A Christmas Present to myself.

Books make me very happy.
Though I'm not a big novel reader, Reference books, and large hard cover books full of bright fun pictures really do make me happy.
I always have to tell myself 'no' at opshops when I see the abundance of coffee table books of which I have no relation to it's content. Yet I still feel the need to buy them as they're so pretty. (I don't! I'm strong... and well, have no room for them. )
I really do love learning, so when I find a reference book that relates to my interests, I get oh so excited!
My Christmas present to myself, arrived on the front porch this morning!
I ran inside sat down on the couch and ripped open the packaging to reveal this...

Isn't it a beautiful book? When I found out this book existed I knew I had to have it.
Nothing screams Trish more than a book titled "Fantastic Plastic, the Kitsch collectors guide" 4 of the 6 words are key Trish words.
I couldn't believe I didn't already own this!

SO.... Just as I was thinking that this book and I were a perfect match, I open the cover, turn the first page and check this out...

I turn to my right, and I'm not at all kidding, this is exactly what's set up in my house. I just had to take a photo!

Made my day! Best gift to myself ever :)

Hope you all have a lovely Christmas Eve, and Christmas Day!
I'll speak to you all on Boxing day when the winner of my competition is revealed YAYYY!

Hi Trish, it is Kazza ex follower I Op therefore I Am blogger. You remember the lady who collects Decorating Books.

I have been following your blog since I left the world of blogging. My hubbie works for VLine and bought you home in MX that night.

I was thrilled to finally be able to say I know that celeb!

All the best with your on-line store. It looks fab. You have really thought it all out and it shows in every way.

I wish you all the best for the festive season and 2010.

I may return to blogging in the new year. I am not working at the moment and have the time.

Cheerio for now

Whoa! It's crazy that you have the same set up as the first page you turned too - but then, why am I not surprised? As habourmaster said, you SHOULD write/compile a book like that. It would be epicly cool and I'm sure we'd all buy it. Haha.

Best of luck with the store! x
