July 31, 2015
Got an extra long list because I missed last week:
I'll follow anything named 'lunchlady'.
This was a fun read.
This is my family.
This was also a fun read - thoughts on Irish summers.
Love this photo idea so much. (I'm toying with the idea of doing this with a film camera of some kind for a month. And since I'm trying to teach myself more about shooting film, the first batches of photos are certain to be very sh**** indeed.)
THIS BOOK - your summer reading for grownups. You can read more here.
Teen room decor.
A YA fiction retelling of Macbeth? Sign me up.
Look at this nice dinner, complete with dessert.
A storybook Vermont farm. (Love the plaid sofa!!)
Iced Oatmeal Cookies.
Cool Book of the Week: Did you all see my Pioneer Girl post? Well here's more behind-the-scenes Little House on the Prairie drama for you. Have I already talked about this? I feel like I have. Oh well, if I have, here it is again - 'A Wilder Rose' by Susan Wittig Albert is a book I read a couple of years ago, and it's fiction, but inspired by real life events and letters and conversations. It's the story of how Rose Wilder (Laura's daughter) came to edit the Little House books and how much she shaped them into the creations we know and love. And it delves into the fairly intense emotional relationship between Laura and Rose. It's a GREAT read, and if you're an adult fan of the books who wants 'more', you need to give this one your time.
