Buy Handmade!

I love pretty handmade items throughout my home.

They are each one special and unique!

I won a giveaway at Marydon’s Blushing Rose and my gift was a ‘one of a kind’ hand made cover for my NOOK. Donna made it especially for me.

It even has a little pocket inside for the cord!

Donna’s blog is Brynwood Needleworks and she makes all kinds of lovely things. You will be inspired looking at all of her new creations!

We just went to a presentation given by 2 lovely ladies from our library on ways to use an e reader and resources you can find at the library for your e reader. It was very informative!

(forgive the circle spots on my lens…gggrrrr!)

Do you have an e reader?

What kind do you have?

I do not have an e reader, but if I did, I would be tempted to covet that beautiful little e reader tote you have! :-)

Wonderful win!! Looks beautiful! I love handmade items and I agree with you that each one is special and unique, something you can't get in a store. I have a kindle, just have been to busy to read anything lately. Hope to soon.

Donna said...

What a great cover! Congratulations on your win!

I do not own an e-reader:( Your winnings are fantastic.

Donna said...

I forgot to say that I have a Kindle. I'm on my second! Hubby took over my first one, so I had an excuse to get a newer one last year, LOL. I adore it!

Marydon said...

WOW! Donna did a beautiful job creating this exquisite piece. She is a marvelous gal. TY for sharing.

TYSM for the birthday wishes also, my friend.

Have a great weekend.

I used my sony e-reader a while back but now that books can be on my phone or laptop I do that now. I loved your cover the little bird on it is to sweet!! And to answer your question from yesterday, yes I will be adding my pillows to Etsy.

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Your cover is so cute! What a great job she did. I do not have an e reader but have given some thought to buying one. I've looked at the nooks and kindles.
hugs, Linda

Cheryl @ TFD said...

I have a Nook, but I haven't used it much yet. I still prefer turning real pages. :) That's a beautiful cover...love it! Congrats on your win!

Danielle said...

I don't have an e-reader. I say I just don't need one but I said that about a laptop and now that I have a laptop I don't know how I functioned without it! What do you like best about your Nook?

The Boston Lady said...

I'm a Kindle Fire gal and love it. Thought I would hate it, but now I find it indispensable. Love that pretty cover, just perfect! Ann

Chatty Crone said...

That was a very lovely gift!

Carol @ Always Thyme to Cook said...

What a nice gift! Very handy for the Nook. I had a Nook to start, but now I have an iPad. I get a lot of use out of it, especially for books, magazines and recipes. Looks like a nice presentation, good turnout :)

Ann said...

What a great giveaway, perfect your you. It is so pretty and practical. I don't have an e-reader, I use my hubbys ipad if I want to download a book. Great to have a special group to learn to. Thanks for coming by today.

Love, love, love the cover for your Nook...the little bird on it is adorable!! I use my iPad as my e-reader by using the Nook and Kindle apps. I just added the Inspire Handmade button to my blog side-bar.

Cheryl said...

I love that cover, too! So creative and homey! I am thinking that's what I need to give somebody for their October birthday!

Lauren @ My Wonderfully Made said...

I love anything handmade, especially when it's from a dear friend. I don't have an e-reader but I did just get an IPhone (not the newest one!) but the older version was now free for us :) Your e-reader cover is fantastic!!!

Ames said...

I like your computer case. And those are spirit orbs on your pic. Hugs.

ImSoVintage said...

I love my kindle, but haven't figured out how to download books from the library yet. I need to do that. I love your cover.

Karen Mary Butterfly said...

Such a cute cover! Isn't it fun to win a give away? Good for you!!

Marina@Picnic at Marina said...

What a cute "coat"for your e-reader! I have Kindle and love it! :)

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

I have a Kindle and an IPad but I still prefer reading an old fashioned book, Diane :) There is something so comfortig about the weight of a book and turning pages. I guess I'm old fashioned! I do love the cover you won!

sandy said...

What a beautiful Nook holder! Now I'm tempted to go out and buy a Nook!
