Literary Junkies {August}

It's time for Literary Junkies!  I hope you will participate by either answering some or all of the questions in comments below, or better yet, write a post and join the party!

Here are this month's questions:

1. What are you reading? Tell us about it!
I am still hooked on Jan Karon's books, currently reading In this Mountain and love it!  These are the sweetest books to read at bedtime.


2. Do you read one book at a time, or read multiple books at once?
Usually one book plus one Bible study.

3. What is the first book that made you fall in love with reading?
I remember my mother and older sister, Karen, reading to me before I could read.

4. Do you prefer a physical copy of the book or an electronic version?
Since I sit at a desk all day clicking away on a computer, I prefer physical copies of books.

5. What are three books currently on your To Be Read list?  Oh, gee!  My list is so very long...  I need to read faster!  Our upcoming Women's Bible Study for Fall is Beth Moore's Children of the Day.  It's been a long time since we did a Beth Moore study.  I'm really excited!

Cradles for Sisters

 
We were shopping at a delightfully dusty flea market on the edge of Siloam Springs, Arkansas and I found this charming doll cradle!



Even though it was a bit grimy, I could see tons of potential and thought it would be perfect for my first adventure into shabby chic plaster painting.  One problem.  There are two little girls in our family and we only had one cradle.

 
Handsome Husband used the first one as a pattern and in no time at all, we had two!  He sure is handy to have around!  ;-)
 
 
With just a bit of plaster paint, the sweet baby beds were quickly transformed.  Isn't it amazing what different colors can do for a project?!


   'Not sure where these darling tulips came from, but they were in my craft stash and added with hot glue.  I thought they worked really well.
 
 
I'd like to sew bedding, but am a little stuck on what fabric would be the cutest. 
 
 
Any ideas or suggestions?  I'd love to hear your thoughts!
