About Me

My photo

Change. I've learned to embrace it, ride it out til the end. Sometimes I'm kicking and screaming, other times weeping with my eyes clinched tight. Once in awhile I ride like a dog in a car, head out the window snorting what life has to offer. Mother to young adult children, a marriage of thirty years, and a desert to mountain to valley waltz with God have shaped me into someone I never imagined I'd be. Life is short and I want to live it. Tears, sighs, laughter and change. Every morsel granted to me. Scrambled, shaken or stirred.

Book Fans...Head's Up!!!

You know what I love? The smell of book stores. And even more amazing is the ambiance of an old book store. Or old library. My city rebuilt a library. The old one needed some TLC and fortunately has been turned into a museum. 

But when it was the library, the smells, the creaky steps, the book catalogue with the long drawers, the hush. Sigh. You don't get that from an internet search. 

So...Book lovers. Antique, vintage furniture lovers. Word nerds.  You are going to want to pay attention to this contest.

Do you recognize this book cart? It is an antique book cart from the New York Public Library.  

Out of Print, the literary apparel and lifestyle brand based in New York, had fun refinishing it--cleaning it up without stripping it from its character.  Founders Todd Lawton and Jeff LeBlanc did some research on the cart and contacted the manufacturer--still in business

Out of Print is hosting a giveaway: an antique book cartnine galleys from Penguin Random House and a $100 gift card to shop at www.outofprintclothing.com.

Go here and win a piece of the library for your home!
