Nothing Like A Good Book + Shop

I've been laid up for a few days with a bad back, and have been thrilled to delve into the towering stack of books by the bed.  (They may come crashing down upon me some night, so if I disappear one day, check the bottom of the pile.)  The second-hand shops of Maine provide such bounty for as little as 25¢ per book, and I suppose I get a little carried away. Click here for places to shop if you are ever out that way...

Had to share this little clip--so clever!  How do they do these things?

The Cold is Old

We're so over it.  Winter, that is.  Here at Clever Girl we've decided to think only warm, sweet, happy thoughts.  Color always captures our fancy, and there are lots of fresh, frost-free, colorful items that have made their way onto the shelves. Wintersweet is a terrific cookbook with decadent desserts for wintertime, filled with great pictures. We've got a rainbow of new cooking tools and gadgets in the pantry department, and you can't help but smile when you see our polka-dot flatware.  I'm always charmed by anything with whimsical dots on it.  There are lots of new 7-year pens in the stationary section, and we have many charming gifts for Valentine's Day, including sweet heart pins.  Finally, check out the Cake Candelabra.  It will elevate even the simplest birthday confection to an elegant level. Stop in and see it--so cute!

PS  Don't forget! The Westminster Kennel Club 138th Annual All Breed Dog Show is Monday and Tuesday, February 10-11, 2014.  Root for your favorite pooch...
