Top Five Tuesday – Super Fun Books


Fictitious Dishes
by Dinah Fried

Fried creates and photographs meals fashioned from the novels of her selection (classics of course). Quite clever and innovative! We listened to her speak at the Providence Public Library and she was great!

Advanced Style
by Ari Seth Cohen

This concept started as a blog and blossomed into two books. It is jam packed with fabulous ladies in fabulous fashion. Nothing run-of-the-mill here!


F in Exams
by  Richard Benson

Hilarious!!! This tiny book is full of real-life test answers that are so ridiculous you will laugh your butt off (well maybe if you’re a teacher you won’t) but I find it funny!!!

 

Dog Years: Faithful Friends, Then and Now
by Amanda Jones

Before and after photographs of dogs. Just precious. If I need to explain why this is great you are clearly not a dog person and I don’t have time for you!

And finally one of my MOST FAVORITE BOOKS OF ALL TIME:

Dear Photograph
by Taylor Jones

Once again we have before and after photos, but presented in a unique way. Take a photograph from the past, line it up at the exact location today and see the difference. Oh memories!!

 

Tradition & Reflection

We just finished the season of tradition and reflection right? Although, I feel Christmas is so clouded by retail stuff that we kind of lose sight of the reflection part. My husband and I have a little tradition of our own. At the end of the year I make up a photo album. It contains our favorite photos I have saved throughout the year. When the albums arrive we take out the previous years albums and view them all. Sure it takes a while but it brings us for a trip down memory lane. This helps if you’ve had an especially bad year. It is a reminder of a fresh new start with adventures ahead.

Cheers!

 

Home Decor Video

Here’s my video on home decor. I do enjoy looking at books & magazines about home decor from my local library. It is great way to get ideas without getting sucked into Pinterest. I certainly don’t fit into any of the categories in the books, but I guess I am somewhere between eclectic and book/photograph hoarder?!

I’ve been binge-watching the Youtube channel Do It On A Dime. She is REALLY into shopping at the Dollar Tree. I LOVE Dollar Tree but usually only go for the few “old faithfuls” like tin foil, Apple iPhone products, paper plates etc.  But she really has a knack at finding things that look quality! Well done!

Enjoy!
