The Book Review Bandwagon

Seems that these days lots of lovely blogging ladies like Jen and Amy are doing book reviews. And since nothing else exciting is happening here - as I am posting from my sick bed - I will happily do the same.
Creole Thrift is one of the only craft/design books that I have actually read every word of. Part auto-biography, part history lesson, mostly design and decorating handbook, Agnele Parlange's book captures what I find most fun about my job - telling people's stories through design. Integrating family folklore, childhood dreams and lifelong loves into the basic process of setting up house - finding furniture, fabrics, and accessories that sooth, inspire and create a comfortable backdrop for both the big and little moments of everyday life.
Read it and tell me if you love it too! If you were here I would lend you my copy.
