I must say written correspondence is a lost art, and one I find myself guilty of. I think it's always special when you receive a written note from someone. You know they have taken time out of their busy life to sit down and express their thoughts...that means a lot. I think everyone should have nice quality social stationary at the ready. Whether its a simple thank you or just a quick note... nice stationary is a must. Mr. Boddington does stationary well. I use this stationary, more specifically, the Wolfgang pictured above. Check out Mr. Boddington's work, they do beautiful, classic stationary, oh and gorgeous Christmas cards and invitations. Now, I'm going to place my order, cause I'm running low..

~ Blogging Book Club ~ Week 3

Watch CBS News Videos Online

Well, I hope your enjoying "The Help" and your having a hard time putting it down. I found this interview with Kathryn Stockett conducted by Katie Couric that discusses " The Help" and sheds tremendous light on the book and story. It's a bit long but a very, very good interview. Let me know how the book is progressing!

It's Monday so I thought it appropriate to show you some beautiful images to start the week off right. I have been a fan of Barry Dixon's work for sometime now. I friend of mine worked with him on a project and told me about his designs ,as well as, the first class guy he is and I have been a fan ever since. I passed Mr. Dixon this past weekend on the street in High Point but didn't have the chance to speak. So, I thought I should do a post about his work. He uses space very well and in a way that adds interest to the space. He also has the ability to make a space feel very warm without lots of busy accessories. Beautiful,classic, timeless design sums up his work perfect. For more information check out his website. He also has a book appropriately entitled "Barry Dixon Interiors" that is on my list of books to purchase....I swear that list is a mile long! So here's to Monday, have a good one!

~Blogging Book Club -~ Week 1

As you know the blogging book club is well under way and I hope everyone is enjoying The Help. Hopefully, you are beginning to understand the characters as they develop and are having a hard time putting it down. The characters really come to life fast, at least they did for me.
It took Kathryn Stockett five years to right her debut novel and it was rejected by at least 45 literary agents. I'm so glad someone took a chance on this novel because, not only is it a great read, but I think it sheds a lot of light into the social dynamic of the early 1960's.
Please comment and let everyone know how the novel is progressing for you. Also, it not to late to start the novel and join in!

As your reading this post I'm on my way out of town heading back to my alma mater for homecoming weekend. I'm really excited, its always a great time going back and seeing old friends and attending the game. I posted some pictures above that remind me of collegiate life. I love the preppy ensembles and I am head over hills for that turtle neck sweater, but if you know anything about me you know the last thing I need is another sweater!
So, I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and lets do it again next week!

Lets Get the Party Started!

Today is the day! The book club officially gets under way. I'm very excited about it. Its starting small and I think that's a good thing. The book will be an excellent read to carry us through October. I understand everyone reads at their own pace and we all live busy lives. I also understand this will be a very loose format for a book club, but I think by it being online it allows for that. So, with that said Tuesday will be our official Book Club Day.

I will post on Tuesdays about the book and I encourage you guys to post comments about the book along the way - message board style. I really hope you get behind this book and enjoy the club. If you have any questions or input feel free to comment....Also, blog about the book and the club as well...the more the merrier!

Let the Book Club begin!
