On My Bookshelf: Burning Love

I’m back to share my May reads from 2016 with you. My library streak continued and I was excited to pick up Burned and Feverborn by Karen Marie Moning.


On My Bookshelf: Mysteries, Love, and Tasting Stars

Cozystyle April Library Books

Sharing the rest of my April reads and the next book out of my TBR jar. My reviews of Aunt Dimity’s Death, The Fault in Our Stars, and To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before.


On My Bookshelf: Library Love

In April, it occurred to me that I was getting nowhere fast on my TBR jar or on my Goodreads Challenge to read 25 books in 2016.  Four months into the year and I’d read…three.  And while I love buying books, I have way more than I really need and hate to just continue adding […]


On My Bookshelf: My TBR Jar and First Finishes

Inspired by Instagram posts, I made myself a TBR jar for my 2016 reading list. Sharing my first three reads of the year – Lara Casey’s Make it Happen, R.K. Ryals’ The Story of Awkward, and Kate Morton’s The Lake House.


On My Bookshelf: My 2015 Reads

Happy 2016!  I can hardly believe we’ve started a new year, much less that it’s almost the middle of January.  It’s been awhile since I posted, so I wanted to pop in and also share that I will be posting on a regular basis going forward.  I have tons of things to share, but I […]

Looking back at the month of December: lots of baking, pretty Christmas trees, a fun outing to the Dallas Arboretum, and cozy books.


November in Photos

★ November 1st I was still in Houston for the Houston Quilt Show.  I bought some fabric, and saw some amazing quilts in the show. ★ I made some zipper bags out of some linen panels I bought at the needlework show in Paris.  I was deathly afraid of putting in a zipper, but it […]

★ Picked up The Fiery Cross again to read.  I just can’t seem to get through this book.  I was inspired to pick it back up after watching the first episode of the Outlander series. ★ So, yeah, the Fiery Cross got put down again and I picked up a new book/series – Kresley Cole […]

April was a good month! ★ Spring mani using OPI’s Do You Lilac It? ★ We celebrated our 8 year wedding anniversary with Thai food ★ I treated myself to this gorgeous statement necklace from JCrew.  I call this my Marie Antoinette necklace.  I wore it to a goodbye party for a friend who is […]


On My Bookshelf: Fever Series

After finishing the third book in the Downside Ghosts series (what I thought was the final book), I cast about for something else to read that would catch my interest.  After a couple false starts, a friend of mine lent me the first four books in Karen Marie Moning’s Fever series.  I had no idea […]


On My Bookshelf: Downside Ghosts Series

One of the best parts of my week’s vacation from work has been the time I get to spend reading.  I so rarely get more than a few stolen moments here and there to read, that being able to wake up in the morning, have a cup of coffee, and read for an hour is […]


Wednesday Walk: Help

I’ve been meaning to do a post all week, but it just hasn’t happened yet. This whole “learning Lightroom” thing isn’t as easy as I thought it would be. So, I’ve got kind of a backlog of photos to post and stuff to talk about (of course I can’t post without photos!!!). Hopefully this weekend […]
