August 28, 2015
I have a lot of number-themed items for you today. Except not every link, because I ran out of number themed links.
2 million pounds of turkey? Um, that's a lot of turkey.
11 YA novels not just for kids.
10 Festive Fall art projects for kids.
6 tips for cleaning naturally.
10 wall-mounted shelving systems.
Oh Terrain! Oh autumn! I'm dreaming of this cordial, this candle, and this book. (that's 3 items, in case you're now obsessed like I am with whatever I was trying to accomplish with this list.)
Masterpiece Theatre's fall schedule. (we've abandoned the numbers now. carry on.)
Tips for happier weeknight dinners. (no idea how many tips.)
Chalkboard gift wrap.
Why yes. I would indeed like a Through-the-Forest Willow Basket. (just one basket.)

Cool Book of the Week: 'The Water and The Wild' by K.E. Ormsbee and Elsa Mora. Gah, I don't really know quite what to say about this one, except I must have it. I am going to have it. I think a Christmas present for Julia has just presented itself to me. (this IS the year I shop early.) Magic, magic, magic. Alternative world a la Narnia, a mysterious letter writer and wish fulfiller, a little girl trying to save her sick friend, magical beings, an apple tree that somehow is tied to granting birthday wishes....go check out the link to read more about this spectacular-sounding plot! Suggested as an independent reading story for grades 5-7 or earlier as a read-aloud.
