Books, Buttons & Random Musings...

Hello Lovelies!

So it's been busy as usual over here in the mill. I have been featured in a couple of beautiful treasuries and one of my circus photos was listed on Indie Spotting! Aren't these treasuries nice?




I have also created some fun little buttons for Twitter and Facebook that I'm using on the my blog because nothing fit my personality out there. Feel free to use these buttons on your own sites if they work for you, my treat!

If you're a book dork like I am, you get excited when the local library has its annual book sale. My library usually has a pretty good selection of fiction and medical books (because no one else wants medical books; I use the images for collage/drawing) and this year I was not disappointed. You can see my stash below... all for $9.50 thank you very much! I think my best 2 finds were an original printing of Stepford Wives (I also have an original Rosemary's Baby by the same author) and 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea because really, can you have too many printings of this book? I think not.


Oh! And have I discovered a wonderful seller on Etsy my Dearies. Babayagada has some amazing original illustrations straight from Israel. They're all beautiful and whimsical and the colors are great too. The one below is entitled Old Master. Check out this shop!


Let's wrap with a movie review, shall we? If you haven't seen the movie Popcorn, you're really missing out and I'm (somewhat) serious this time. I went in expecting total camp and I got a lot of camp, some creepy and some neat vintage movie props that I wanted to buy and put in my house. The basic plot revolves around a group of young folk who revitalize an old theater to have a movie marathon for some reason. Of course during the marathon, people get wacked and someone starts shooting a horror movie in real life. But there are some twists that make this a respectable flick and it stars Dee Wallace (star of Cujo, The Frighteners, and ET to name a few). She can't act but she's sort of hot and she's in everything so I've learned to live with her. Check it out!


I have a friend visiting next week so I won't be posting for awhile. Be good in my absence!

Until next time: unpleasant dreams...

Congrats on the treasuries!.. they say good things happen in threes!

I love book sales too.. we were just in Portland, Oregon and went to Powell's Books... the biggest books store ever.. I loved it! We spent hours in there and came out with some new and used finds.

What a great website! And a great book deal! I have so many now that I can't even fit them all on my bookshelf. Wonderful treasuries! Nice to meet another etsy artist.
