Colorful Glass & Recommended Reading
Super productive, inspiring Tuesday! I declared it Bollywood Tuesday this morning (in an isolated Skype conversation, but really, I just had to convince myself). So Pandora was a mix of Cortex Cure Holiday & contemporary Bollywood all day. Mood lifter! I also ran errands during my lunch break and picked up pumpkin nail polish, some colored glass mini-tumblers (they look great in the Gin Room), and got my copy of Goddess Guidebook founder Leonie’s newest book. Call me an eccentric cheeseball, but I love how uplifting her whole website is.
They’re not in the best condition, but they were $0.99 each, and they deserve a good home. ♡
… and that home = the Gin Room!
If you don’t know the story of the Gin Room, it’s the middle room between our office and kitchen, which had not much use other than craft/storage/vintage stash until we added a mini bar, incidentally stocked with gin, before our house warming party last summer. Now it is a multi-purpose room that serves many functions, but we’re working on making it more lounge-friendly.
Oops. My kitchen just got jealous and it demands some representation as well. Okay, fine, kitchen. I love you just as much as I love the gin room.
Leonie’s book, waiting to be read tonight! Books are my new reason to spend less time on the computer. I just finished breezing through The Martha Rules and I have this incredible stack of small business & self help books to plow through by my personal deadline of June 30th, 2012.

Off to do some reading & tea drinking.
