i need to talk about persephone books.
i've mentioned them before..
but that was before i started reading them.
i'm completely obsessed and want to
collect all 100 persephone books.
i recently finished
Cheerful Weather for the Wedding.
it is a quick and wonderful read.
i'm now reading
Someone at a Distance
by Dorothy Whipple
and this one is a page turner as well.
most of the persephone books are
wrapped in a soft gray cover.
however, the ten persephone classics
(which are sold in the us)
have beautiful covers that are
works of art.
here is the link.
you can receive their catalogue
and biannual magazine for free!
what is on your bedside table?
mine is loaded down with
books i'm reading
and waiting to read..
little boxes and child made heart dishes
that hold rings and pins.
my grandmothers hand mirror..
and my other grandmothers tea cup.
hand cream, candle and journal.
and of course a cup of tea.
and hanging above my table..
some of hannah's artwork.
my new tea cup
and earl grey tea bought in london..
are a few of my favorite things right now.
another favorite thing.
reading books in bed
and eating popcorn
with this little guy
on a cold and dreary paris afternoon.
