'A Bit of Velvet and a Dash of Lace'

I got quite excited when I discovered this book on the Amazon website; particularly as it said that you can pre-order it in the UK - Great, I thought, I won't have to wait for it to be shipped from the States....
I enjoy looking through all of my interior books, so would love to add this one to my collection - I went for the pre-order button......having gone through the check-out, it then said that the estimated dispatch date was 15th September 2008! That seems to me a VERY long time to wait, so perhaps they shouldn't be advertising it just yet?


  1. That book looks fabulous! I love all the Country Living decorating books!
    I don't think I have ever commented on your blog before, but I have been a visitor and admirer for a long time! Your home, crafts, and collections are so beautiful and inspiring!

  2. How frustrating! I suppose it will be a nice surprise when it finally arrives as you'll have perhaps forgotten about it!

    Lovely day yesterday!

    That is far too long to wait. Apparently lots of the high street stores make quite a bit of profit on their pre-orders, the ones where they ask for a deposit eg. Harry Potters. Simply because people forget to then go and collect the book. At least Amazon will ship it too you and it will be a nice surprise.

  4. September! Goodness gracious! That's my birthday month, maybe I can put it on my wish list. xo, suzy

  5. Certainly seems a little early to be advertising, it, I agree! But I think I will need to get that one, too!

  6. Have you visited their is quite eye-catching! I found out about them through my blogging friend Polly...
    She has a post with the link if you are interested in visiting.

  7. Oh, I'm just on pins and needles! I can't wait. I think the US is supposed to have copies sometime in April but that may have changed. I love everything about that style!! Blessings... Polly

  8. No wonder I haven't seen it around yet. The cover is so pretty, I definately be watching for it on the shelves when it comes out!! They may be a bit early, but they sure know how to whet an appetite.


Thank you for finding the time to visit me...
