It’s time to pause for the rest of the month, so I’m stepping away from my desk and heading off on a mini break. This will be my first blog vacation of the year, so although I’ll miss you all, I’m excited to spend time with friends and family and pull the plug on my laptop. I’m sure you can relate!
So, I bid you adieu for now… Enjoy special times with all the special people in your life — I’ll see you on January 2, 2007! – Holly

This is one of those finds, that once you’ve discovered it, you almost don’t want to share… But I have to because Lou’s is the best! I love to sew and have this mini addiction to Japanese craft books. Imelda sent me the best Zakka crafty book over the summer and I still can’t keep my hands off of it. Lou is currently offering FREE worldwide shipping on her books right now straight from Japan, so you should shop her store ASAP!

Paintings by Rachel Austin, on Etsy! Great art from a lovely seller starting at only $25. You have to visit her website, she has a beautiful portfolio, you’ll enjoy browsing it. Rachel?s paintings invoke a sense of untouched beauty, simple yet bold, but never over the top. I love the shapes and colors that she uses, and in addition to her oil paintings, she uses various other mediums, such as watercolor and mixed media. Her oil paintings are my favorites though, just look at these, stunning!
