New Year, New Projects!

by Liz The hectic holiday season has passed us and I am in mourning…I miss the festive season! The lights, the parties, the food! But seeing as we are well into 2017, I guess it is time for me to get back to my normal-boring-no-parties-on-Wednesday-nights life. Ho-hum. A lot of folks start their quest for […]

Or, What I Most-Definitely Did Not Have Time to Read in 2016. by Liz I have said it before and I am sure I will say it again…there are just too many good books! And every day more are being published! Don’t these book-folks know what they’re doing to me? And my new-found love of […]

For the Love of Pulp!

by Liz As a lover of all things stemming from and/or related to mid-century kitsch, it was the cover art originally drew me to the pulp fiction genre. Dramatic, racy, and a titch sleazy, displaying these covers with their scandalous titles adds a little spice to anyone’s bookcase. And after almost 20 years of collecting, my […]

Let’s Get Crafty!

by Liz  Break out the glue gun and sequins, it is time to get crafty! I am not sure what exactly triggers it (the plethora of indoor time, the fantasy of someday presenting only homemade holiday gifts to my family, the need to brighten the dark days with glitter and twinkle lights), but something about this time […]

I cultivated a summer reading list for myself and with summer’s unofficial end being yesterday, I thought an update was in order. All in all I think my experiment has gone pretty well. Audiobooks have […]

Sisters, Sisters

By Liz K. From the classics to more current releases, literature to movies, sister stories always seem to be fraught with jealousy and bickering. Who can forget when Amy destroys Jo’s manuscript? I cried! Or when Scarlett steals Suellen’s beau? What a wretched twit! While I do enjoy these dramatic tales, what I really enjoy knowing […]

The Dog Days of Summer

by Liz The dog days of summer are upon us! The phrase draws its meaning from ancient Greece when the rising of the Dog Star (Sirius) meant the coming of the hottest days of the year. While the common usage does not have most of us looking through a telescope, it still very much means the heat has […]
