Nomi the Puppy wants to go outside every 5.2 minutes. And at night, I am EXHAUSTED. I might be too old to be raising puppies! I took down our winter window (sad face) but I've put up several Valentine's Day paper chains, which were a gift from this lovely lady. I think I need pink fairy lights to complete the look. But that might be too much. Did you all have a chance to check out my winter book stack? I'd like nothing better than to lie down and watch 5 hours of period British films or read for hours on end this weekend, but that never ever seems to happen, unless I'm sick, and when that scenario occurs, I'm usually too miserable to be able to happily read or watch anything. I guess maybe when I'm 80, I'll have time for all of that, eh? Maybe?
Found some cute things online this week:
A flower clock?
2015 Newberry award winners.
'The Artful Year' looks fabulous. Just published!
Babies eating ice cream.
A new 'Frozen' short film!!
Just tried these mini cookies and they are AWESOME. And so adorably small! (that means I can eat more)
A beautiful maple cake.
I'm totally excited to see this book when it comes out.
Cool Book of the Week: 'The Princess and the White Bear King' by Tanya Robyn Batt and Nicoletta Ceccoli is a charming version of one of my all time favorite fairy tales - 'East of the Sun, West of the Moon'. The story sometimes also goes by 'The Polar Bear King'. Whatever it's called, this tale of a maiden searching for her true love (who's been enchanted to take the form of a bear), in order to rescue him from a troll Queen, is one of my favorite stories! I bought this from one of my favorite online book shops, Barefoot Books, and I adore Nicoletta Ceccoli's art, so I thought it would be a worthy addition to my fairy tale collection.
Have a lovely weekend! Has anyone seen 'Strange Magic'? I wonder if it's any good. If you haven't seen 'Paddington' yet - GO! Julia and I looooooved it.
