Slowly but surely we are heading towards summer. Summer for me brings fond memories spent in the cottage my grandfather built. Sadly, it is no longer in our family, but I always dream of having one of my own one day. So Vintage Cottages by Molly Hyde English with photographs by Tom Lamb caught my eyes this week as it passed over my library counter and under the scanner. It's the kind of picture book I enjoy leafing through. Anyone lucky enough to have a summer place?
From the publisher Gibbs Smith:
"The simple, unique and interestingly appointed cottage is a place for escape, filled with art, books, color scents, sounds, textures, and memories. Vintage Cottages features unique and personalized décor ideas focused on style, color, and regional taste and liveliness that honors tradition while looking forward to a lifestyle that is uncluttered, unhurried, and reflective of rugged, unapologetic individuality. "
(Over the Counter is a regular feature at A Bookworm's World. I've sadly come the realization that I cannot physically read every book that catches my interest as it crosses over my counter at the library. But... I can mention them and maybe one of them will catch your eye as well. See if your local library has them on their shelves!)
