A Giveaway!

About a month ago, I won a giveaway through a sweet and entertaining blogger named Alexis from I need to confess. She had some great prizes! Among them was this beautiful book of works by Jane Austen. And you know when I am presented with the possibility of a new book, my mouth practically waters. So, yes, I chose the book . Isn't it a beauty?

Can you believe I hadn't yet owned anything by Jane Austen? Or that I haven't read Pride & Prejudice? I am slightly embarrassed to admit this since I have a degree in English, and well, it is practically basic reading in the literature world. Now that I think of it, I do recall Sense & Sensibility to be a required reading in one of my online courses. Did you put that together? Recall. Online course. Yeah, for me "distance learning" equaled "hardly learning."

Thanks again, Alexis for the beautiful book! I can't wait to bury my nose into the crisp, golden-edged pages.

While I have you here, aren't these just gorgeous? They are on my wish-list, and would be a lovely addition to my new book!

Cassie- You made those! They are absolutely beautiful!! You cease to amaze me with your artsy talent! Reminds me of our scrapbooking nights back before the babies were here!

Just wanted to stop by and check it out after you mentioned it on the phone! Wish we could get together more to do fun stuff like this! Once school is done- we will for sure!

Love you! <3

I found out about your blog through your sister Amber. I love Amber, she runs with me. Well, when it's warm anyway, we don't like the cold. I read at least a book or two a month and I would love one of these to keep track, right now I'm using an old grocery list in one book and a receipt in the other :)

This is a beautiful Blog. Thanks for the cookies. Hope I win a bookmark!

“You must write every single day of your life... You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads... may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.” ― Ray Bradbury
