Weekend Luxuries

I haven't posted to my blog in quite a bit and I thought this long weekend would be the ideal opportunity to get back to writing. The New Year for me has happily been filled with lots of reading, snowy (sub-zero) days and knitting! I love this time of year as all the lists of the best books come out. 2013 had so many wonderful new novels. Topping my list to read next is The Goldfinch. I am such a huge Donna Tartt fan since first reading The Secret History. The Goldfinch is on every best book list around....I just can't wait. 

I'm currently reading The Perfume Collector for book club. Great, great novel. I've never read anything by Kathleen Tessaro before....her writing pulls you in from the very first page. Ideal book club selection!

I've been in search of new yarns and love this hand-spun merino, alpaca & silk blend I found on Etsy. I never tire of hand-spuns....the colors are so unique, luxurious and rich. This red is perfect for winter....created by Rambling Rose Yarns ....great shop to take a peek at! Happy Knitting! xo


  1. So glad you're back! This book has been on my "to read" list. This will be my next read! Love the etsy shop with the beautiful yarn.

  2. The Perfume Collector is such a great read....I'm completely addicted to it!
