ATC by Trish

Hi Gang! Today is a slow news day here in the duet abode! However, I wanted to share some more of the terrific artwork we did this weekend. I also figured this was as good a time as any to post some more book information. I think we will work backwords on the book lists. I previously posted 4 Star books, now we will look at some of my end of year lists, chock full of readerly goodness!

Love Margaret Atwood and I am jotting down a few of your titles ... why is it :The Bitch Posse" catches my eye first ???

How fun to see the same image used by two different artists !
Love that phrase by Trish "...kisses tickle..." and Jane's card os adorable in polka dots.

Laurie's vintage bronco is cute @ and your use of the tickets in repetition that way is a brillant background !

Looking forward to your Honorary Title post !
