  1. Hi, Daniella. I know! Love those little tucked-away spots for escaping into a good book. I'm working on my house and planning now for a small reading loft…can't wait.
    Have a wonderful weekend! ~LeAnn

  2. LeAnn precious…Your blog is just so beautiful, everything about it is simply splendid. This little room you've shown us today is the kind of place every girl would love, for reading, for dreaming, for thinking.
    Have a lovely, safe holiday weekend. Happy Birthday to America!!

  3. Gorgeous! I too am a huge Paul Coelho fan and have read quite a few of his books. I didn't see the 'Pilgrimage' on your list. The one where he does the Santiago de Compostella walk.. It's fabulous as well!

    Big hug and happy weekend to you (what is left of it..).

  4. I, too, am a fan of Paul Coehlo. He is my favorite author. There ae always lessons to be learned from his books. Your blog is lovely (and has a black background like mine)! Continued blessings…

  5. Hey Charlotta. Fun to know you also love Paulo. The Pilgrimage was good. I had forgotten about it. I must have loaned my copy to someone. I'll have to read that again.
    I have to say I didn't care for his last one (The Winner Stands Alone) -I was so eager to read it because I've loved almost every other book he has written. I hope people don't dismiss his other books if they read that one first! Take care and have a wonderful week! Hugs back at you! ~LeAnn

  6. Hi, Marsha aka "Splenderosa" Thanks so much for your kind words. I see you are from Texas. You must be very busy today with celebrations. Hope you enjoy a happy, safe 4th with your family and friends.
    Thanks again! ~LeAnn

  7. Naomi – Welcome pretty lady! I just saw your site. Very nicely done. Your business sounds like so much fun and I really like your ideas in the "giving back" section. (Love William Blake, too.)
    I agree about Mr. Coelho. The Alchemist is a must-read for that reason. I would suggest that anybody not familiar with him start with it first. It is simple yet profound.
    Continued success to you in your lovely business. ~LeAnn
