Another monday has arrived, and I'm emerging from the clutter on my desk (and on my mind) to delight in some link goodness.
- Ill Seen Ill Said's inspiring women series is always, well, inspiring. This week I was surprised to find an inspiring woman from a different kind; Roseanne McNulty is actually a work of fiction, a character from Sebastian Barry's The Secret Scriptures. I fell in love with the same character a few years ago, when I read the book for work, and so I was delighted to see Jane found her inspiring, too. I especially loved this sentiment from Jane's post:
"[...]It was about finding women for myself to admire not because they're just rich or beautiful or live charmed lives. It was about complexity and intelligence and softness and vulnerability."
- To me, books are one of the key elements that make a house (or an apartment...) feel like home. Karla wrote about some books that add not only character, but beauty to your place.
- Would you make a book wreath like this one from The Happy Home? I find it beautiful (and easy to make!) but I don't think I have the guts to tear a book apart, even if I don't really like it.
- Hanukkah is almost here! Suze put together a post about some menorahs I'd display all year round, not only on my favorite holiday.
- It turns out today's theme was once again books... I promise I didn't do this on purpose, it's stronger than me! :) Talking about books, Check out my book review from yesterday if you missed it. I'm talking about Joe Nye's book Flair.
- Friends who connected to my facebook page or pinterest may recognise the image above (stunning, isn't it?). Join the fun, too!
