Summer Reads…

VF reads

After going full steam at work lately, (jewels and clothing don’t sell themselves…) I have been in desperate need of a good summer read.  I have been catching up on the last two months of magazines I haven’t had time for and came arose these suggestions this month’s Vanity Fair.

I read ‘Valley of the Dolls’ forever ago and it’s since been one of my favorites.  I’m thinking I’ll try ‘Fear of Flying’ this time.

Marjorie Morningstar~ Herman Wouk

Fear of Flying~ Erica Jong

Looking for Mr Goodbar~ Judith Rossner

The Best of Everything~ Rona Jaffe

A Summer Place~ Sloan Wilson

Valley of the Dolls~ Jacqueline Susann

Etsy…Amazing New Find

{www.etsy.com/shop/ExLibrisJournals}

I came across this amazing little store on Etsy.  The Boyfriend and I are currently remodeling (I know I have been saying that for a year now but this time it’s currently happening) and one of my projects is wall papering our half bath.

She takes old books and prints on the pages.  I love the juxtaposition of the yellowed paper against the colors of print.

So I’m going to buy several of these to frame and go up in the bathroom once I paper it.  We found this incredible wallpaper in House Beautiful, all hand printed  by Alpha Workshops in NY.

Boring video but gorgeous paper:
