Time again for Calendar Tuesday, which only happens on the first Tuesday each month.
Beginning with the Country Homes Ideas calendar:
I like these big old French style wardrobes, but I'm not a fan of mirrored doors. I'd rather have a mirror on the inside of the door, that way there isn't glare from the light shining at me whenever I'm in the room.
Moving on to the Violent Veg calendar:

now for the Suzy Toronto calendar:
and here is what it says:
Reading Is like Dreaming with
Your Eyes Wide Open
OK...let's admit it. Some of us are reading addicts...as in full-fledged, over-the-top readaholics.
Family and friends threaten us with intervention because they always catch us with a book in our hands.
We don't dare tell them about the one tucked away on our nightstand or the one stashed next to our favourite chair.
(I'm not even going to discuss the electronic gizmos we have filled to capacity with even more reading material!)
We love the way the words dance around the pages, painting a poetic masterpiece that makes our hearts tingle.
Some parts are so good, we just have to read them twice!
But that's not all.
The real hook is that reading allows us to dream with our eyes wide open. It takes us to distant and exotic lands and serves up wild adventures in make-believe worlds.
All we have to do is pick up a new book, crack the spine, and let the magic transport us.
Our books become a safe haven to which we can escape, an adventure to discover, or a place and time in history to relive. They stimulate our mind, broaden our vocabulary, and expand our base of knowledge.
No wonder we're so passionate!
So go ahead...dream with your eyes wide open.
Pick up a book and read!
