Sunday Salon-More Giveaways & Win a Scarf


Happy Sunday everyone.

The weather has been so strange everywhere, I hope everyone is all right. My heart goes out to all those who lost power in the ice storm. Luckily, I missed the ice by about 30 miles, but it was hovering at that freezing mark.
Just in time to keep you all warm, I'm giving away a home made knitted scarf. Just leave a comment on my blog between today and December 28th. I will choose the winner at midnight on the 28th. Good luck to everyone. This is called a Fisherman's Scarf and it is a medium grey color. Yes, I made it myself. LOL

Crown in Candlelight


I have been reading a historical fiction book called Crown in Candlelight by Rosemary Hawley Jarman. This author is a bestseller in both the US and the UK. Her first novel, We Speak No Treason sold out its first printing in seven days. She won The Silver Quill Award for this book. She has since written many more historical fiction novels of British royalty. Crown in Candlelight was originally published in 1978. It was published recently in 2008 by TORC (Tempus Publishing). If you are a fan of historical fiction and haven't read her books, you might want to check this or another one of her books out.

In the TBR Pile for the week!


1.The Scramble for Africa by Steven Fake and Kevin Funk
2.The Common Bond by Donnigan Merritt
3.Lima Nights by Maria Arana

Have a great week everyone. Good luck with the giveaways. :-)

Naida, Thanks for blogging about my giveaways. Thanks for the complement on the scarf. Yes, I knit and crochet when I'm not reading. LOL

That is an amazing scarf, and I would LOVE to win it, but even if I don't (which I probably won't) where did you get the pattern? I have been in the business of knitting scarves for Christmas presents this year for our family ( I have knit 3 and have 2 to go!) I would love to get my hands on that pattern!! If you have any good leads on insightful knitting websites with good patterns, I'd love that too. :)

Beautiful scarf - no need to enter me in the giveaway for it though - I also knit, and if I should win - it would give me less reason to finish my own!
