so thankful for days like this. golden days. when the sun shines down so brightly. and the trees sparkle. and the warmth fills my soul with peace. on days like this i think...everything's gonna be alright.

i love tiny little things, don't you. i've been making these little envelopes for a long time. i like to use all of the parts of the vintage books that i chop up. sometimes i use them in my books. sometimes i package up a few to give away with a purchase. they're tiny. and cute. and so useful...
they look cute attached to a package.
they are good for leaving on someones pillow.
or tucking into their lunch.
i think it would be fun to write something nice and leave it someplace random for a stranger to discover. to brighten their day.
they are good for keeping lost buttons. until you have a chance to sew them back on.
you can fit little surprises into them. like chocolate.
i've put a few sets of these into my shop.
in case you like any of my ideas.
or maybe you have an idea of your own...

A room without books is like a body without a soul.
- Cicero -
i could never have one of those e-readers. i love books too much. the different shapes and sizes, the smell of them, the feel of the pages... i like fiction. i like artsy books. i like instructional books. i like inspiring books. i like blank books.
i literally have piles of books in every room of my house. i take books with me when i leave the house. so there is always something for me to read, no matter where i am.
and i read. every. single. day. and just now...when i stepped into my bedroom...and saw the sun streaming in...the way it does in the afternoon...casting a glow over my piles of books. well, i just wanted to stop right then and there...
how about you...have you read anything good lately?
