A New Look and Some New Books

I have been playing around with blogger template design. I will probably be working on the text colors for a while trying to figure out how to change them.
Went shopping to the book store over the weekend. Picked up several books.
Here is a list of the books I picked up.

  • "Hello, cupcake" I just loved this book, it has so many cupcake ideas. We all know we eat less cake if it is a cupcake. Can use imagine a cupcake that looks like mash potatoes or corn on the cob. What fun for summer time picnics.
  • "Healthy Bread in Five Minutes", Learning how to make bread can be so easy and not take long at all. the prep time is less then five minutes. Just think it will cost about 40-70 cents per loaf and you will have a fresh out of your own oven.
Now for reading;
  • "The Elegance of the Hedgehog"
  • " The Forgotten Garden"
  • " The Time Traveler's Wife"
I am looking forward to reading these.

The Doll People

The Doll People
By Ann M. Martin, Laura Godwin, Brian Selznick

Ever wonder what goes on in your house when you are sleeping or not at home? You know do the toys come alive. Have you come home and your child can't find that favorite toy. How about that " I don't know, it wasn't me" statement. The one all us parents say "well we are the only ones in this house.... ARE YOU SURE?
This is a delightful book, one that is sure not to let you put it down. Ann Martin writes with such feeling one can have so many emotions running thought their heads. Oh and all those questions answered. I guarantee you will never look at a toy the same after the read. So grab the book and what ever you do don't throw that toy away... you might be messing with the balance of the Doll world.
