Start of the collection

Aren't they gorgeous?!?

Since I saw the post over at Design*Sponge about the new Penguin Clothbound Classics I have been looking out for them to arrive here in Australia. I love the look and feel of a clothbound book and I think the cover designs are a perfect blend of old and new.

I spotted them late last year at Borders but refrained from buying. Well my patience paid off as I found them at 20% off today!

So I bought Sense and Sensibility and Emma. Gotta love a Jane Austin classic! I plan to add to the collection every time I need to treat myself to something.

I felt the need for a treat today as I've been nursing my sick little bub who has a runny nose and is very clingy and whingy, poor little darling. Breaks my heart to see him sick and suffering.

Have a great weekend,

  1. I love owning books like that..that you know will be around when your children's children come along...sorry to hear that little one isnt feeling too is heartbreaking...especially when they are all clogged up and congested and there isnt much more you can do...apart from using the vapouriser..which helped my little Jacq alot..and panadol etc..hope he recovers soon x


Thanks! I love reading your comments! Jxx
