Etsy Lust

I'm sure the handful of people that read this blog are familiar with Etsy. I was browsing tonight and found a local Seattle area Etsy shop that sells knitting stuff, check out this cool messenger bag! Oh, how I want one. It would put an end to the jumble of knitting supplies I throw into a canvas tote and carry around. I really love the squirrel background print on this one. I don't have a baby, but, this baby hat is too cute. I can't really wear most jewelry because of nickel allergies, but there is some amazing stuff here, here, and here, (oooh, I could wear this, sterling silver doesn't have nickel. This shop reminds me of my childhood and my dad, except much cooler, of course. Frida and Diego earings here. One more shop for now, here. Now I think I should get some sleep.

book meme

Meme grabbed from Mimi :)

1. What book have you read in the last six months that has really stayed with you? Why?

Well, right now I am reading, "Animal, Vegetable, Miracle" by Barbara Kingsolver. It's very inspiring so far

2. What is one of your favorite childhood books?

I'll have to echo others on this, the "Little House" books. I read them over and over.

3. Do you have a favorite book of the Bible? Do tell.

The Gospel of John. Also the Epistle to the Hebrews.

4. What is one book you could read again and again?

There's a lot that I have read over and over, see above, and the Harry Potter books, Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte. I also love to read cookbooks. :)Oh, and how could I forget, Patrick O'Brian's Aubrey-Maturin series (though I've only completed the first seven so far).

5. Is there a book you would suggest for Lenten reading? What is it and why?

There's a few, Great Lent, First Fruits of Prayer- The Canon of St Andrew, and The Arena.

And because we all love bonus questions, if you were going to publish a book what would it be? Who would you want to write the jacket cover blurb expounding on your talent?
probably a cookbook because I am terrible at writing and have no interest in writing a book, but I love to cook. Or photography.
