Calling You Book Lovers! {Giveaway}


I've got friends in high places...
like Etsy:-)

I happen to be a lover of all things bookish.
Old books... even cooler.
I can't quite match Andrea, the owner of sorrythankyou79 though.
Her passion for books led her to opening an Etsy store and sharing all her fun finds with us.



An even cooler thing is when Fossil hit her up for hundreds of books for their Spring Catalog!

Allll them blue books....yup.

AWEEESOOME!
(yes I said that in my highest sing-songy voice)


Pretty neat stuff eh?

Okay, so a few of you may remain unimpressed and have yet to jump on the book lovers bandwagon.

I will now work at recruiting you....




Cannot begin to tell you the ways one so crafty, wise and witty as you could use books to decorate & stage with.


Calling all you photo-graphers!!
Props dude!
I LOVE these shots and as darling as the little girl is, the books sell these poses!

The photo below just makes me happy.
The way the light is filtering through...
Makes me think of summer days, ice cream trucks, jelly beans and rainbow bright dolls.
Those are my happy thoughts okay.
Don't you be crack'n on them.


Why?
Because it's cool.
Blue books. White suitcase. Old camera.
Cool.


You're jumping on the book wagon now eh?

Let us now find out the small details of how YOU can win a $25 gift certificate that sorrythankyou79 is so graciously sharing.

(don't be fooled by all these books, she keeps other retro items in stock at any given time)




It's so simple you could do it in your sleep!

Hmmm, what would I choose? I really liked the red books instant library. I also liked how to live in California. (I should have that figured out by now) Another one that could apply to most So Californians, was sportsmanlike driving.

Lana M. said...
