Used Books Sign & Taking a Break!


I am taking a break from blogging for a few days. I love you all and will definitely be back. I need to focus on getting caught up on some things I've been procrastinating on (like my housework)! I get so caught up in making things that, well I could possibly be in the early stages of hoarding. I really don't want TLC showing up here in a few months offering me a TV contract! I have to say the extra money would be nice, but I do have some pride ya know! Better get busy and see you in a few, Tami


Searching the old barn for some inspiration. I found what used to be part of an old table leg. So...... what do you do with such a find? Make a sign of course!


 I am a book lover!  For me ,books will never be replaced by any electronic device. I want to hold a book and feel it's pages. Besides, what's more cozy than curling up with a good book? Only thing I can think of, is curling up with my granddaughters with a children's book .Reading is such a gift.



 My paternal grandmother's family album is in the photo above. This is the inscription inside for her and my Great Aunt Fern. The album is very brittle and doesn't hold many pictures, but it is still dear to me.



 Notice the title of the top book? Funny thing ,just about every Sunday growing up we went to Grandma and Grandpa's house for chicken after church!  Treat yourself to a book and a comfy chair! Hugs, Tami

Love it! And your right...Electronics will never place the feel of a good book....I like to read before going to sleep each night and the thought of a computer in the bed verses a good old book.....well there is just no comparison!
