BEDM - Day 11, Favourite Books

I do really love my books.
Tucked behind the rabbit is probably my favourite book ever, 'Hoorah for the Filthpackets' by Alexandra Artley, (of which there is one copy for sale on Amazon!), which makes me laugh until I have tears in my eyes. Difficult to explain what it's about...AA portrays aspects of human behaviour which are frequently swept under the literary carpet...only those whose private lives are utterly spotless will be bemused by this witty celebration of honest filth...Just some of the words written on the frontispiece.
That is probably the nearest I have come to reading fiction for years but give me a crafty/cakey/ interiors/gardening book and I'll love you for life!
I guess my favourite ones are any thing by Rachel Ashwell, of the original "Shabby Chic" trend.
They are just full of eye candy and I just love to look through them.
One book I have on my list to get is by a blogger, Carolyn Aiken, of Aiken  House and Gardens. She lives on Prince Edward Island, Canada and has the most beautiful home and gardens. Truly stunning. She has released her own book that is available to be shipped worldwide. I haven't got around to ordering it yet, but I will. (Unless I win one in her giveaway!!)

Such wonderful photographs.
I also treasure 'Romantic Prairie Style'  by Fifi O'Neill, writer of one of my Top 5 blogs.
I hope my choices inspire you!
Happy reading!

PS. If ever anyone finds a copy of 'Boys, Boobs and High Heels' by Dianne Brill, could you be an angel and grab it for me! You will be handsomely reimbursed!

  1. I seriously need to get some book shelves for my house, its the one thing we havent't sorted yet. My favourite book is Little Women and I've been treated to some vintage fashion and biographies lately. I'll keep an eye out for that book!xx
