"It was June, and the world smelled of roses. The sunshine was like powdered gold over the grassy hillside." 🌿 It's such a lovely day today! I'm going to have tea in the sunroom before starting a bit of work for the day. I'll be listing this 70s linen dress this morning, then maybe spending a few thoughts on wedding planning. 💒 What are you most excited for today? ❤
I decided right at the last minute to join in with the #12daysofannestagram hosted by @carrottoppapershop and @thebooksellersdaughter. I missed day one yesterday so I'm combining two days here. . . I really struggled to pick my favourite Anne book because I love them all. I went with the first in the end as I have such wonderful memories of buying this book with my birthday book token and falling in love with the story. This is a very battered copy now but I could never part with it. . . Day two is 'If you love Anne, you'll love...' and I had to choose the Betsy-Tacy series by Maud Hart Lovelace. I only discovered these books last year but they are wonderful and I know I will be re-reading them many times.
We just finished reading the first 3 books in the Betsy Tacy Treasury by Maud Hart Lovelace. After I read a chapter or two, my oldest daughter LOVES to reread and retell what I just read. Her love for stories and books can be seen in the fabric of these pages— or should I say within the fibers of these pages? In this last book, Betsy, Tacy and Tib are ten years old and I’ve decided to take a break since my listeners are 6 and 3 years old. These stories have been a joy to read, engage with and reinact! . And yes, we’re ordering another copy 😂 #everythinginjoy
