in chronological order of arrival:
1. a book of amazing short stories
this book hooked me with the funky giraffe cover and the hilarious title, "punishing ugly children." but the writing itself won me over. mr. berger is a blogger i have long admired, and i ordered the book directly from him so he even signed it for me:
please visit his blog, red-handed dot blogspot dot com and check out his work. and seriously contact him if you are a lover of clever and well-written short stories, as these 20 will not disappoint.
2. a faaaaaaaabulous art print
i stole this pic from the artist's blog because i haven't framed mine yet but i want to make it look exactly! like! this! rebekah leigh marshall dot blogspot dot com is where you can follow her work, i'm drooling over her current horse and pony drawings. the print quality, by the way, is EXCELLENT and rebekah is all about the swap, one of the many reasons i love her so xxx
