The Moonlit Garden
The Moonlit Garden

3.0 out of 5 stars An entertaining read, 3 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very descriptive and atmospheric and one of those books you cannot leave down. However felt as it developed, some of the story line was just too predictable and too simply wrapped up and that the characters were sketched so lightly that in the end you began to question the credibility of some of the too easily tied up outcomes. If you want a light, undemanding read though this is it.


Drawing Projects: An Exploration of the Language of Drawing
Drawing Projects: An Exploration of the Language of Drawing

Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars This is both inspiring and practical, 15 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I really love this book - you can work through the stages methodically to develop your skills or you can browse for inspiration and look at very well produced art work from experienced painters and artists. It is both educational, accessible and encouraging ni the way that it is written. I am really glad to have this book as part of my resource library to dip in and out of and at other times work alongside.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected...., 15 Feb. 2014

Not a particularly attractive or good marriage of chrome and rubber; also required a much thicker cord to be able to secure as hole in top is quite large so cord pull kit bought was not sufficient as cord too light. Did the job but would not buy again.

3.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says ...., 15 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Is what it looks like - but just a wee bit light and 'plastic' feeling - would not suit everywhere and more for laminate style stuff than wooden cupboards. Have a good grip edge for older persons. Did the job but a bit disappointing. Let's see if it last without cracking after regular use.

3.0 out of 5 stars Worth buying but not that simple...., 15 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book has many attractive ideas and good illustrations that guide you along with the instructions. It is also positively a promotion of using 'used' and recycled materials - but what it does assume is a high level of dexterity particularly in cutting out very fine and intricate patterns with a scalpel to gain a high level of finesse in the final product. It is not really for the beginner in terms of craft making experience. Many of the projects require a lot of patience, a list of materials and time as they are quite intricate. The book is inspiring and a good source of ideas though but could gain from rating each project on level of intricacy. I also personally felt that the tools & materials page should be at the front not at the back of the book. It is a lovely gift book as it is so attractively bound and produced.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is truly a journey without words, 15 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Journey (Hardcover)
How can so much can be said without a word on the page? This is so inspiring and beautifully illustrated and has a depth one would not imagine. It is I think one of those books that transcends age - it can be a simple children's story book or a profound statement on the essence of life's journey depending on where you are at and the 'journey' you want to go on. I loved it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully illustrated and different, 7 Nov. 2011
This review is from: Nordic Bakery Cookbook (Hardcover)
This book is really a beautifully illustrated and atmospheric cook book even the paper is lovely ... however, it assumes a lot of knowledge and is short on working detail - one gets the impression it is written for and by really experienced bakers. It could do with a glossary at the back and an elaboration on some of the ingredients and where to get them or what to substitute them with. e.g. even the dried yeast referred to - is a different product from the one I normally use which did not work as well. Also the volume and qauntities are for making large batches of bread at once. Will continue to experiment and enjoy the different flavours though and it really opens the possiblities to baking very different things. Lots of options for using rye flour!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 7 Nov. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I love Natalie Merchant's work and so was really looking forward to this arriving only to discover when I got it that it was not compatible with my DVD player which was set to recognise DVD's from Europe and Asia but not USA - did not spot this possible incompatabitly issue on purchase. So it is not possible for me to rate this item but I am sure it merits at least 5 stars!!!!


Nothing Above My Shoulders But the Evening
Nothing Above My Shoulders But the Evening
Offered by CAC Media UK
Price: £6.84

3.0 out of 5 stars Easy listening but some tracks a bit dated, 7 Nov. 2011
This is very relaxing background music. A few of the tracks though are a bit dated and 'samey' at this point when there has been a plethora of this kind of music in from the mid eighties. But nevertheless worth the purchase.
