Happy Haul-idays with Chronicle Books


Hello Lovelies! I hope you are having a gorgeous weekend! 

Chronicle Books is my all time favorite publisher.  They have consistanly created beautiful books and gifts.  Eveytime I find a new book I covet...it 99.9% of the time is Chronicle.  I love them dearly.  I wanted to share with you a wishlist I made over on Chronicle Books.  They are having the most amazing contest called Happy Haul-idays.  I post my $500 wishlist of all the books and goodies I love from Chronicle Books and you comment.  If we win this, not only to I get a box of goodies of the WHOLE list...so do ONE of you - just for commenting!! It's a win-win on the merriment scale.  So without further delay... My list of lovelies.

 gorgeous entertaining
By the creators of those gorgeous little cards.  This came out on Tuesday and I'm headed out the door to go get it today.  BTW...I think I am in love with Shauna...
HANDMADE WEDDINGS - SABRINA + EUNICE MOYLE (HELLO!LUCKY), SHAUNA FAUST
I have BABY SHOWERS and WEDDING SHOWERS by this duo of formerly Martha Stewart Staff.  I LOVED them then and still DO now, ten years later (yes, I was crazy for parties in college, too) If this book is anything like the others, I NEED it.
AT HOME WITH FRIENDS - MICHELE ADAMS + GIA RUSSO
I have sucuumbed to that little piece of me that wants to go back to France.  I've even tried to learn French.  Ok, still working on that.  This little lovely shows all the goodie basics that you need to make your own luxe french party.  Simple and pretty, I'm making these party pretties in the poor girl's linen...chunky muslin.
FRENCH GENERAL: HANDMADE SOIREES - KARRI MENG
pretty little crafts
I heart Yee-Haw industries (zombies ring a bell?) and letterpress.  I heart this...
LITTLE BOOK OF LETTERPRESS - CHARLOTTE RIVERS (YEE-HAW INDUSTRIES)
On my list to learn ASAP, what a pretty family portrait this would make. I just love how timeless and modern these look.
SILHOUETTE ART - VANA CHUPP
Everyone around the web has been crazy about this book.  Gotta have it.
PAPER + CRAFT - MINHEE + TRUMAN CHO
I must admit.  This woman can teach you to sew.  Her patterns are the EASIEST I have EVER made.  And to top it off they are cute and not your mama's sewing patterns.  I have made 3 of her purses and her's was the first quilt I ever made from a pattern. I own every other book she's made.  I love when I can get another!
AMY BUTLER'S STYLE STICHES - AMY BUTLER
I want to learn how to applique the right way.  I have tried to teach myself, but its gotta be easier than what I try. 
APPLIQUE YOUR WAY: 35 PRETTY PROJECTS AND PATTERNS - KAYTE TERRY
I've been dying to get my hands on this at my bookstore.  I wanna see I wanna see!
LOTTA JANSDOTTER'S HANDMADE LIVING - LOTTA JANSDOTTER
Love. the end.
FRENCH GENERAL: TREASURED NOTIONS - KAARI MENG
Aren't these just the prettiest little accoutrements ever? I want this so bad.  I would, however, have to force myself to use them on packages to giveaway.  I tend to hoard this stuff.  Oops, did I say that out loud?
CURIOSITIES - (DECORATIVE TOKENS AND EMBELISHMENTS KIT)


yummy deliciousness in directional form
Both Tartine's are so pretty.  If my creations taste as good as these look, I must have this.
TARTINE - ELIZABETH PRUEITT + CHAD ROBERTSON
TARTINE BREAD - CHAD ROBERTSON
My brother says cookies are the next cupcake. Does whoopie pie count?  It's like a cake and cookie had a baby.
WHOOPIE PIES - SARAH BILLINGSLY
I adore a bakery cookbook, this one is so lovely I'd a bought it on the spot if I was in a store.
FLOUR - JOANN CHANG
I have the kid version of this.  It's a diet breaker for sure, but for this much yummy, I don't care.
STICKY, CHEWY, MESSY, GOOEY - JILL O'CONNOR



perfect little goodies
Have you seen the pretty little chalkboard to-do lists?  Get the paper version...
MINI GOALS NOTEPAD - MARY KATE MCDEVITT
Too cool for school...
OLD SCHOOL LETTER SET - PAPER+CUP DESIGNS


these little lovelies I've wanted since last year...
Premade patterns, insert into all kinds of printable goodness? So, I can print my own loveliness? Yes, please.
REPRODEPOT PATTERN BOOK: FOLK - DERBA GOLDFINGER (REPRODEPOT)
REPRODEPOT PATTERN BOOK: FLORA - DERBA GOLDFINGER
