Getting Lost in a Great Book

Reading has always been a favorite hobby of mine. Enjoying a great book is a really good way to forget about our troubling times. It’s like a vacation in a box! My latest favorite read is “Erasing the Past” by Author Geri Dreiling, an attorney from the St Louis area. As a member of an older population group, the subject matter of her book was particularly interesting to me…… it deals with a solution to an aging face. 🙂

Absolutely loved this beautifully crafted story of love over the course of main character’s Joe and Kate’s marriage and life together. The story line will keep your undivided attention as it travels back and forth from the past to the present chronicling their day to day routines and marriage struggles. The skin cream development, and Kate’s willingness to participate in the lab study from Joe’s work, helps fulfill wants and needs of them both. Joe is not keen about the plastic surgery that Kate wants, so this is a win/win for them both. Work struggles and daily trials and tribulations will keep you on the edge of your seat. Especially the health and marital emotions in their long standing marriage. But perseverance and commitment win in this story!

Thrifting Find……..Display Jackpot!

I’m always looking and searching for unique display pieces for my shop! I found this cutie at a local antique place and I just couldn’t resist it. It’s a mini easel back bulletin board. And it’s just perfect for notes, jewelry, decorative pins or antique brooches. I’m using it to display some jewelry at the shop. But it’s small enough that I can also take it and use it on my display table at shows I do from time to time.

It’s just the right color too…..especially love the fabric they used on the padded part of it!

And I only paid $20 for it…………couldn’t go wrong at that price!

Ok, so now to my favorite thing in the world……….what are you reading this week? I’m partially thru Jodi Thomas’s book, “Mornings on Main”. The book is set in a quilt shop, in the small town of Laurel Springs, Texas. It’s very heartwarming as the main character, Jillian, helps the aging quilt shop proprietor, catalog all her quilts and retire from the business. I’m about a third of the way thru it and cannot put it down. Enjoying the small town vibe and all the engaging characters. Looking forward to reading more of Jodi Thomas’s books. This is the first book I have read by her. Can’t wait to read the rest of them!

Hope everyone has a lovely 4th of July week! We’ll be at work most of the week, then relaxing on the 4th. What are you all up to on Independence Day?

Who is Your Favorite Author?

I love to read and one of my favorite authors is Wendy Wax, who lives right here in the Atlanta area. All her books are always so fun to read. Makes me relax too, like a mini-vacation!

I found this copy of “A Week at the Lake” at our local Goodwill. One of my favorite things to do is to look thru the book department at salvage places. You can really find some great reads, in excellent condition. This particular book would be an excellent one to take on vacation. It’s easy to read and just flows.
