Elsa Schiaparelli's Private Album

Hi all! Elsa Schiaparelli's Private Album is a "coffee table book." I don't really know what a "coffee table book" is, but i think this one counts as that. I don't have an actual coffee table and i don't have a proper bookshelf either. Most of my books are resting on the wide window sill. I have at least 2 windows I don't use because it's not practical, one in each room. I mentioned this book briefly on my blog, in the My Crafting Book Collection post. I learned about Elsa from the book in the lower-left corner in the picture above. I became intrigued by her creations because they were wild for...

AISURU by Ioana Lee -reviewing and trashing

Hello people! Tonight, I'm going to trash a book by a Romanian author, Ioana Nitobe Lee - feel free to check out her website and her other books as well. No, i won't throw the book in the trash, for several reasons. i will (try to) share with you what i thought about the book while reading it. The book is called, in Romanian, Aisuru - this is actually a Japanese word, meaning "To Love." Now, let's not get all worked up. Ioana studied Japanese in Romania, got married to a Japanese man, and even lived in Japan for some years. She even taught Japanese in Romania, as a result, so we can't pick on her...
