hello Monday...hello HOME...hello AWAY
...hello Monday posts are something I have been doing for some time now linking up with my friend Lisa Leonard and her fab-u-lous blog...
feel free to leave your BLOG link in a comment...how about some hellos...
My friend and Earth Angels' artist Julie Arkell has just released her second book..."AWAY"....a most lovely and fitting companion to her frist self-published book, "HOME"...
I adore everything about Julie's work. Her winsome and whimsical creatures, her love of timeworn fabrics, her sense of texture...sigh.
Hello Monday and hello putting this sweet and petite tome at the top of my reading list. Here's just a little peek:
Hello to wintery days and curling up with all those books on my "to read" pile...it's been too cold to even ski some weekends, so we've been baking and reading...and reading and baking!
Hello Julie, I miss you...
