Books are make the BEST presents. Actually, book tokens make the best ones! That's what I got this Christmas and I brought the new Jamie Oliver book - a hero of mine. I also got Vintage Crafts, The Crafters Companion (a MUST for all you crafty blog girls) and Amy Butlers Institches.
I've always wanted to own a little book shop ever since watching Antony Hopkins in 83 Charring Cross Road many years ago.
A belated Happy New Year to you Dons.

Good luck with all that reading Donna.

I bought myself 'The French Inspired Home' by Kaari Meng just before Christmas.

Hi Donna, looks like you've got some great reading there! No books for me this year I'm afraid - but I'm sure I'll find some to buy! Clare x

Hi Sweetie

I'm wanting to send you an email thanking you for all my wonderful birthday presents but I don't know your new email address. I'm sure you have given it to me verbally but that isn't the same as having it written down - my poor little brain can't cope.

Love you .......... ~(:o})=

Hi Dons!

I'm back.

Belated Happy New Year to you and your lovely family!

Since we moved we have been unable to get broad band and blogs take SO SO LONG to download on dial up that I just didn't bother. ANyway, today we had it fixed - only took a month! (TCH!)

Anyway, just checking in.

Lots of love

thats a lot of books you got there!! Wow! I love books too! I'd like to grow a craft library. I had one but got fed up with "clutter' and donated them to the library. Only to regret it several years later. I got rid of the wrong clutter.
Thanks for commenting on my blog. ((I buy NEW clearanced clothing just for the fabric. I never wear the stuff. You can't go wrong for a 1$ right?))

I love books and I love it when people give books to my two girls. Books are the only gift I don't wonder where to put or what I need to give away to make more room. The girls are reading the Lemony Snicket books right now since they got another book from the series for Christmas.

It looks like you got a wonderful selection. Will you be giving book reviews on the more outstanding ones?
