The House that Pinterest Built is an idiosyncratic decorating/interior design style book by film star Diane Keaton. In the tradition of her two previous books (California Romantica and House), the book explores Keaton's obsession with home and what it means and how to live more fully, beautifully, and happily in one's own abode. The book will be of interest to fans of Keaton's earlier books and of the star herself, as she features her own dream house. At once a style guide, an inspirational tome, and a how-to volume on making one's home, The House that Pinterest Built will serve as a go-to reference for all those seeking to spur their own creativity as they embark on the creation of home.

If you have read The House that Pinterest Built, Smart Spaces, The Alchemy of Things, or Elements of Style you're going to love Perfect Imperfect. Wabi-sabi and new creative interior design expressions: Perfect Imperfect is a stunning collection of homes and studios of creatives from all over the world, with thought-provoking text by Karen McCartney and stunning visuals by Sharyn Cairns and Glen Proebstel. Perfect Imperfect takes as its founding principle the Japanese concept of wabi-sabi. Wabi-Sabi advocates the beauty to be found in imperfection, impermanence and the authentic. Importantly this is done without losing sight of the benefits of living in the 21st century; where designers are merging digital technology with the handmade, rethinking how to use space and accommodating the natural world. Creating a new interior design vocabulary: As the collaborative process for creating Perfect Imperfect involved working across continents, the authors created a list of words and phrases that define how to curate the work they include in their stunning book. Their new interior design and interior decorating vocabulary includes terms such as mutability, irregularity, unfinished and incomplete, void, the effects of accident, unpretentious, simplicity, contrasts, and Leonard Koren's idea that 'beauty can be coaxed out of ugliness'. The new words and phrases introduced by the authors define the book's visual sections: • Spirit of Nature • Strange Beauty • Mark of Hand • Deep Shadow • Weathering & Decay • And, Incomplete and Irregular A beautiful, inspirational decorative book: Perfect Imperfect is a celebration of accident, curation, collection, hesitation, collaboration, reuse, reimagining and true originality. It explores an established aesthetic in a new way and embraces current design objects alongside well-worn ones; featuring interior settings that mix comfort, design and an off-beat beauty.
The Alchemy of Things explores interior spaces at the edges of the decoratively possible. The book details a series of eighteen fascinating homes that come from a truly creative place, transcending conventional notions of collection and display.This new beauty taps into a craving for a personal space with rich layers, a little bit of oddity and an irrepressible joie de vivre. A mix of artists, interior designers, architects, collectors, gallerists, stylists, furniture designers and vintage retailers open the doors to their own homes - many for the first time.
Once they had it all: a home with a man who adored her, three children they cherished, a life filled with passion and promise. Until one troubled child cost them everything. After a childhood of constant upheaval, all Cleo Formby wanted was to put down roots, to fill a house with family and love. When Malcolm Channing swept into her life, she gained it all: the home, the children, the love of a good man who adored her— Until their firstborn daughter tore their family apart, and even the love between Cleo and Malcolm wasn't strong enough to survive the devastation. Five years later, that daughter returns, destitute—with a child in tow. Cleo and Malcolm are thrown together again…and realize that their love has never died. But both have ties to others now, and their daughter is no less troubled than before. Being in constant proximity yet unable to be together is a constant heartache, but the welfare of this little grandson has to take first place. When Malcolm's new life is shattered by treachery, can he and Cleo overcome the wounds of the past and find their way back to the magic that once filled the house that love built?

She writes with warmth and emotional truth.” ~ #1 NY Times bestselling author Debbie Macomber
Feminized Popular Culture in the Early Twenty-First Century
Author: Elana Levine
Publisher: University of Illinois Press
Category: Social Science
Media expansion into the digital realm and the continuing segregation of users into niches has led to a proliferation of cultural products targeted to and consumed by women. Though often dismissed as frivolous or excessively emotional, feminized culture in reality offers compelling insights into the American experience of the early twenty-first century. Elana Levine brings together writings from feminist critics that chart the current terrain of feminized pop cultural production. Analyzing everything from Fifty Shades of Grey to Pinterest to pregnancy apps, contributors examine the economic, technological, representational, and experiential dimensions of products and phenomena that speak to, and about, the feminine. As these essays show, the imperative of productivity currently permeating feminized pop culture has created a generation of texts that speak as much to women's roles as public and private workers as to an impulse for fantasy or escape. Incisive and compelling, Cupcakes, Pinterest, and Ladyporn sheds new light on contemporary women's engagement with an array of media forms in the context of postfeminist culture and neoliberalism.

Have you ever sensed someone was watching you? But nothing there? Do you wonder about what happens to you or a loved one after death? I want to assure you that your loved ones know what you are doing in your daily lives after they are gone. Through all my experiences I have had since I was a child until today, I truly believe the spirit never dies. I have documented many encounters with spirits from sensing them, seeing them, hearing music, voices and experiencing dreams from 2012-2018. This book also shares with you a true account of my memories in a past-life regression hypnosis technique and how it directly affects my life today. You will learn steps on how to meditate properly and what I see during my meditation. Being an empath and medium has been an enlightening experience. I have spent years researching and learning many things to help me embrace and expand my gift. The biggest blessing is seeing how communicating with spirits can heal one’s heart and soul knowing their loved one can see them after they have passed away. My abilities are a gift from God.
