In the past week we have
taken a wee peek
at our home in Vietnam...Chateau Mango,
linked in with Bowerbird Friends,
cooked Thai Food,
strolled through a beautiful garden in Vermont
and met Gordon and Mary,
looked around the property at Tahilla Farm
and met Swift and Grace,
listened to classical, folk and jazz music.
Design, food, gardening, music...the proverbial Collage of Life!
It is only natural to follow with a few good books
and you all have had plenty to recommend.
Blogs, emails, Facebook..you have been
so generous with your suggestions,
I thank you kindly!
I have been a diligent note taker and
recently finished adding them to the
Brown Paper Book Club,
a place where we share a good read.
If you are new to the Brown Paper Book Club, have a look below.
This is page one of 10..with over 100 book recommendations between them.
Between you and me...I think we have a great selection.
Speaking of books... it is so exciting~
