Over the Counter #318

What books caught my eye this week as they passed over the library counter and under my scanner? Well, these two books from our 'new' shelf could give you a head start....

First up is A Year of Gingerbread Houses: Making and Decorating Gingerbread Houses for All Seasons Paperback by Kristine Samuell. "

From Lark Books:

"Nothing's more enticing for any holiday or special occasion than an awesome, lusciously decorated gingerbread house. With designs for Christmas, Halloween, Valentine’s Day, and birthdays, these exquisite projects include a cottage, chalet, and two-story house. Options as customized windows, doors, chimneys, paths, trees, topiaries, and even lighting add to the charm. More than 200 helpful step-by-step process shots; informative sections on tools, techniques, and components; and patterns, piping templates, and tips on baking, assembling, and troubleshooting assure magical results."

Next up is "Tis the Season to be Felt-y by Kathy Sheldon with Amanda Carestio.

Also from Lark Books:

Fa la la la . . . MORE! Crafters couldn't get enough of the adorable projects in Fa la la la Felt, so here are over 40 new ones to celebrate Christmas. From over a dozen ornaments to garlands, decorations, and lots of stockings to hang by the chimney with care, these holiday items will make your season merry and bright."

(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!)
