books and bows

it's always nice to receive packages in the mail. i get ridiculously excited/impatient and tear them open immediately. i received the blue and white bow headband from maria of lulu letty earlier this week from a bow swap (yay, bows! super cute, huh?), and the crocheted gray bow scarf with pearls is from a trade i did with mousse au chocolat. i love her bow scarves! i already have a black and white one, but i fell in love with the pearl one too and asked her to make one for me in gray.

too bad it's 80 degrees outside. i'll have to save it for when it gets cold again.

from amazon, i got "cracked up to be" by courtney summers. i already borrowed it from the library and read it, but i really enjoyed it--it's one of my favorites. so you should read it, like, now. ;)

i also got "alice in wonderland", with illustrations by camille rose garcia. i haven't read it since 3rd grade, and honestly, i can't remember the story very well (except for the disney 2d version). i want to read it before the movie comes out and i was attracted to the creepy-cool illustrations in this version. i can't wait to finish it!

anyone else receive anything fun in the mail lately? :)

Totally agree - getting mail is one of the best feelings :) Let me know what the book is like - I might have to add it to my list. Although I totally failed at project 365, I am doing quite a bit of reading this year. Go me!

Hmm, what have I got in the mail the past week? I had a few postcards waiting for me when I got back from holidays - then I got my vogue subscription that same day. I also recieved my cupcake toppers just in time for Valentine's Day and a package of some clothes I left at a mates house when I was on holidays :) Now I'm just waiting on my Frankie subscription. It's my first issue so I'm just hoping it gets here soon - it came out in shops today.

Hope the rest of your week is fantastic!

Yay! Checking the mail is often my favorite part of the day... I usually have a few packages in there, mostly books and Etsy purchases :) In fact, I may or may not space out my purchases so that I'm always waiting on something fun in the mail! In fact, I definitely do that. :)

I loved Cracked Up To Be, too -- Courtney Summers is a fantastic author, and totally hilarious on Twitter! I have her newest one Some Girls Are on my wishlist.

And those bows are so cuuuuute!
