A Willful Woman…

Thoughts about books from a romance addict.

By Request

Pictures of my inner 12 year old’s office. Sorry for the crappy picture quality. The light and dark lavender of the walls doesn’t come across at all.

Let there be pretty!

    Oooo, pretty, indeed! I especially like the string of star lights. And the light switch cover. Where did you get the covers or are they the work of your hands? (I am a sucker for butterflies…)

      I have hand made light switch covers — you can buy plastic and just insert, very easy — but these are beyond my sad craftiness. I bought them at ebay. (I *think*… might have been etsy. But I think ebay.)

    A true reader’s sanctuary … may you enjoy many days and evenings there, with great books!

Miss Bates Reads Romance

“Miss Bates…had never boasted either beauty or cleverness. Her youth had passed without distinction, and her middle of life was devoted to the care of a failing mother, and the endeavour to make a small income go as far as possible. And yet she was a happy woman..." Emma, Jane Austen
