Two great design books (now on my wish list)
How was your weekend? We had a glorious 5 day weekend. Thursday and Friday school was cancelled, not because of snow but because of the cold weather (about 30 below zero w/ wind chill). Let’s see . . . over the past 5 days, El & L and I were on the local news (very amusing), I saw three movies (Despereaux, The Bride Wars and Gran Torino. Still wanting to see Benjamin Button and Slumdog Millionaire), finished a cleanse, said goodbye to a dear friend who is moving to Africa, and finished off today with a little shopping.
Which brings me to books . . .books and journals, to be exact. I needed a new journal and was just sure that I was going to get the serious leather grown up looking ones from now on (in a pretty color, of course) but then I cam across this really pretty little Amy Butler journal at Anthro and could not pass it up. And then after that I saw this most perfect colorful union jack journal in Borders and there was no way I could just leave it on the shelf (and since I had a gift card it was no bother). Lastly, I stumbled upon The Gentle Art of Domesticity which looks very crafty, colorful and fun. I’m sure I’ll be writing more about once I have a good look.
