Reading Books and Magazines!

I saw on a blog I was visiting this widget showing very nice Books and I had to check it out.

When I saw I could share with you MY favorite Magazine and Books I had to get this also. I love it! It rotates and there is a large version at the bottom of my page. I love to read and this is a fun way to share the Books I own and some authors I know.

I met Lisa Kettle with the "Altered Art Circus Book" many years ago on eBay with the Fairy Zine group. She has grown into the most talented artist and does shows and events all over the country now.
It has been my pleasure to watch her dreams come true as she has grown away from eBay to her own web and blog site. why don't you take a look at her book? You will be delighted!

Another author I have met is Sue Whitney of "Junk Beautiful: Room by Room Makeovers with Junk market Style by Sue Whitney " and "Junk Beautiful Outdoor Edition (Paperback)". I got both of her books in Texas last spring and she autographed them for me. I treasure them and the tips on creating with found objects which is my goal to make mixed media with old vintage this and that. I even got another on eBay that was an older book she had.

"" The Salvage Sisters' Guide to Finding Style in the Street and Inspiration in the Attic (Paperback) I found on Facebook and they have a delightful book I still need to get along with my other selections that caught my eye.

I did subscribe to "Mary Jane's Farm Magazine" and I adore it along with "Country Living" I have received for years now. That is how I met the Junk Gypsies that I had so much fun with last year in Texas.

I also met Robin Brown ( Magnolia Pearl) who I was delighted to meet. She had this book I also got autographed "A Bit of Velvet & a Dash of Lace: The Fabulous Interiors of Magnolia by Robin Brown" and I could read her story of romance with life forever and ever! She was recently married to Johnny and in Texas they used props from their wedding as their marketplace booth, and was it Dreamy! They live in Texas with peacocks on their ranch! Robin imports her linen from Europe and dyes it here along with all being hand-embroidered. I could not believe myself when I purchased an outfit from her as kind of expensive but I want more. I feel so good when I wear it as separates and together, it is pantaloons and a gauzy top! Over the Top! She also had her little vintage airstream RV parked in the same park that we had our little 12' Shasta Daisy teardrop in at Round Top, Texas!

So many magazines as going defunct or digital and I love to sit on my sofa and browse and read. I can only sit at this computer for so long. I hope they never quit printing on paper, but recycled of course.

I have to go make a second widget even as I am thinking of more I wish I could have added. Books fill my home and fill a need for me. Even blog reading is like reading a chapter in a book of people's lives! I love it.

At the bottom of this page you can see the widget full size and just click on the blue arrows to make it rotate for you. Just click on the photos in the carousel and it will take you to tell you more about them on Amazon and if you purchase, I would appreciate you getting them from this site to help me make some extra buying money there myself.

Smiles, Cyndi

If I ever buy from Amazon I will do it thru your carousel -- I do a lot of second-hand buying but the day may come when I can get a book I want when it first comes out!

I can't tell you just how much you made my day that more magical and bright. I am so glad we met, Ebay has brought many wonderful friends into my life!

Thank You for making the world a more magical place!

What a great widget! Like you, I think there's something wonderful about books. I love to read, and I love the look, feel and smell of books. One of the new Kindles really doesn't appeal to me at all. I love the books! What are you reading now???
