What a beautiful blessing books hold in our lives. To pick up a book and escape to a place or idea, is a real thrill. Books can take us anywhere we want to go. Giving us valuable information and inspiring us on any topic we choose. For me, books have always been a joy ever since I was a small child listening to stories my Mother would read and visiting the Book Mobile in the parking lot of my elementary school. I was hooked from that moment. I love so many types of books, from a good story, learning books, spirit building volumes and of course, decorating books. I thought it might be fun to try and have a book review at least once a month, sharing a title or more with inside pages of books I enjoy and turn to for inspiration and reference.

The first I'd like to share is titled, "Putting the Heart in Your Home" by Jean LemMon~
This book is warm with gorgeous indoor and outdoor pictures and inspirations for the comforts and ideas to enhance our homes. With categories for moods to relax and create.
Just look at these gorgeous inside pages. It was hard to choose just a few for now. This book graces my coffee table and wonderful to pick up at anytime and learn something new.

Another favorite is Nell Hill's " Feather Your Nest" It's All in the Details, by Mary Carol Garrity

Filled with comfort yet elegant, soothing and tasteful. Each page is chock full of ideas and reads like a story. Brings you in and relates through style and details. Like the cover says, It's All in the Details!
Here are a few inside pages.

I have barely scratched the surface to the wonderful pages in these 2 books. If you have them, you already know what I mean. If not, I know you would enjoy these two titles.
