Impromptu library trip haul. Excited that they had The Summer Wives available since I am now seeing it all over Instagram but had already skipped this month’s Book of the Month #summerreading #thesummerwives #menwithoutwomen #wildelake #librariesareawesome #tbr #alwaysreading #bookworm #bookstagram #booksandbricks

Last week we featured a Journal article about the James Arthur Albert Foundation and Trilix’s involvement and support. Watch this video to learn more about the organization and how the money raised helps children in Belize. Watch the full video on our Facebook page.

Kashmir is home to some of the best walnut wood carving done anywhere in the world. Wood carving is done on a variety of objects-ranging from furniture (tables, chairs, writing desks, dining tables etc.) to articles of personal use like cigarette boxes, cigar boxes, jewelry boxes, photo frames and various other articles. 
Walnut is the most common wood used for carving. Kashmir is the country where the walnut tree grows. Its color, grain and sheen are unique, and the carving and fret work that is done on this wood is of the finest quality. Walnut wood from the root is almost black, and the grain here is much more pronounced than the wood of the trunk, which is lighter in color. The branches have the lightest color, almost blonde, and have no noticeable grain. The intrinsic worth of the wood from each part of the tree differs--wood from the root being the most expensive.
There are several varieties of carving-deep carving, usually with dragon or lotus flower motifs; shallow carving, done all over the flat surface; open or lattice work, usually depicting the Chinar motif; and semi-carving, which is a thin panel along the rim of a surface, with perhaps a center motif. The advantage of semi-carving is that it allows the grain of the wood to be displayed, together with the carver's skill. Wax polishing brings out the inherent sheen of walnut wood, and is by far the most popular finish. Since varnish obscures the grain of the wood and alters its hue, it is rarely used.
Relief wood carvings frequently adorn the cabinets, chairs, tables, jewellery boxes and ornamental caskets produced in Kashmir. Wood carving is also done on a large scale on the doors, walls and windows of traditional Kashmiri houses. Popular motifs of such relief carvings are the various kinds of flowers and plants in Kashmir. These relief carvings require a high level of expertise, patience and fortitude. Substantial amounts of walnut and chinar wood found abundant in the Kashmir valley allow a ready supply of raw materials for wood carving.

Today’s #readingwomen #photochallenge is of @spudsimple’s current read and @lego project. #currentlyreading the #lego creator #10251 building manual. At 167 pages, it’s one of my shorter reads this year! #🤣#manualstagram #babesinbookland #booksandbricks #babeswhobuild #itsabank #igreads #igbuilds #dork #numberinthetitle #sickbricks

my #borrowdontbuy resolution lasted as long as it took me to stumble across this sucker at the dollar store. i’m not much for white male authors these days, but a couple folks i know gave this a 👍🏼 (& i’m weirdly drawn to any book cover with a bird). anyone have thoughts about this book/Franzen in general? good read, or not worth the dollar i paid for it? 🐦📚 #dollartreereads #forthebirds #jonathanfranzen #freedom

I cannot believe I STILL have not read The Breakdown! I bought this back in the fall! Another good choice for a read-a-thon weekend! Getting through my #unreadshelf !!

I also want to read this before @baparisauthor new book comes out next month! I’m big on reading an author’s books in order of publication if I can help it!

On a side note: what do you think of the dotty frame in this pic? Yay or nay?

I know it has been a while since I posted, but there have been some big changes. I am so excited this book is finally out and can't wait to crack it open! #sarahjmaas #acotar #acourtoffrostandstarlight #novella #endlesstobereadlist #bookstagram #booksandbricks

⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ I thoroughly enjoyed this series and thank you @amandasafterword & @skyhazzard for buddy reading it with me! I can’t believe I took this long to read it, but so glad I did. I can’t wait to see what comes next in Bloodlines!

There were some things I saw coming like Jill, Victor, Adrian, and a couple others. And then some I was just floored by like Spirit, Tatiana, and Vasilisa. It was exhilarating, action pumped, drama filled, intoxicating read. Not to mention hilarious!
