The Good Earth ~ My Latest Read

Here is my latest read ~ The Good Earth by Pearl S. Buck. I don't know why I haven't read this book until now. I used to be a voracious reader when I was young devouring tons and tons of books. I can remember walking home from school and my bag used to be so heavy because of all of the books I checked out out of the library. I still love to read, but I have not made time for it as I should. I am trying to read a few books per month now and this is one of my latest choices.

I remember my Dad reading this particular book years ago and telling me how good it was. The author Pearl S. Buck won a Nobel Prize for this piece of literary work. The book is set in pre-revoluntionary China and tells the story of Wang Lung, a humble Chinese farmer and his rise to a glorified land owner. It is full of triumphs and struggles including drought, starvation, floods, revolution and the rise of his wealth in troubled times.

This book was quite an easy read, but still captured my attention enough that I did not want to put it down. If you are interested in different cultures and different times, you will enjoy this book. There have been several movies made of it, although I have not seen any of them yet. I ordered one on Netflix that I should be receiving any day. I'll let you know how it turns out! Until next time...~Stacy~

Beautiful Books!

I can't help it ~ I love books! Decorating books, craft books, inspirational books, cookbooks, antique novels, poetry books...I just love them all! To celebrate my love affair with books, we are working on opening our new Beautiful Books Boutique! All of the books in our Boutique will be new, gently used or offered to you from our own collection. To help on shipping costs, we will be shipping all books by Media Mail. It takes a few days longer, but shipping is much less expensive.

We should have our new Boutique open by early next week! I hope you will enjoy browsing through our collection of books and that you will find a good read for those cozy evenings ahead!

Happy September!

Hello everyone and a very Happy September to you all! Whew ~ August is over and I must say that my blogging went downhill quite abit. We went on a vacation, my niece flew in from Canada for a two week stay, lots of things were going on. So, it's back to work for me! Some of you will be happy to know that I have started up regular Ebay auctions again. I will be listing several times per week on Ebay as well as stocking the web site with new treasures as usual. Thank you for your support during the summer months. I have the best customers around!

Take a look above at this gorgeous beauty I just listed! This is an incredible vintage 10 light chandelier that is just dripping with sparkling prisms ~ 80 in all. It's everything you want in a chandelier so have a look at it in our Lavish Lighting Boutique on our web site.

I hope you all had a wonderful summer! I know I did! I'm looking so forward to fall this year ~ my favorite season of them all! I love the pumpkins, the decor, the spicy candles, Halloween, just everything about it! I hope you all have a very Happy Fall ~ talk to you soon!
