We have made it to the middle of the week and hopefully an enjoyable, relaxing weekend it just over the horizon for all of you.
I came across Martha’s Vineyard Isle of Dreams, while reading book reviews in Teatime Magazine. I ordered it immediately, because I knew I’d love it. The novel begins in 1982, and that’s the year I graduated from high school, so an adventure of landing some place totally new sounds pretty wonderful, to the self I remember from that year;)
The book is so unique and sweet! A hardback, thick, and nicely done book, full of interesting pictures, adorable illustrations and photographs, the best quotes from great people, recipes, and the author’s story of healing and love. There is so much packed in this book, it deserves a special reading time, like finding time to chat with a friend over tea and biscuits I think. I would love to share more about the book, but in fairness to the author, I’ll just recommend this book to you. I think you’d love it! :)
I haven’t had the best luck finding good doily patterns to try, but I did download this little ebook. The designs are easy and quick, with only about fifteen rows for each doily. The easier patterns and I get along quite well. The difficult ones not quite so. I'm more of an old fashion paper book kind of person, but this ebook is written pretty well for its readers.
Well then, I wish you a beautiful day full of sunshine today. I’m thinking of all of you who visit her,e and I’m really hoping all is well where you are today. Remember to take a moment to pause and adore the beauty around you. It’s so comforting:) Blessings, Jeannine
P.S. I'm joining Ginny at Small Things today for her Yarn Along
