Weekend reads

Saturday morning we got up early and spent the morning on Granville Island. After enjoying crepes for breakfast, we started out for a walk to the park. On the way I spied this book in a shop window. I was immediately attracted to it. I love red and blue together but it was also the illustration. I could see the cover , read the title, and knew it needed to be mine. Of coarse I loved the cover, it’s illustrated by Emily of The Black Apple. I hopped over to her blog after, she is giving some away.

It didn’t take me long to read through it. I love reading Entrepreneurial books, I have devoured the whole Rich Dad/ Poor Dad series a while back, and this is another I bought last summer in Deep Cove.

I highly suggest all three.

I also made this over the weekend. She is lovely with a ruffly collar and her Maryjane shoes.

If you haven’t, don’t forget to enter in my giveaway.

Oops nearly forgot to come back after checking out those links. Thanks for the book recommendations, I've added them to my wish list!

The new Rice Baby is gorgeous. I'm hoping to have a bash at making my youngest a doll for Christmas, I hope I can come close to something as pretty as yours!
