I know, you're going to look at today's cards and think to yourself, what alien has taken over Meg's blog today? Can you count the number of ways this is Not My Style?
2) Jewel tones!! Including PURPLE (PTI's Plum Pudding).
3) PURPLE AND RED. Living together on the same card! Right NEXT to each other! (I was going to include this with #2, but I think it deserved its own bullet point)
4) Massive amounts of imperfection!! That I LIKE.
Did you spot any others I left off?
I made a set of these for my MIL's birthday. Here they all are:
In other Meg news, I recently started devouring books again. You know how it is when you're reading an "ok" book and it takes forever to finish it? Then you read a good book and you finish it in a day because you stay up all night reading it? Then you remember why you liked to read in the first place, and start reading more and more? And start checking out armloads of books from the library and amazon starts daily dropoffs of used books at your doorstep?
Or is that just me?
Well, the two most recently devoured book have been It Sucked and Then I Cried by Heather Armstrong (of dooce.com)--very funny and very good birth control (ha). And then I picked up The Personal History of Rachel DuPree by Ann Weisgarber. Why? I have no idea. It's not like I even like historical novels. But, oh my, once I started it driving home from Atlanta (edit: DH was driving, I was riding!), I stayed up all night to finish it! Could not put it down. It was certianly not a story I've read before, and that goes a long way with me. I would say Sucked is about 4 stars out of 5, and Rachel is definitely a 5 out of 5.
Let me know of any books that have kept you up late recently!
