When my siblings and I reached a certain age we decided to make handmade gifts "only" for one another, as we really didn't need anything. I have received some incredibly lovely and meaningful gifts + luckily for me my siblings excel in craft areas that i don't (i.e.sewing + knitting). Since we started do this a half dozen years ago I can easily name every gift i have received from them, but prior to that I would be hard pressed to remember the specifics of the store bought gifts. I am glad you made the time to stop by the blog. J

Hey Molly, thanks! I am a firm believer in "library-testing" too! The only time I do not do this is when Sibella releases a title or Kaari of French General. The Tracy Porter I found at the thrift store, so the price was right for adding it to my bookshelf. I LOVE craft, DIY and decor books but find these past few years I have been donating a lot of the ones that have been on my shelf for years to make place for the tried + true volumes. If you have any suggestions--I would love to hear about them. Janice
