Bookcase Tour Tuesday

Second day of my barrister/"bearister" bookcase tour.... begun by Melanie 



















here is the top shelf with the door open... bears, ( hmmm...  some of them have expressions like they have been up to no good .... )...  a miniature version of a Julie McCullough jester doll...  and oh,... a baggie full of dolls heads... sitting on a few embroidery books.  That white bear on the second shelf is embroidered with bullion stitch roses, so I had to learn how to do those stitches....  I want to try some ribbon embroidery some day too if you notice a book on that.

A barrister case works by sliding the door up and over the top of the shelf...quite neat.   When the doors of my case are closed they look like the shelf below...  little window panes.



















Chocoholic noticed How to Massage your Cat last Tuesday.  This fun little book is hilarious.  I laughed so hard when I first saw it that I just had to have it. Now...I take it out every so often... and still laugh.  It's great to look at the expressions on the cat's face.















The inside cover says it is by the real Alice of Alice's Restaurant...the song.



















Click on pic to "biggify".....














I think the rest of her cats ran away!! lol.....














It's just simple little sentences on each page with a funny picture like this.... but, it's great for a laugh...  along with my Calvin and Hobbs books.  Perfect for those days when you don't want to take anything seriously.

Your bears look as if butter wouldn't melt in their mouths or should I say honey. Now what have they been up to? Actually your cupboard looks so interesting and full of fun things in there. Sorry for rummaging about in it but couldn't resist. Oh that bowl of heads is very interesting now are you going to do something about them?

I love peeking into other peoples' lives through their blogs. Some years ago there was a book '101 uses for a dead cat' (there was one about dogs as well)..... at least massaging a cat isn't quite as cruel!!

I want a book that teaches my pets to give ME a massage!

Maybe she used her other cats for practising her recipes;-0

When I first "biggified" the top photo I saw the doll face in the bag it startled me slightly;-)

The book looks great!

see, a post with a bag of doll heads mentioned would be really creepy coming from someone who doesn't craft ;)

sounds like a funny book :D
