It's true, I love books. My daughters Juliet (4) and Lucia (6 months) and I visit the library regularly and check out about 30 books a week.
This blog started as a way to keep track of the books we love and Juliet's reading journey. It's sort of evolved into a creative outlet where I not only share about the books we love in the form of reviews and thematic book lists, but also via book-inspired crafts, decorating, and nursery art.
I love curling up with a good story and I am captivated by gallery worthy illustrative art. Children's books are my muses and I am constantly digging up new (to me, at least) authors and illustrators that inspire me to create children's crafts, holiday celebrations, and art.
Right now, Juliet and I are working on a Flower of the Month project. Each month, we pick a new flower to craft together. Guess what April's flower is....the tulip! Can't wait to share it with you.
While the library is the main support of my book-addiction, I also regularly visit our local goodwill in the hopes of finding vintage gems at rock bottom prices.
I like digging up stuff like this:
Beautifully illustrated books. This one is Thumbelina, illustrated by Pablo Ramirez. I used it as art in my daughter's nursery.
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you'll be back--the easiest way to keep up with me is via my facebook page.
I'm also on twitter. But I'm not very good at it. I just learned about hashtags. Like yesterday. #twiliterate
And of course, you can subscribe or follow via google-friend connect.
But facebook--I'm good at that. I share links, update my status, and share pics from time to time. Really. I get facebook. I promise.
Leave a comment and a link to your blog! I'd love to visit.
