Take a trip with me?

It’s summertime…where can we go?

Let’s go to the library!


This is the Fletcher Public library and ‘THE’ place to be on a summer day!

I went by there yesterday and it was hopping with activity!

And where else can you go WILD and get THIS many books at one time!


See anything you would like to read?




and the movies are FREE for ONE week!


I had planned to share this decorating book with everyone…


but then I got carried away thinking about my neighborhood library!

Don’t you love the pages in this book?


All of the beautiful color…


and decorating ideas!


Do you decorate with bold colors? Do you dress in bright colors? I am wearing HOT PINK today! I could go for a walk in the dark and I could be seen! lol

Enjoy your day! HAVE FUN!

Looks like you are set for the week, or two.

Enjoy reading and watching old movies.

I worry about the future of the libraries, with Kindle, the Internet, etc. What is the fate of all those wonderful BOOKS?

Thanks for popping in to see me.
Be a sweetie,

I love going to the library too!!
And I love the color pink...I have on a bright pink shirt with gold outlined flowers on it today. After looking in the looks like I wear just about every color, but I sure have alot of pink and red shades of shirts.

I decorate very electic, some rooms are rich and warm, some are cool, one is bright, I wear dark clothes mostly and add color with accessories. Although a wise woman on QVC once said, "If you can't lose it, decorate it!", a reference to her body size. You have lots of great books there. xo,

Barbara F. said...

I meant to type eclectic, oops! xo

KAT said...

I do like wearing yellow in the summer.

Incipient Wings said...

Sherry@Back2Vintage said...

That huge stack of books and movies should keep you occupied for awhile! Libraries are great. You're lucky to have one close by!
Enjoy Gidget!

I enjoyed seeing all the books you got from the library. They all look great. Enjoy :)
I don't wear bold colors or decorate using bold colors, I am a pastel girl :)

You sure have some reading to do..what better way to send a day inside when its so hot out..all curled up with the air-con on and reading...
Have a sweet day, Elizabeth

I love the library! It was one place I knew my kids would be quiet when they were little hehee!

I am wearing purple today! I love all colors, dark, bright, light, pastel...


Freckled Hen said...

I love a good stack of books! Looks like you checked out some interesting ones, I love decorating books and though I admire bright colors very much I can seldom figure out how to wear them or even decorate with them.
Happy summer reading!

Ames said...

We are the same when it comes to the library. I usually end up checking out the most amount of books aloud!~Ames

As a former librarian, I can't get enough books. It's definitely a favorite activity at our house. My husband has been doing readings of Harry Potter at our local public library on Wednesdays. You definitely have some fun reading choices. Enjoy!

Kasia said...

Great trip there! :) I love books, but in decorating I tend to stick to more toned colours, although strong colours are indeed great to work with. :)

You found Rough Music I see, do let me know how you get on.

Bluebirds and Butterflies said...

Hi Diane,
Let me know how the Yoga Diet is... looks interesting! Gidget will be fun! Looks like you hit a gold mine there at the library! Enjoy! Love ya, Kim

Happy@Home said...

How fun!! The decorating book looks very interesting and what's not to love about "Gidget"? You've found the perfect way to beat the heat.
I often wear bright colors too. Love them.
Have a great day and weekend.

I love browsing in the library. Our library has an on-going book sale...hardbacks are $1 and magazines are always free. Looks like you have enough to keep you busy awhile on these hot summer days.

ANNE said...

i love going to the library, esp in a small town. The first thing i do when i move somewhere is get my library card!

DaCraftyLady said...

I love the beach area where I live and the mountains too...we have a cabin up there and go up there often...but the beach is fun and very friendly, my favorite color is pink so hot pink does it for me.. :) Love it bright and bold!!
