There are so many of us in my family, and that is a very good thing. We draw names at Christmas and that is also quite excellent—especially since my sweet sister-in-law, Lisa, ended up with me.
Here’s my Christmas Haul. (Thanks, Lisa.)
I don’t even have to open a book to feel joy. I just sit and look at the stack and smile.
As if that’s not enough, Lisa pulled together all the things I need to complete a project in Grace Bonney’s Design Sponge at Home and included them in a ziplock bag, as a part of the gift. How thoughtful—and how fun—is that? Like getting batteries included.
Here’s the video for that project in case you want to DIY.
It is going to be a very Happy New Year, indeed.
30 Days of Joy
I have an autographed copy of Mrs. Darcy and the Blue-Eyed Stranger. Great fun to hear Lee Smith read The Southern Cross story. Required reading for our next gathering of the Wise Women.
Wasn’t it the BEST idea to include a project? I plan to get busy with it this afternoon!
What a beautiful gift! The top two are on my list of books to read.
I started The Art of Fielding and am loving it!
