what to post?

Well it seems that I'm at a loss for something interesting to post. I've been busy taking care of house stuff that needs taking care of. In between the repairs and sorting and filing I catch occasional whispers in the distance. A whistful voice. Calling.

It's my little bloggy....Come and post something new it says. But nothing seems to come to me. Inspiration hovers close by but just far enough beyond my reach.
I think I'm stuck.

I've been escaping in books lately and maybe that's it. My brain is on a book binge. A dear friend recently recommended Water For Elephants and I absolutely loved it. Had no clue it was made into a movie coming out next month! Now I can't wait to see it. The trailers look amazing.

I'm also reading Bel Ami, the classic by Guy de Maupassant. And yes I know Robert Pattinson is in the film version too. That's how I came across the book. There's no release date for the movie yet although it seems to be done. I have to admit Robert Pattinson looks perfect for the part!

Another movie I'd love to see is Jane Eyre. This newest version stars Mia Wasikowska (Alice from Alice in Wonderland). It looks beautiful, dark and haunting, just how I remember the book.

And just so I don't get too dark and serious I picked up and started reading Larceny and Lace at the used book store this weekend. I confess I have a fondness for chick lit. Especially one with a paranormal/witchy/vintage/mystery twist. Pure fluff but oh so fun.

Don't forget there are more adorable embellished bags to see. Click on the March Artful Bags link on the top of the right sidebar. And if you haven't tried the Artful Bag Challenge yet there's lots of time left to play this month. I'll be back with more art soon...I hope.

Hope you're having a great week so far.

I loved Water for Elephants too. I cried though, for some reason the fact that no one would take him to the circus was too much for me. I just heard about the movie too. I hope they do the book justice.

Oooooo, Water for Elephants is on my book shelf, waiting for my eyes! I'm in the middle of 'The Postmistress' right now (and I'm loving it). I find that when I'm lost in a new book - there is less blogging for me too. Take your time, and enjoy your days, my friend.

I just don't read anymore...about the only time is Summer vacation...when we camp for a few weeks and there's no internet...haha! Though, the past few years, I haven't been able to with a young child sitting next to me needing some entertainment....

Maybe this year? Thank you for the suggestions!

Oh, I am SO looking forward to seeing Water for Elephants AND Jane Eyre. I'm nervous that I may end up crying at Water for Elephants (I'm emotional like that). LOL Great post, Anna! Theresa

OMG ANNA ! I cannot WAIT for Water for Elephants !! I've been seeing it in bookstores for the past 2 or 3 years, and everytime I passed by it , my eyes have been drawn to it, I pick it up , flip through it , then put it back , saying.. " I'll get around to reading it eventually", lol... I couldnt believe when I saw they were making it into a movie, now all the more reason for me to actually pick up a copy and get to reading! I love reading books before seeing the screen version in the theater... But yes, I cannot wait for this ... LOVE LOVE LOVE all things circus :-)
