Weekend Reading 1.17.21

Hello all. We’re having a few beautiful sunny days here in Northern California so I’ve been outdoors as much as possible, taking long walks and yesterday a drive to the beach. It’s amazing how just a little sunshine can change your mood. 🙂

I’m halfway done assembling some new ladder bookshelves for my studio. I bought and read a lot of books in 2020 and they started to stack up, so I needed a place to put them all. They’re also an excuse to display more plants in some really cute planters I bought. I’ll share more about those later this week.
