This morning while drinking my morning breakfast shake, which I have because I don't drink coffee or eat breakfast, I had time to look through one that come yesterday. It is the Bas Blue catalog; a catalog I get because I ordered a Christmas present from it for Carrie had my attention. I'm so glad she pointed this catalog out because things in it make me smile.
Take this item for instance. Who wouldn't want a book about killing adjectives?
Or this one about diagramming sentences which just sounds like fun! Of course the title may have been what caught my attentions but diagramming sentences was always fun for me. :)
This set of books is one I could really use. I do have trouble with using words correctly at times.
Then there are fun items like these that could end up in Christmas stockings this year. And note cards like these or these for Donna, or some like these for Carrie and I like some like this for Amy. Not that I ever write notes, but I wouldn't mind having these. If I had them I might be inspired to write to someone.
Another fun item just for me would be this pair of "Weeding Glasses".
See the list just goes on and on. And as I posted these items I had dog-eared this morning to share with you, I came across several other interesting titles that just make me want to pick them up and browse through them.
The Sunny Side: Short Stories and Poems for Proper Grown-ups by A.A. Milne
Book Smart: Your Essential Reading List for Becoming a Literary Genius in 365 Days by Jane Mallison
1001 Books You Must Read before You Die edited by Peter Boxall
And the list could go on. If you've never been to their web site before now, you might want to spend some time there, or better yet get on their mailing list. It is a delightful little catalog.
(Oh, by the way, I won't get any residual for this endorsment.)
Now for that totally random picture :)
Wouldn't you love to hang out with these two people? I'm not sure I would!
