I love any chance to use pink in my posts, so please forgive me for overgramming today. Some of my favorite pink books are these gorgeous pink Penguins which were released to honor cancer survivors in Australia and New Zealand. I wish they’d been available here. I had to special order mine and could only buy these ones. Just a small sample of what was available. But they’re so lovely. I’d love to buy more if you know where I can get some in the U.S.

My hubby spoiled me this year with a heart shaped balloon, heart shaped chocolates, a heart shaped ornament, a dozen red roses and a gorgeous card too. He really surprised me. Such a sweetie! =)

I couldn’t resist posting some stunning pink bookish merch too. I love this gorgeous cushion design and the lovely mug that I ordered from Red Bubble by one of my favorite artists Nyxsullivan

And talking of gorgeousness. Have you discovered these amazing bookish candles from

Amanda at North Ave Candles

She sells the most amazing candles that not only smell delicious, but look so cute and what I just love is that Amanda ships quicker than any other candle store I’ve used. One of my pet peeves is that every other bookish candle store that Ive bought from take four to six weeks to deliver the goods. I mean my money is paid to them instantly, so Why don’t they have stock? Amanda ships right out to you FAST! and her candles smell as delicious as they look. This one is based on the book ‘The Secret Garden’ and is is beautiful!

I love the old fashioned library card labels. And Amanda has just started making badges/buttons and bookmarks to match. Kindly keep checking back and I’ll post some pictures this week on my Instagram account

Finally, how do you like poetry? I recently picked up some contemporary poetry when I purchased this darling book : ‘The Universe of us’ by Lang Leav  The only poetry I’d read previously had been quiet limited, with my absolute favorite being ‘If’ by Rudyard Kipling. I used to have that on my fridge door when I first emigrated here and was incredibly homesick for my family and friends back in Britain.
