Add To Shopping Cart

So, the craft-o-rama weekend was good but not quite as productive as we expected. We didn’t get to try out our silkscreen press but that’s because I still had to design what I want to make. I had the idea but I needed to use Photoshop to make my design and I’m definitely a beginner when it comes to that program. My husband helped me a lot and hopefully next weekend we can finally use the press. I can’t wait to show you what I made – I hope it turns out like I imagine.

Aside from that and meeting up with friends, I did a bit of organizing, a bit of reading and a lot of wishful shopping. I got two catalogs in the mail last week, Hesperus Press (unfortunately their website seems to be down) and BasBleu, so just like I used to go through catalogs when I was a little girl and mark up all the toys I wanted, I put a check by all the things I want from these. I think it’d be easier to check the stuff I don’t want!

Have to you seen these catalogs? I love ’em. Here are a few of the items that I’d love to have.

From Hesperus Press:

  • The Heir by Vita Sackville-West. A novella about an insurance salesman waiting for his inheritance.
  • The Lawyer’s Secret by M.E. Braddon. Another inheritance story but this one about a young woman who will be surprised by the conditions of her uncle’s will.
  • A Simple Story by Leonardo Sciascia. A tale of corruption, the mafia and a small Sicilian village.

From BasBleu:

  • BookSlings. They are bookmarks and pen holders. How cute.
  • The Comfort of Strangers by Ian McEwan. “The story seems enshrouded in fog, like a film noir in black-and-white or an unsettling dream.” I like the sound of this.
  • Thornyhold or The Ivy Tree by Mary Stewart. Family intrigue, English countryside and a dash of romance.

Now off to relax with some books.
