Rock the Kindle

For those of you who don't know me personally, I received a Kindle for Christmas and am, to put it mildly, hopelessly addicted. I have so many books I want to read and am struggling with which to download first. One of my 2010 intentions (I am not a fan of resolutions) is to read 3 books per month, one nonfiction, one fiction, and one that is primarily educational/informational (i.e. books that are job-related, news-related, finance-related, you get the idea). This month I conquered these so far:

1. Nonfiction: Committed by Elizabeth Gilbert

2. Educational/Informational: Freakonomics

3. Fiction (downloading to my Kindle as we speak): Still Alice by Lisa Genova

I can't wait to get started on that last one and am starting to appreciate the Kindle...only $6.39 for that last read!

Happy Reading! Anyone care to share some favorites for next month?

Bay Window Crisis I found a solution. It seems that it is not an easy task to dress a bay window. But I feel mine looks a bit naked so I have finally completed my search with a Bay Window Curtain Rod I found on was more than I hoped to pay but works perfectly in the window. I searched at both Home Depot and Lowes and asked staff for their guidance but they had never heard of a rod specifically designed for a bay window and suggested plantation shutters or three separate rods.

I purchased the three separate rods and came to the conclusion that the effort to get them hung at the exact same heighth combined with the price of the corner connectors ($15) would be about equal to the price of the Bay Window Rod.

Here is the finished product. I already had the curtains (made painstakingly by Mom) so wanted to make sure I used them in the new place.

Here is the curtain rod I purchased:

Here are some additional photos for inspiration:

I will post pictures of my own window in just a few :)

Happy Sunday!

About Me

This blog is a place for me to explore the things I love in my own little corner of cyberspace. Those things mostly being food, wine, yoga, travel, style, and my own little home improvement plan. I am a small town gal with big city cravings, a therapist by day, foodie-wino-yogi by night, and a lover of all things French, red, and tasty. Grab a hot cup of coffee and come sit by my fire....
