Good Mood Books

Hi guys and welcome to this week’s Good Mood Monday’s post.

My word this week is very simple: Books! Oh so many books!

I started off by receiving a very lovely reprinted copy of the wartime classic Make Do and Mend from a friend in Russian Class.

Then when a fairly big glorious order came through Etsy I treated myself to some sewing textbooks I have been hankering after for a while:

Period Costume for Stage and Screen Outer Garments Book II by Jean Hunnisett (why yes this is an ex-library copy – books are books!)

Men’s Garments 1830-1900: A guide to pattern cutting and tailoring by R. I. Davis

And finally, not really sewing related but I thought why not?

Fan Phenomena – Jane Austen edited by Gabrielle Malcolm

These books are oh so pretty and to be honest business purchases really since they will be oh so useful! I already have one of the Jean Hunnisett books in the series so hopefully in the next year I can get the last two books to complete my set!

I have also just finished reading The Professor by Charlotte Brontë and will be started Villette very soon. It’s the 200th anniversary of Charlotte Brontë’s birth this year so I have plans for a few special Brontë inspired things on Etsy and here on the blog 🙂

So another short and sweet Good Mood this week but books make me so very happy that having at least 4 of them quadruples the Good Mood!

Well until next time,

See you in the future! ♥
