I, truly, love the library

So much in fact that I have decided upon emptying a shelf in my bookshelf just for library book storage:)

What hits me hard is the rapid advancement from books to ebooks. I don't think I am nor ever will be prepared to read my literature from a shinning flat ipad screen and at our local library they are already hanging flat pictures of books on the walls with codes that you put into your reading kilndle or other. I can only remain thankful that there are still shelves upon shelves of real paper books:) So here is a little of what I went to library for: 

All the "Road trip Diaries" that have been published in the blog have not talked about Unique Margarita's new home. Well, we are very excited and thankful for the place in which we live, the commodity, the beauty, the accessibility to a nice community, and the nearness to dear friends and family. There are some things that we wanted to update about this new home. So, kindling the creative and crafty spirit within we marched to library and checked out books on sewing for curtain construction, books on home decor for inspiration, Peanuts comic books for humor, and song books for practice on the guitar. 

Our local library has the amazing system of having thousands of movies, CDs and audio tapes that you can check out. This division of the library is kind of like a movie rental but even better! I found a really cool "Glee" CD, and an interesting audio tape on learning dialects and how to do a french accent:) 


We also asked for a library volunteer form and when we got home looked up a cool image editing site and played around a bit:) The image above was edited using BeFunky a cool and playful editing site.

If you find yourself in a similar situation to us (moving in to a new place and home) and are looking for ideas on sewing and decoration we recommend these picks:
"The Home Book" by HouseBeautiful
"Sewing in a Straight Line" by Brett Bara 
"The Complete Photo Guide to Sewing" by Singer

Happy Monday!:)
