Happy Birthday Book Club!!!!!

4 years already?!?!?!

We have had SO much fun and read so many great books. I can't be more thankful than I am for having this in my life. I have made excellent friends, and fallen even more in love with beads and making jewelry.

I love that the books we read push me to read something other than the normal fictional drivel that I usually choose for myself too.

Most importantly though, I am so thankful that I discovered Allegory Gallery some 5 years ago after reading an article in the local paper that said there was a bead store opening in town!

We have had such great times in both of the locations of the shop and I am so happy to be a part of this group and these crazy folks (me included) who get together each month to show off our goodies, trade stories about just about anything, and enjoy each other's company! And yeah, maybe talk a little bit about the book of the month too, ahem....

So, here's the books we have read:


My favorites have been: The Bucolic Plague, An Irish Country Doctor, The Cookbook Collector, An Object of Beauty, The Night Circus, Mr. Penumbra's 24 Hour Book Store, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children (also read further into the series), Serena, The Silver Witch (definitely read further into the series), and Where'd You Go Bernadette.

And there are more to come! So, if you are reading my post, and you think you'd want to join us, what's stopping you?????

Anyhow- here's what I made last night. Full disclosure: I read Where'd You Go Bernadette years ago- and I had plans to make something entirely different (and think I still will) but this is what I came up with while we chatted:

Once I throw a clasp on this piece, I will be all set! Love it!
