My shameful secret


This shelf is my shameful secret. I have volume upon volume of decorating books but this particular section is dedicated to the ones I haven't even read yet! I just received this copy of French General's book The French Inspired Home & even though I have this entire shelf of unread decorating books I couldn't resist the urge to buy just one more. I was lucky enough to pay just $4.99 for it (new!) so I guess I don't even need to justify it. And even though I am in the middle of reading another decorating book, as well as a novel and a decorating magazine, I was as happy as a schoolgirl when it came in the mail today. Since my sweet husband is traveling for work this week I will have the perfect excuse to curl up on the sofa after the girls go to bed & lose myself in the pages. Maybe I'll send the girls to bed early...

  1. Jen, you are a girl after my own heart! Nothing like curling up with a new decor mag or book after the kiddies are put to bed and while the hubby is away! Your new book looks fab - give us your review as I'm sure we'll want to pick up a copy too! Enjoy your quiet time and new eye candy!

  4. Hey Ladies! I'm really enjoying this book. I highly recommend it.

    Homedaisy- I got it through www.homestylebooks.com. I had earned enough points from purchasing books to get this one for $4.99. Lucky me! If you aren't already a member you can sign up and get this book as well as the new one I just posted about and a few more as well. I highly recommend the book club. I join often!

  8. This book looks so beautiful, I was online shopping for some embellishments at Frenchgeneral.com the other day and was thinking if I should buy it or not. Is it as gorgeous from the inside as from the outside?? An what a bargain to get for only 4,99 $ Lucky you! I also love curling up on the sofa with some great decoration books or magazines and I also collect them. Looks like we have a lot in common :D
