B.R. ~ The Lightkeeper’s Ball by Colleen Coble

The Lightkeeper's Ball (A Mercy Falls Novel), by Colleen Coble, published by Thomas Nelson Publishers.

This Story was fantastic! Colleen Coble is definitely being added to my favorites list. In fact I have ordered book 1 and 2 of this series from amazon, LOL! Yes... This is the third book of the Mercy Falls series, and her eighteenth book to write. In general, I truly dislike reading novel series. I prefer standalone storylines now that my attention span has been dramatically shortened by motherhood. But this novel does standalone from the others in the series, which made starting the series with book 3 okay.

I could really relate with the main character in her strong loyalty to her family. The plot development was unique with several unexpected twists and turns {no spoilers here} that kept me very intrigued. The hero was droll worthy of course.

One of the main themes she illustrated throughout the story was how a little white lie of omission can affect those around you and yourself. It can eat away at your peace of mind, and those that are 'helping' keep your secret. Even when your reason to not tell the truth seems legitimate.

On a side note I read the digital copy I received of this book on my iPhone, and it was nice to have it with me to read wherever I was. Not that it took me long to read (even with my two distractions at home), LOL. I downloaded the file onto a flash drive then opened the file through iTunes to sink up with my iPhone, and it worked like a charm. I love it when technology works like it should.

I received a copy of this book from BookSneeze to review.  The opinions stated in this review are 100% my own opinionated opinions.

  3. I am so big into downloading books on my phone - it helps with stress when I am stuck in line or traffic - you name it... phones are just not for calling anymore - in fact I never talk to anyone on mine... Great book selection this week.

Quick Kitchen Curtain Tutorial

How comfortable with sewing are you?  Would you like to a quick and easy project that you can do yourself to create a window valance/ruffle out of any fabric you find?  Here you go!  There are only three lines of stitching in this project.  Very little measuring, and gorgeous results.

This project actually started almost two years ago, when I painted our current kitchen a pale ice blue we had left over from painting a bedroom.  To try something different, I painted the ceiling of the kitchen a deep, high-gloss navy.  You can see just a little bit of the ceiling in the finished curtain picture below.  As much as I adore the contrast in the paint colors, trying to find a ready made curtain for the kitchen has proven impossible.  Lots of kitchen curtains are to frilly, not the right color, too white, so on and so forth.  Did I mention too expensive?
So, when I brought home this fabric from Sewing Club and was trying to figure out what 'it' wanted to be, I decided it would be perfe…
