Valuable Books For The Home
It's Thursday already. How can that be? Good morning to you friend. Since we've lost all our Borders stores in the area one had been replaced with a temporary clearance book shop. It's not much to look at but it's fun to wander around now and again. I found three very discounted books that I thought would be great to add to my creative library.
Here they are:
1) Applique Your Way by Kayte Terrry
2) The Personal Organizing Workbook by Meryl Starr
3) Soft Furnishings by Paragon Publishing
Applique Your Way includes 25 patterns and projects using all kinds of charming appliques. There are so many fun, creative ideas to spice up your wardrobe and home style. Here are a couple of my favorite.
And lastly, this $2 gem, Soft Furnishings. While it's a bit outdated as far as photography and styling go, it covers almost all the basic home soft furnishings.
Bookstores can be a big money eater and I've become more selective about what I buy. At a great discount, these three books offered some helpful basic inspiration to make a lot of changes around the home and keep things updated and interesting for years to come.
