Next week

  • A week of eco crafting and lifestyle – including books, tutorials, resources and more

On my reading pile:

  • Quirky, interesting, funny, original – Faces in Places: A Photographic Collection of Faces found in Everyday Places (Jody Smith Ammonite Press February 1, 2011) is little book full of photographs of – yes you guessed it – faces in places, faces on bags, on streets, in nature, industrial zones, rusted faces, cloth faces, garbage faces, house faces! Its a cute and lovely little book.
  • Want to know what makes business visionaries tick and how you can become one? Ten Steps Ahead: What Separates Successful Business Visionaries from the Rest of Us (Erik Calonius, Portfolio Hardcover March, 2011) shows how intuition, courage, emotional intelligence and luck  play a huge part in becoming a business visionary. Fascinating reading!
  • I must be nearly 40! to read a book with ‘as you grow older’ in the title! But its true, as you grow older, you have kids, a mortgage, a family and home to care for, you suddenly begin to think more seriously about the implications for the future – your children’s future – it all comes into focus. But what can you do with only a smidge of free time each week – when all your time and energy goes into just living! And getting through each day, just surviving. Well I was attracted to Gardening for a Lifetime: How to Garden Wiser as You Grow Older(Sydney Eddison Timber Press April, 2011) because of some of its claims “Accept imperfections”, “Learn labor-saving techniques”, and “Practice realistic garden care”. While I think this book is aimed at older gardeners, who no longer have the physical capacity to dig and weed and plant and prune quite so heartily, I think it offers a huge amount of practical advice for younger, busy people who want to garden, who love gardening, but who realistically just don’t have the time! I love that this book talks about simplicity and practicality in gardening, time saving, imperfection and living in harmony with nature. A lovely gentle book.
