Who am I??

I am the owner of this funky little blog. I love art, books, animals, music, crafts, sewing... and probably a few million other things I have yet to mention. The blog started out as a watermedia blog (hence the web addy) but morphed into a book blog before I could really start it. I found a great community in the book blogging world and I love to talk books. I also love to talk about other things so I thought "Things" would be appropriate addition in the blog name. :) 

The easiest way to contact me through e-mail at books.things@yahoo.com

Quick note on vintage pin up images on older posts:
From Wikipedia:

Gil Elvgren (March 15, 1914-February 29, 1980), born Gillette Elvgren, was an American painter of pin-up girls, advertising and illustration. Elvgren lived in various locations, and was active from the 1930s to 1970s. Today he is best known for his pin-up paintings for Brown & Bigelow.

Most or all vintage pin up images are by this artist.
