i received “one thousand gifts“, a book by ann voskamp.
and i started into the first few pages last night.
i like books.
old books, new books,
i ordered this book, “water paper paint“, by heather smith jones,
after visiting her blog for awhile. i like checking-in on what she’s
been doing or seeing as it relates to art.
the cover of the book actually feels like watercolour paper.
the pages are soft and smooth
and filled with photos.
i don’t think this one is going on the shelf right away.
it calls to be felt and looked at.
this is a little house garland made from two 1942 children’s books.
one book being peter rabbit and the other mother goose.
the creative artist is chris theiss of hutch studio in la conner, washington.
i was visiting deborah at kickcan & conkers, where i noticed that she was
having a give away for the garland, so i hopped right on it.
i was hoping to win, because i really liked it…and i did!
and now it’s here… all ready to hang :-) thanks to deborah and chris!
