a sad position for her!ReplyCancel

  • Nanette Merrill and daughters - That book looks great. I want more. I may have to get it too. I also subscribed to artful blogging but haven’t gotten my first issue yet. I look forward to learning great things.ReplyCancel

  • Java Venus - I LOVE your sweet blog! I giggled when I saw your photo of “Artful Blogging”….I am hopelessly and completely hooked on that magazine! And then when I read down the page even further, I saw the Sew Pretty Christmas…i just added that one to my wish list at Amazon.com! YAAAY! I can’t wait to get my own copy, now that I have seen it on your blog, too!

    Anyway, I just wanted to take a couple of minutes to send a friendly hello! Thanks for sharing all of your photos!ReplyCancel
