Beautiful Books

I never thought it would happen, but I’ve given up paper books for an eReader.  As much as I love the feel of a real book in my hands, it’s so much more convenient to carry around a digital book (or three).  However, just because I don’t read paper books as often, it doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate their beauty.  Here are some gorgeous libraries – a little literary eye candy for a Friday!


Words | Lisa Congdon

Well, I’m all moved into my new house.  Still loads of unpacking to do, but I’ve been taking the afternoon to relax and basically do nothing.  I had help from some amazing friends and family today, and I’m grateful to have them in my life.  Even with all this support (both near and far), I find there are moments where I need to look inside myself for strength.  One of the ways I do this is to focus on sources of wisdom and creative inspiration.  I’m inspired not only by the words themselves, but by the artists who convey the message in a beautiful way.  The talented Lisa Congdon creates lovely interpretations of words that resonate with me. Below are some of my favourites, but you can find more on her blog.
