What's on your coffee table Wednesdays

Decorating intentionally.

Last week my friend Shari gave me her new book---and signed it.

Weeeeeee I have an authographed copy

of the most awesome, useful, encouraging, book ever. What is so wonderful about it??? It is practical AND FUN. I want to page through it constantly. It's packed full of all sorts of info telling me about what colors look best on me, what size jewelry to wear - I have learned that I am a movie star and because I know that I know exactly what size earrings and pendants to wear. I also know that I have diamonds in my legs telling me the best length for me. 

Now that it is on my coffee table I get to touch it, look through it, apply it every time I shop or dress.

Want to learn about what looks best on you? If you live in the Charlotte area you are invited to Shari's book signing this Sunday:  Borders, North Lake Mall on I 77 (north) from 3 - 5.
Hope to see you there!

Now that it's on my coffee table do you know how many friends are goign to ask about it  and want one?     Lots!

Hi Van,

LOVE, LOVE your blog!!

On my coffee table is a photo album from our trip to Hawaii in June 2007 where we celebrated Monty's 25th high school reunion and our 20th wedding anniversary. It contains glorious pictures of God's incredibly beautiful creation, pictures of our precious children, and memories of our family spending ten whole days together without outside interruption. I TREASURE that time and TREASURE the album.

Love you,
