Vintage – the ideal name for a clothing store of unique and classic pieces.
I need a Vintage store in my area. I am in search of gloves for tea time.
This novel by Susan Gloss, is about a girl who never really fit in back in her small town. Violet moves to a bigger and more open minded city to open her own clothing shop called Vintage.
Violet specializes in seeing the treasure in old things and in people too.
As customers come in with items to sell, unlikely friendships and bonds are formed. Three fragile women will become strong and whole again.
The characters in this book are likable and relatable. Their stories weave together smoothly.
Vintage was a pleasure to read and is just the title for a stay at home in comfies selection.
A paraphrased line from the book, that may become my life motto is-
"Better a little something exceptional than a lot of something mediocre."
I have loved and faithfully watched the movie-Anne of Green Gables since my tween years.
But up until now is that I have never read the book.
Even though I had a copy collecting dust on my bookshelf!
So, I put my Anne of Green Gables copy in the car to read during my sit and wait time- a chapter here and there.
Now I know why this book has been a favorite since 1908!
Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery is the charming story about Anne Shirley, an orphan girl who is sent to live with the Cuthberts by mistake. The serious and no nonsense Marilla Cuthbert and her kindhearted but shy brother Matthew, decide to keep her.
The story follows Anne on her adventures from young girl into her teen years. There are escapedes at tea parties, Sunday School socials, even at school. Anne is always getting into mishaps. The story also tells of friendship and the feud between Anne and a boy at school who calls her names.
I am glad that I finally read Anne of Green Gables.
I enjoyed laughing at Anne, as she prattles on abut things- she has a lot to say. I underlined quote after quote quote to be used at opportune moments.
While I don't recommend this title as a boy read, it is wonderful for girls and women!
Set out the tea set and read all about this red haired, freckled girl, Anne Shirley.
My love of this movie and now the book has inspired an- Anne spelled with an "e", Pinterest Board.
